It's JiFFy Time

 **This is a prescheduled post.  I am currently out of town for Bill's family reunion**

Hi everyone!  I have a fun post for you all today.  The gals over from the JiFFy challenge (which stands for Just for Fun) have invited me to play along in their challenge this month!  Every month one of the JiFFY girls chooses the paper and another chooses the image and they are sent to the group.  The challenge is they never know what they’re getting until they arrive.  It’s always a surprise!  I am SUPER excited to play along this month -thanks girls!

This month Michele sent everyone the amazing "Shabby Flower" double sided paper by The Girl's Paperie.  LOVE this paper, one side has soft pink flowers and the other is the trendy notebook paper print.  Carole chose to send out the uber cute Surfer Girl by Elzybells.  Man, I haven't played with Elzy in quite awhile -what FUN.  Perfect choices ladies!!

I colored the image with Copic markers and added tiny little bling on the surf board flowers. The sticker letters are Tiny Type from Cosmo Cricket, too cute!  I was happy to have another chance to use them.

Be sure to check out the other JiFFy girls to see what they did with the same paper and image!
