May 2017 Colour It Create It Show It Off REMINDER POST


The theme for the month of May at
My Besties
Colour It! Create It! Show It Off! Challenge

Here is my REMINDER project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this pretty fairy from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I am sure you will all agree, that she is just adorable.
I have coloured her in Photoshop CS3.

The folded embellishments at the top have been created with scallop square punches. 
The flowers and background are from Fred She Said and you can purchase it here and here.
The design papers are from my stash.  I also added some Stickles for a bit of sparkle.
The sentiment is from
Paulette {Create with TLC}

I have created this wildlife layout with photos I took during our game trip in Pilanesberg in March this year.  This zebra was just too funny for words and I am sure you will agree that he needs to get hold of a toothbrush.  The Blacksmith Plover bird had such a wonderful time bathing and preening his feathers.
I would like to enter this layout over at Lets Scrap Sketches for their
Sketch 5-15-17 challenge
