ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY {August Challenge at My Besties UK}

{READY SET SMILE ...}

The theme for the month of August at My Besties UK Challenge, is
ANYTHING GOES with an OPTIONAL TWIST of SPARKLE OR BLING.

Here is my design team project for My Besties UK using this super fun FLUFFY girl from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I am sure you will all agree, that we all just love a bit of retail therapy now and then.

The embellishments have been created with punches and the crochet flowers have been made for me by a dear friend with yarn I inherited from my late mom. The brads, bling and design papers are from my stash.  The image has been coloured in Photoshop CS3.  

The sentiment and edges of the image have been coloured with dry chalks and is from
Paulette {Create with TLC}.  

Hop over to My Besties UK Challenge and enter your Bestie creations.
