A "Gorjuss" Twinkling Tuesday...

...and Gorjuss it is indeed!

I was SO excited to meet up with Janna this weekend. I know I said that yesterday, but seriously we had a BLAST! While stamping, both of us practiced hair coloring techniques and well...I got to stamp a few of these cuties!

I HAVE to have this stamp. I really don't like to pay shipping, esp. international but seriously she is the CUTEST!

Our very own Kimmie's son Nicky was the "Temporary Twinkie" this week and chose a VERY challenging Blue, Purple, and Orange color combo for this week's Twinkling Tuesday challenge. Using the new Wisteria paper from Basic Grey I got the blue and purple down no problem, and then I added some orange to her hair, tights, and a few colorful brads to tie it all in and Voila! I think I like it! :)

I have to say that in times of trial, LOL, some of our best work is born, so be sure to check out the rest of the Twinkle Team's blogs today as I'm sure their creations are nothing short of amazing! Be sure to visit:

Want to play along with us this week? Be sure to use keyword MTTSC22 if you upload to SCS or PCP and leave a comment on the Twinkling Tuesday blog so we know you played along! Know any little ones that would like to be a "Temporary Twinkie"? Email me and we'd love to have your son or daughter issue a Guest Challenge!

Thanks for visiting and have a gGORJUSS day! ~Jessica :)

I can tell you have been practicing hair colouring. When you wrote that, my first thought was that you guys were training to be hair dressers. Then my brain kicked in and I realized what you meant. Only took a few seconds-really! I am ok with hair shadows but not so good with highlights! Great way to incorporate tricky colours using Wisteria paper. I am DYING to get my hands on some!
