I AM HAPPY {My Besties UK October Same but Different}

{I am Wishing a Happy Birthday to ....}

Its time for the SAME BUT DIFFERENT October 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 beautiful girl from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I tried to use Halloween colours as our theme for October is Halloween. I am sure you will all agree, that she looks very pleased with herself holding that huge doughnut, peeking from behind.

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

The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  

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