With a little help from my friends.....

Now that I have finally given this gift I can post it...WOO HOO!!

Again....I am extolling the wonderful virtues of the crafting community out there. The incredibly talented, wonderful and good humoured Debbie P assisted me with an image swap, whereby, you exchange images with others who do not have the set or the image that you may be after. I have gone through a HUGE amount of journals over the Christmas period and the last one off the rank was for my best friend. She is a "blue" kinda gal...which is perhaps is why we get on so well....cause neither of us do PINK!!! LOL!! Anyhow...I found the perfect paper at my local Riot Art and Craft Store...and then came the decision of making the image choice. The one I chose is The Greeting Farm - Twinkle Tots named Izzy. The result is this....


Here's a close up...don't look too closely...I still have a lot to learn about watercolouring!! It does however alos highlight the stunning roses that I purchased from Bizzy Bec's. They really finish the whole project perfectly.



Thanks so much to Debbie and Bec for helping me put together this great project.

Stuff used:
Card: (SU) Regal Rose, Watercolour paper.
Paper: My Memories Scrapbook Paper - 140974
Mediums: Faber-Castell Watercolour Pencils, Lyra Aquacolour Crayons
Misc: Nesties Ovals and Scallop Ovals, Roses fm Bec's

Yay- she looks FABULOUS!!!! A beautiful gift from a beautiful lady!
Re me - I must say I'm not sure my family would agree with the "good humoured" bit - but I'm blushing over your lovely compliments - which you should try to avoid doing since I've turned PINK now - LOL.

Did you get my comment??? I spent ages (?) drooling over this one! And ... then I think I closed the comment box ... before it had saved!!! I am a gumby! So ... didn't want to bore you with a repeated comment ... but still wanted to let you know that I stopped by for a visit! ROFL!!!!!
