Make A Wish

Hi everyone,
Wow, it's been quite some time since my last post!
Alot has happened in the last month or so, but I'm in a better place :)

The court case date is still yet to be decided upon, so I'm sitting patiently waiting in hopes that this will all be over soon.  I found things quite hard to deal with so my partner (who by the way has a new job Woo Hoo) made the decision that we would go away for a while to Port Stephens so that I could get away from it all. 

We found that other people were pushing their own life problems onto us & right now, I just need to be a little selfish & concentrate on my own problems & get better.  We are staying in a lovely 2 bedroom apartment with water views & have been here for 2 weeks so far, with no intention of going back just yet. 

My partner is wonderful.  Now that he has his job (which he got before we left) he is having to travel 2 hours each way, each day, just to get there & back from work.  He is determined that we stay here till things settle down.  I don't know what I'd do without him.  He is great support :)

Anyway, needless to say, I brought all of my crafting gear with me, including my laptop & printer lol.  I gotta keep busy whilst he is at work..not only that, I love creating my designs & i'm totally addicted lol :) 

Today I created Make A Wish Tilda.  I hope you like it :)

I used Copics to colour, ribbons, beads, Prima flowers, puches & Stickles to give it some sparkle.
Of course, I have entered this one into the following challenges:

Midnight Madness #MMSC64 - Sketch

Totally Tilda #1 - Chocolate Theme
Wild Orchid #2 - Lovely Lace
Creative Inspirations #39 - Anything Goes
Totally Stampalicious # - Birthday
Creatalicious #12 - 3D
