A LITTLE { Reminder Project August 2018 Color It Create It Show It Off}

{A LITTLE ...}

Here is my August 2018 REMINDER project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this super adorable BATS IN THE BELFREY girl from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I have coloured her in Photoshop CS3.

The flower embellishmenst have been created with a folded paper squares. The buttons and design papers are from my stash and the crocheted buttons flowers have been made for me by me very special sister in law. 

The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.
