It Wasn't Me!!!

I just LOVE Mo Manning's kids! And the grumpy little gal on the left is just toooo adorable - maybe it's because as a mother I can relate to a cross-armed grumpy little thing pouting at me - but at least this one I don't have to deal with once I print her out and colour her up - LOL.

The idea if playing with mum's things also holds fond childhood memories - and the trouble my sisters and I would get into - hahaha. My mum was never really one for make-up - but I do remember she loved building models and we would play car crashes with them - oops - sorry mum! And my dad's things didn't survive intact either - you should have seen his face when he discovered us soaking the stamps off his limited edition first day covers for our own humble stamp collections!

So these cuties are not only fabulous images - they also make me reflect back to when I was a child - and when my own kids were younger! These gals are Two Jill (left) and Ella in Trouble (right) and can be found at Mo's online store - HERE.

The DP is Basic Grey and the sentiment was computer generated - but something I remember hearing once or twice - LOL

BUT WAIT - are you a watercolourist and didn't think you could USE digis - well one of the lovely lady's from Mo's Dream Team had some fabulous hints for watercolouring digis HERE - thanx Mina - I know at least one friend of mine who is over the moon!
