YESTERDAY ... {February 2018 Reminder Project for Color It Create It Show It Off}

{... and many more ...}

Here is my April 2018 REMINDER project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this super adorable little girl from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I am sure you will all agree, that she is just so a pretty amongst the flowers.
I have coloured in Photoshop CS3.

The flourishes have been stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps and fussy cut. The buttons and design papers are from my stash. Added a bit of Stickles glitter glue.

The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.
