It's all about Friends @ Diva's

Hello again! I'm guessing you will be fed up of me by the end of this week - nothing from me for ages then BAM a post nearly everyday!!
Today its a new challenge at


and this week its all about


and I had the perfect image to use
 I adore this range of Uptown Girls stamps from Stampin' Bella,  I have a couple more if I ever get time to use them! Lush papers are Basic Grey Little Black Dress and the black lace and Prima flower were in my stash. As the paper was so busy I kept the embellishment to a minimum. The sentiment comes with the stamp. I seem to have got the paper piecing bug too!
We have a fabulous sponsor this week 

ll the details of the challenge and some gorgeous inspiration from the Diva's can be found on the main challenge blog.

That's all from me today, I will be back tomorrow with my MAWTT make
Thanks for looking guys
 Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
