Summer Fun

Good morning and I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I took my Aunt down to Stratford on Avon on Saturday to see her latest great grandchild.  We had a lovely time spent at my cousin's house.  Yesterday we went to the park with my sister, daughter and her partner then they came back for dinner and it was such a lovely day we ate al fresco!  Now as I write this its pouring down!!

I so enjoyed colouring in my Mayzy image for the blog hop the other day that I decided to do another!  Here she is:

She is called Mallory and I coloured her with my Copics! The papers are digi by Meghan Mullens called Morning Dew.  The sentiment tags are LOTV.  The flowers are Wild Orchid and I have sprayed them with some Crafter's Companion  Spay and Sparkle.  The leaves are made with a punch not sure of the make it looks like a woodware one but I don't think it is!  Dies used are SB Grand Nesties Ovals and Beaded and Scallop Circles, MB Fremont Crest Flourish.  The butterfly I have had in my stash for years its by Crafty Bitz, Pearls are Mei and ribbon from stash.  I took another picture outside and I can't decide which is better the one above looked a bit yellow but the one outside looked washed out -

mmm very washed out!!

Challenges I would like to enter:

Wild Orchid Craft - Sunshine
Joanna Sheen - Girls Girls Girls
Simon Says Stamp - Flower Power

Thank you so much for coming by today, I really appreciate it!  Take care xx
