Hello Lilli Claire

Sadly.. today is my last challenge as apart of the Tiddly Inks Challenge design team... it has been the greatest experience to work with the FABULOUS Christy and all the other design team members over the last year- it has been such fun. Christy definitely made it super easy with all of her adorable digi images!

Especially the newest line of Lilli Claire.. she is quickly becoming my favorite! I couldn't help but to color this Bloom Lilli Claire image for my final challenge using this photo as inspiration...

And of course I had to give Lilli Claire some shiny black hair :)

Vintage-y Mother's Day

Wow! Did you all enjoy the Tiddly Inks Treasure Hunt Blog Hop? (Did you figure out the secret message?) I was totally blown away by everyone's FABULOUS creations!

And now I'm back with some more Tiddly Inks goodness! :) This time with another one of the new images, "You are on my mind"... to go along with this week's challenge Mother's Day with a vintage flair! I gotta admit vintage/shabby chic isn't really my thing- so I did what I thought was 'vintage' and gave it my own twist! :)
