My New Eye and Brand New Sarah Kay!!!

But first I have to report... I have two eyes again!! Now only one works.. but I look normal! It blows me away the talent this woman has, really my eye looks real. Hubby said he doesn't think anyone could ever tell which one isn't real unless they knew to look directly at it. I will work on getting a photo to show off in the near future, but today - uh no.. My eyelids are all red and swollen from taking it in and out, and me learning to take it in and out by myself, so I don't have to call her in the middle of the night someday - LOL  I don't plan on taking it out that often -no I will not be one of those party trick people. I will be going back in three weeks to have the color tweaked it may be a shade lighter than my real eye, and to make sure the angle is correct. I told you this woman is a perfectionist, she even took flash photos to make sure that the flash shows in the same position as my real eye. Would not have even thought to worry about that! So when the swelling is down I'll have Hubby shoot a photo to show off the new me -

Now to the new Sarah Kays!

We all love Sarah Kay - especially me :0) And when I saw the new ones I just fell in love with each of them, but Jacqueline baking sweet treats, oh my she was the first one I inked up and had to color up! (You can see all of the new Sarah Kays HERE)

Love a girl making up some ...hhhmmmm I think Chocolate brownies! LOL

I knew exactly what paper I had to use, I found his cute piece of baking themed paper on a clearance rack - no name on it, but just loved it and was saving it for something special - nothing more special than new Sarah Kays!  I sewed it down with a striped scrap and blue Bazzil Swiss Dots paper. I made a lace doily border with a EK Success punch, and a pink dot ribbon.

I colored with my Copics, and all though it is hard to tell in the photo I highlighted a lot of this image with Spica Glitter pens - this baby sparkles in the light!
Hope you like Jacqueline - I know you are loving her and all the new Sarah Kays - me... I am thinking I need to go and see if I have everything to make some brownies :0)

HUGS and have a wonderful Sunday!
