Float Like A Butterfly

Somebody help me! For the last few months I have taken to reading romantic chick lit !! Eeek!! Mainly because it's so cheap to buy for my Kindle, but now I find myself enjoying it. OMG, before you know it I will be on the hard stuff... Mills & Boon ! And we all know it's a slippery slope from there to Barbara Cartland. Do I need professional help?

Anyhoo... enough chit chat. We have a new challenge for you over at Totally Papercrafts - hosted by the lovely Wendy who has chosen the theme

Things With Wings



I have used this cute Teddy Bea image where I cut out her arms, decoupaged them and then coloured her with Copics.


This week we are being sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop who are offering a $10 gift voucher to the lucky winner. Pop over to the blog to see the work of my fab teamies and say hell to our newest member of the gang Susan of Mix's Meanderings.

Teddy Bea Digi, coloured with Copics.        DP - GCD Tea Time
