CELEBRATED {My Besties UK September Same but Different}


Its time for the SAME BUT DIFFERENT September mid month post at
My Besties UK Challenge
The design team gets the same image to create with and it usually ends up in so much fun to see what each of us do with the image incorporating our own styles.

Here is my project using this cute little fairy from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I am sure you will all agree, that she is just elegantly perched on the gorgeous flower.

The embellishments have been created with punches. The buttons, bling and design papers are from my stash.  The image has been coloured in Photoshop CS3.  

The sentiment has been coloured with dry chalks and is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  

Hop over to My Besties UK Challenge and see what my team mates has created.
