Sunday Stamping Challenge and Avon's Vintage Blue Swatch

    In the facebook group Adventures In Stamping, our challenge for today was the sky is the limit.  I don't have to many stamping plates yet so I wasn't planning on participating but a thought pooped into my head.  I had just bought an Essence plate that had a sneaker and a high heel shoe on it and I remembered when a bunch of kids in my neighbor hood threw a bunch of shoes over the telephone lines last year and I thought, hey, that is perfect.  This is what I came up with.  It seemed like such a better idea in my head but oh well.  It turned out decent but I don't know how long it will stay on my nails.  I spent a lot of time on it and don't know if I want to redo my nails again today, I'm pretty tired. :-)
