xxo and a new pet

Hi Folks,

I finally have a layout to share with you !! This one has been sitting on my desk for a good three weeks - it was supposed to be in time for the end of the month for the Blue Fern Studios July sketch challenge! But nevermind! I managed to get a few spare moments today to finally stick everything down and complete it!

Here is the beautiful sketch (done by Michele Singh - of C'est Magnifique fame)....

And here is my version using some of the fantastically versatile Kaisercraft - BaseCoat II range. This one features Lucy all dressed up and ready to go to the school disco a few weeks back- doing the whole hair flick thing for dad!

 And some closeups - i tried to get some texture by using texture paste and a brick wall mask to mirror the background- some texture tape- stamping, canvas flourish, Blue Fern Studios chipboard fence, some rubons, Prima cogs, Prima flowers, Pink Paisley letters.

And for those of you not on facebook- here is the latest addition to the family - Lucy's pet mouse- Patches. She is starting to train her to do tricks! If any one can - Lucy can!!

Thanks for visiting today and please feel free to leave me a comment so that i know that you have visited!

Till next time

changed your blog again, clever chickie :) that range of pepper is versatile, one of my favourites - she looks so grown up with her straightened!
