Hugs and Kisses challenge

Almost Monday but what a wonderful weekend I have had. Got up early yesterday and did some cleaning around the house, did laundry, got groceries and had time to play in my craft room. I was in the mood to play with some of my paper flowers after chatting about them with some friends and I wanted to enter the DP2 Challenge again to hopefully increase my chances of being offered a guest dt position. The challenge this week is "Hugs and Kisses" and what could symbolize that better than a baby and her teddy huh?

I tried to give the bear a little texture with the washcloth and colorless blender technique and really let the paper stand out rather than do my usual multiple layers. I did add some flowers and a butterfly cause all little girls look better surrounded by flowers. Alright, hope everyone has a wonderful week and I will see you back here on Wednesday for a blog hop I am participating in.
