Now let’s see what the team have made for us for this weeks challenge!

Anjie - The image is the adorable new Octavia Best Friends, isn't she just adorable. She is flying out of the store. If you are wanting to practice your colouring I think this image is perfect for it with all that hair and the folds in the dress, so go on and grab it and get colouring.
The papers are from the Rose Budd download, which is also available as a CD if you prefer. I went around the edges of the papers and the image with the pearl blue Pan Pastel, you can't really see it on the photo but it gives it a great glittery effect. All the die cuts are from Tattered Lace. The scrabble letters are from Docrafts and you can buy them here.
The image is coloured with Graph'It Markers and the colours I used can be found on my blog.

Scatty Jan Woohooo Ive been on Digi Choosday a whole year, it's flown past- To celebrate I've made a cake. The Papers are from Cherry Blossom Lane  collection absolutly adorable collection , If I am ever stuck for papers there will always be one on here. and the scrummy owl is from The Girls Hoot Download Bundle.
