A Shy Little Gal From Mo


I've always loved the innocence Mo Manning captures in her images of children - this little cutie is called "Shy" and is available instore HERE. I used this week's Sketch Saturday sketch for the layout - a good sketch is always a fabulous place to start when you have your image coloured up but your mojo got left behind amongst the Christmas shopping crowds - LOL. I must say it was fun having a break from Christmas cards but I know I'll miss them once Christmas is over!

The DPs are Alphabet Soup by My Minds Eye. My generous blogging friend Betty from Simply Betty Stamps sent me them to play with - along with some other fun papers I haven't seen here in Australia. Betty has the whole range and more in her store HERE - and they are on sale at the moment too!!!

Once again I used my Whiff of Joy banner die and cuttlebug alphas to create my sentiment and glittered them up with some stickles. Some prima blossoms and paper roses finish off the embellishments.
