Paper Pieced girl and bear .gypsy files

What a rainy/snowy/sleety spring day it is today :(  What great weather for spring break don't you think?  NOT!!!!!  But the good thing is while the kiddos watched a movie I got some scrappy time in :)

I created this layout for the Chopped challenge over at challenge masters.  I love me some good fun competition and this Chopped challenge is right up my alley!  There is some fierce competition too....lets see how long I last!!!  LOL

This weeks recipe is:
Yellow, scallops, and dimensional flowers.

I used paper from the Material Girl line by Cosmo Cricket.  It was perfect for this challenge!  To create the scallops I used a Creative Memories decorative trimmer that I just picked up.  These are super sweet to use and sadly they have discontinued them....if you can find one GRAB IT AND RUN!!! I was lucky to find that a friend of mine who is a CM consultant had an extra one that she used for demoing and she was happy to sell it to me!

I was happy to use up some of my dimensional flowers I have had in my stash for a long time.  I don't use orange and yellow often and those little orange and yellow polka dot flowers on this layout never seemed to be right for any project....well.....they must have been waiting just for this because they fit perfectly with it!

I have been seeing some super cute projects with paper pieced bears lately and I knew I could create my own patterns with my Gypsy and some of the cartridges that I have so I set to work on doing so.  It isn't perfected yet...but I think I have a good start.  I created the little girl on this layout along with the teddy bear below.  I used peachy keen stamps for the faces....I think I need to try to draw the faces for my bear as I am just not quite happy with it yet.  I have added the .gypsy files for the child and the bear (the file is for the whole body of the girl but I didn't use the legs for this project).  Feel free to grab the files:
