LIVE YOUR LIFE {DigiStamps4Joy Challenge 119}

and forget about your age.}

Another design team project for our current challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog. The theme for this month is ANYTHING GOES + OPTIONAL TWIST ADD 3 OF SOMETHING.

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 6.  You can purchase her here.

The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The beautiful sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The design papers and brads are from my stash.  The flowers have been made with flower punches and the crochet centers have been made for my again by a very special friend.

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #119.
