A GOOD TEACHER {Fresh Brewed Designs SCHOOL DAYS Challenge}

SCHOOL DAYS Challenge
FRESH BREWED DESIGNS

Hi my lovely followers and visitors, just a quick reminder about our current Challenge: SCHOOL DAYS that is happening over at Fresh Brewed Designs.  For all the rules and details, please click HERE.

I have created a centre step card using this beautiful Fresh Brewed Designs image called AKILAH THE MERMAID. Isn't she just beautiful and it looks like she has a wealth of knowledge.  You can purchase her here.  

The image has been coloured with Derwent H2O pencils and the edges around the image with Copics..  The design paper, bling, brads and clip are from my stash. The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.
