Where Oh Where Has Jessica Gone???

Wow, it feels like forever since
I last was able to Craft!!!
My sunburn didn't allow me to lift my arms up 
even a few inches
But now I am back,
and very
determined to get the ball
rolling again.

In my best Ricky Ricardo voice...
"Jessica, you got a lot of catching up to do"

So tonight I made a list
to help get me back on track.
The list started with my personal
commitments and DT responsibilities!!!

The first project
I wanted to complete
was the
Fresh Brewed Designs
Facebook Challenge
going on now until midnight on July 16th

We were given this adorable image 
to play with

The sentiment is
 a Unity Itty Bitty
which will soon be added
to my online collection

How I Paper Pieced my images:
I started by first resizing my image in a MS Word Document.
I then pasted 4 images upon the paper
all of equal size and played with
the placement a bit to be sure they 
were spread apart enough.

Then I chose my papers.  
I started with a basic 8 1/2" X 11"cream card stock by Recollections.
I then adhered 4.25" squares of Kraft card stock, teal dp and dark brown dp from Crate Paper Portrait Collection to the cream card stock.
It looked a bit like this before being loaded into the printer:
A little fussy cutting, my trusty Glu Glider Pro, some Zig glue,
a bit of detail with my Water Color markers,
a tad sprinkle of Martha Stewart Tinsel-Garnet
A finished project!

Don't forget to Hop with

It's gonna be HOT!!!
