HAPPINESS ... {Color It Create It Show It Off February 2018 Challenge}


Can you believe it is already the month of February, and the year has already picked up speed.
My Besties
Colour It! Create It! Show It Off! Challenge

Here is my design team project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this cute BESTIES GIRL from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.  I have coloured her and added the background in Photoshop CS3.  She was really fun to colour and she is lovable holding that LUV bunting.

The folded flower has been created with folded paper squares and the crochet flowers have been made for me by a special friend and SIL.
The brad and design papers are from my stash.
The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC
