It's a "Spectacular" Girl Thing!

Hello delightful friends and family! 
 The weekend is almost here and so is National Scrapbook Day.  Lots of fun planned at Scrapper's Edge our lss where I work and this time I get to play instead of work! Yay!!
I can't believe I was able to squeeze in a card before I start organizing my stuff and loading up the car (that's going to take some time while watching my two little grandkids who love to "help" Grammie!)

Here's my card and you know that "bling" is a girl thing so I made sure my fun glasses were blinged up with my Spica Pens.  I've also added a couple of Hero Hues (Hero Arts) adhesive gems to add to the bling. The paper is Authentique "Delightful" Collection and the fun glasses and sentiment is from the Sweet Stamp Shop (Spectacle set).  Other than the bling this design is pretty clean.  The sketch is from the challenge blog    Deconstructing Jen and this is Deconstructed Sketch #50 this is my first time playing with this challenge blog and I kept this very true to the sketch.  I'm also playing along with Play Date Cafe #130  and the color combo is Dolphin, Salmon, Sea Glass.  I'm also entering this in the Spectacular Spectacles Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Be sure and head over to all these sites and check out all the inspiration.

So glad this pic shows the glimmer!

Other ingredients: Bazzill card stock and Neenah bright white card stock; Memento tuxedo black ink.

Have a great weekend and I'm hoping to have my project finished for my new great niece and some scrapbook pages completed for my youngest granddaughter, Tucker! With 12 hours of crop time I hope I can get something accomplished (!) and I'll share next week.
