Princess Who Kissed A Frog mmwah - Saturated Canary Challenge

Hello my lovelies how are you all? First of all I would like to say a huge sorry for not getting around blogs at all today & only managed a few internet is now driving me.........BALD.....yep blooming BALD.......we are having a nightmare. I ordered my lushious new images from Krista & I got them sent & I managed to get on AOL this morn...........yeah, I still havnt downloaded them all it took me an hour to do 2.............hubster ringing tomorrow & unless they do something swift we are cancelling & I will go back to AOL!!!!!!!! Having crappy internet is NOT good with a teenager in the house.......not quite sure what made me bald.............mmmmm was it Jake or was it Talk Talk..........arrggghhhhh.

Right tantrum out the way, dummy is back in my mush....... Cus I've had no internet such a lot I have had time to finally get on with diggish one I'm half way thru........yay get me lol.
I have however got Natalie's Trinket Box finally finished this morning.............yep took me til now to take piccy's as I knew I couldnt get on my blog....shall I just show you & stop moaning........
Now I made this for the Saturated Canary Challenge as this one is Anything Goes (yeah including my darn internet), ooohhh dont ya just love it when you can set your imagination

This beautiful image is 'Princess Who Kissed A Frog' by the lovely Krista Smith at Saturated Canary.......coloured with copics but she was coloured a few days ago & I forgot to write them down........sorrrryyyyyy.
I fussy cut her out & cut off her frog.........he hasnt croaked it honest.......just ermmmm.....fell into the trash!
I then glued her onto a Marianne cut out die thingy.....(technical term)

Paper is 12x12 'Strawberry Plaid' by Magnolia........its gorgeous, the cream flower & the Gem thingy-ma-jigs(technical term again)on the front are also from Magnolia.
The other flowers are from Crafty Emma's  
The wee ickle gems & lace is from my stash. The box I've had for over a year, yes I have loads of ultrables & it takes me forever to get them brain is over-loaded I'm tellin ya..............

All paper edges were inked with Vintage Photo & so were the flutterbies, which were also cut out using my punch..........taaaa daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Yayyyyyy I got my post done woooooo friggin hoooooooo.....soz about moi french oops!!

Well I'm off for a shower then to bed but I promise I will be round in the morning..........I've really missed you guys & missed your gorgeous creations.
Thank you so much for stopping by & putting up with me mmwah loves ya all xoxoxoxox
Challenges I'm Entering.............

Hope your internet picks up. I know how frustrating it is when it's like that. Our wireless broadband kept cutting out due to interference with other hubs in area!! It was driving my daughter nuts as she needs it for work!! So now we have bought some Ethernet Cables and plug our computers straight into the Virgin Hub - ah bliss!! really fast now!!! :-))
