12 Phindy's Friday Challenge ... girly/feminine

Hello friends.  TGIF!  
It's challenge time over at Phindy's Place and we're inviting you to play along and create something girly or feminine using a Phindy's Place image.  What? You don't have a Phindy image?  Then hop over to the challenge blog right now and grab the adorable freebie posted there.

For my sample I used this Big Boots Girl image (there's several versions of this available... boy, girl, boy or girl with glasses, or African American).

I used some Bazzill paper, as I often do, but I also used some Stampin Up! cardstock (blue) for the first time ever thanks to a friend thinking I really needed to try it (she sent me some AND a matching marker and ink pad!).  Yep, this stuff is totally fantastic paper.  I love the weight of it.  It's so sturdy and that's just how I like cardstock to be.

I computer printed a sentiment to go with this.  I tried for a couple of days to think of something fun to use with this, but my time ran out so I went with "the road to success is always under construction" ... 
I sure would love it if you would leave me a comment with a suggestion of a better sentiment!!

So good to see you today!!! 
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop over to Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog to check out more girly creations.
