I'm pleased to say that I didn't get washed away in the monsoon at Saturday's christening. Although, my frock was pretty much ruined anyway as I put it on 3 weeks after buying it to realise that is now way too big for me! Grr. Love that dress too :o( . However, as Ali said, at least it wasn't too small for me, at least I went the right way along the scale! Despite the fashion dramas, the christening was lovely and Emily Grace didn't even cry! Quite the opposite actually, she high-fived the priest when he reached out to try and touch her forehead! Bless!
After the excitement of the christening, I came home and made up my 'challenge sheet' for the week and had a delve in my newly put together "Favourite Swap Images which I HAVE to Use" bag. The first one to come out was this gorgeous Tilda, which I decided would be perfect for the sketch over on the Just Magnolia challenge blog.
I have to admit, I am extremely partial ot the lovely papers and colours on this one! It's also the first time that I tried colouring behind the image too and, despite the masses of blender pen I went through, I think it went pretty well. Still addicted to those scalloped blanks though I'm afraid.....!
Stamps: Magnolia - received in swap.
Paper & Card: Stampin' Up.
Ink & Colour: Memento, Copic markers, Spica glitter pen & white gel pens.
Tools & Embellishments: Nestabilities, Prima flowers, Dew Drops, C.Cards Mini Messages.
Anyway, best go and get in the shower now.... wish it was still the weekend and I didn't have to go to stinky work!
