Week 322: GIRL

It's time for a new cue word!  This one should be an easy one and we all need easy when the holidays are fast approaching, right?  Plus, this will be a two-week challenge, so you'll have plenty of time to play along despite the busy that is about to begin!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner a $15 gift certificate to the online store!

Don't miss their Black Friday sale going on right now!

Plus, you'll want to take a look at their Giving Thanks Sale while you're at it!
