The Sugar Bowl....

well just a quickie from me before bed....over at The Sugar Bowl they have a fabby sketch for you to follow ..i was going to use one of the newer Sassy's but this one is Milly's favourite and she insisted i use it :0)...only 8 but very bossy!!.... 

not sure what's happening to the pic's in blogger lately coz they are really clear on my pooter :0(

i think the papers were Bo Bunny but they are the last few scraps..."Bad Hair Day" is coloured with ProMarkers...and other than a little distressing and stickles ive kept it pretty simple..the flowers are an EK retro punch and ive used little button brads for the middles as this was the optional extra theme for the challenge....

I LOVE these sassy girls and their creator Krista has a fantastic blog full of inspiration....i've even taken some tips on doing Milly's hair...not totally tidy but good for a first attempt???

 i cant believe how quickly she is growing!!

well thanks for stopping by..your comments are always greatly appreciated :0)
