DREAM BIG {DigiStamps4Joy Challenge 117}

{A good life is when you assume nothing,
do more, need less, smile often,
dream big, laugh a lot,
and realise how blessed you are.}

Another design team project for our current challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog. The theme for this month is ANYTHING GOES + OPTIONAL TWIST ANYTHING BEGINNING WITH A 'B'.

Most South Africans would have heard of Tanya O'Connor's very popular colouring books for adults and DS4J is so honoured to have Tanya on board as one of our artists. This image of Tanya is called  Strong Lady 8.  You can purchase her here.

The image has been coloured with Copics. The beautiful sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The design papers and buttons are from my stash.  The flowers have been created with flower punches and Stickles. 

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #117.
