PRAISE {September Challenge at My Besties UK}

{PRAISE ...}

The theme for the month of September at My Besties UK Challenge, is

Here is my design team project for My Besties UK using this super adorable little girl called SOPHIA from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I am sure you will all agree, that she is just so adorable.

The flowers have been cropped from Bo Bunny design papers and the flourishes stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps. The 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}.
