LOOK CUTE {CREATE WITH TLC}

{DT Project for CREATE WITH TLC - NEW SET}

I have been playing again and this time with this wonderful LOOK CUTE set now available over at the Create with TLC Store here. Do yourself a favour and hop over to the shop, as I guarantee you, you will love the set.  Also with Create with TLC's blog and become a Follower there so that you don't miss any of the wonderful free sentiments, etc. that Paulette offers up on a daily basis.

Another Centre Step design. I tried to create a vintage look with this cute little vintage girl which is one of the gorgeous images in this set and don't you just love the sentiment - so perfect for the image, which of course is also in the same set.

I used Copics and dry chalks for the colouring.  the folded flowers were created with a Fold It Swirls template.  The photo turns and brads are from my stash. The design papers are from Fabscraps and Art from the Heart.



Here is the complete set:



I would love to enter this into the following challenges:
Leaving you with a photo I took of my niece and her youngest, Marko, nearly five years ago.
