Norma Jean?

TGIF times 1000! Hello everyone! Am I ever glad today is Friday. It's been a pretty stressful week, so I'm relieved that it's finally over. Thank you so much for all the prayers and good wishes that you've poured on me. You have no idea how much it means.

Hey, did you happen to know that stamping is a great way to relieve stress? Betcha didn't know that did you? {LOL} Yep, it's right up there with bubble baths, spa days and buying new stamps!

What better way to get your mojo going than with an awesome sketch challenge, which is exactly what we have today and every Friday courtesy of the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge!

Cheeky Glamour is one of my newest and most favorite stamps from The Greeting Farm. Okay, what isn't my most favorite stamp from The Greeting Farm? But these new "Cheeky" girls are especially fun because I'm such a huge fan of the 40's.

If you haven't already guessed, I'm going for Norma Jean aka Marilyn Monroe look. The wonderful DP is from the Will He B the 1? collection by Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker. (Both eclectic Paperie and A Cherry On Top carry Nikki Sivils paper, which I LOVE.) And what self-respecting glamour girl wouldn't have a fluffy boa? A bit of White Sparkly Fluff took care of that!

Come on and play with us this week! You'll definitely want to when you see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has created for your viewing pleasure:
