LIVE SIMPLY {Create with TLC}

{DT Project for CREATE WITH TLC}

I have been playing again and this time with this gorgeous MISSY CHIC created by the talented Mi Ran.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  Also visit Mi Ran's blog {Art by Miran} here.  You can purchase this cute Girl here.

Another Centre Step design. I tried to create a monochromatic blue design. I used H2O pencils and a white gel pen to get a softer colouring effect.  The wonderful versatile sentiments are from CREATE WITH TLC and you can purchase this set which has seven different sentiments in it here.  The buttons are from my stash and the bling was part of some candy I won from the lovely Annie.


I would love to enter this into the following challenges:
Leaving you with a photo I took of my nieces three little ones a few years ago.
