Challenge #8 - Watercolor

It's Sunday people!! That means a new challenge from PILE IT ON!! This week's challenge is to use WATERCOLORING on your project (and of course, at least one other current challenge from anywhere else in blog-land!!). Now I want it to be known that I am NOT a stamper! However, I also didn't set the challenge this week - my partner in crime Dalis did!

Also, it's the last Sunday of the month and our sponsor this week is STAMPS & SMILES! She has such cute stamps (like the cupcake on my tag) so you might want to check out the Stamps & Smiles store!
