Back to School!

Hi Friends,

I am counting the days now until my adorable girls go back to school! I love having them home with me with no commitments but after a while I miss my daily routine! So that would be 12 days to be exact! Well, it's on to another challenge over at the Outlawz and this week it is none other than Back to School!  I hope that you will follow me over to have fun this week in the Friday Copic Challenge!  Here is my card to help get your creative juiced flowing!

Isn't she so sweet! My daughter loves this image by MayzyArt!  One because her name is Hailey (same as hers ) and two because she is pigeon toed just like her!  She tells me all the time that the reason why a lot of my digis are drawn this way is because it makes them look cute!  ( like her )  Can't argue over the truth as I see it the same way! lol

We have a $10 gift certificate to Guylou's Inimitability  as a prize at the end of this month. Be sure to stop by her shop to see all her wonderful creations!

That's all for me today!

  6. I'm with your daughter. I love this image too! You did a great job on coloring her and I do love the plaids you've used. Beautiful card!

  9. Darlene, great coloring of this darling image! Love it! :^) The papers you chose are so cute, especially on the frame for your image! Love the colors and design, too! :^)

  10. Hey girlie, I always make your images larger so I can get a really good peek at them, and one thing that I noticed is just how all the rectangles within the plaids, papers and her glasses all work brilliantly together. You did a fantastic job colouring her hair and pleats too. ;)S

  11. Ooooo, fantastic coloring on the image, Darlene. Love the plaid paper to go with the plaid dress. Fabulous card! Don't you just love Mayzy's artwork?
