MARKO turns 3
{10 March 2012}

This little Free Weelin Wally digi came straight to mind for a birthday card for Marko.  And as usual my colouring is very unprofessional.  I still want to go for a lesson or two on using Pro Markers as I am using H2O's and just cant seem to get the hang of it.  Anyone know where one can purchase Pro Markers at a reasonable price in South Africa?





Cant believe 3 years can fly past without a blink and I am sure Heidi (Marko's Mum) will totally agree.  Marko is such a cheerful little chappie with no inhibitions whatsoever.  He investigates and to everything with gusto and always a smile on his face.
Marko 11 days old


Marko 2 years & 9 months







Recipe:

  • Centre Step Card {see Tutorial label in side bar}
  • Patterned Papers: Basic Grey
  • Brads: Buttons & Brads
  • Chipboard: Upikit
  • Marko - Upikit Stickers
  • 3 Rub-on
  • Raffia from stash
I would like to enter this creation for the following challenges:


Thank you to all my blogging buddies for stopping by and all your lovely comments.
