Digi Bell's March Blog Hop!!!

No you are not imagining things, this is my second post today!!
 Today is a very exciting day as it's The Digi Bell's March Blog Hop and boy are you in for a treat today because we have NOT one but TWO absolutely gorgeous new digi's designed by the extremely talented Elisabeth Bell!! If you arrived here from Janneke's Blog then you are definitely in the right spot but if not, then head on back to The Digi Bell's Blog so that you don''t miss any of the inspiration you will see along the hop!! I'm sure you have already seen this adorable images already as you have been hopping but just in case I will introduce you to
**Li'l Lillian**
**Sweet Tooth Mary**
I fell in love with these images as soon as I saw them (as I always do!!) And knew that I wanted to create two projects!! The first one I made was an altered First Tooth/ Curl box that my youngest son has in his time capsule!!  I know it's girly so only stuck everything down temporarily but in fact he loves it!

I  used papers from my scraps, coloured Mary Lou Sweet Tooth Fairy (which you can get from Elisabeth Bell's Digi Collection) with Tria markers and some glitter pens and added some embellishments!!

 For my second project I had an idea in mind and finally yesterday, last night and today it all came together with a few changes along the way!!! And I just love it!! The photos aren't the greatest as I've taken them in the evening so will replace them as soon as I'm up in the morning!!

I created a Book Card (following the tutorial on Tina's Blog) using Both Lil' Lil's and Mary Lou Sweet Tooth Fairy (which you can get right now from Elisabeth Bell's Digital collection). I wanted it to look like Lil' Lil's is colouring in Mary Lou Sweet Tooth Fairy so that is why the image is not fully coloured in and why I cut off the paper from the original image!! I then just added all my favourite embellishments (including flowers from hooked on Crafts and Magnolia Crystals) around the edge! I inked around the edge of the whole card and inside with white ink. I then added all my favourite crafty supplies inside!! I thought this would make  perfect gift for a little crafter!!
If you would like to win one of thes adorable images then all have to do is leave a comment on each of the GDT//DT blogs or the second way to win will be to make a card with the challenge of " FLOWERS" and post it on the Digi Bell Blog. You can use ANY Elisabeth Bell image just be sure to link to where the image is from!!
 Well now it's time to hop over to Wendy (aka Mrs. B) where you will be dazzled!! Have fun hopping!!!

I am entering my Bookcard into the following challenges:
* Crafty Catz - Red, White and Blue
