You Are Amazing - Tilda Scrapbooking Border

Hi to my amazing blog followers :)
It is the middle of the week with not much going on in my little part of the world.  It has been quite cold here with a few patches of rain over the last couple of days but it has been a perfect excuse to sit in my craft studio & have some quiet time with Tilda :)

Actually today, I went & saw a lovely lady named Miranda in regards to me doing the Business Cert. IV course.  I have had a lot of business experience since the year 2000 with having my own small scrapbooking company (well, I say small but I had over 125 ladies working for me worldwide) but never did I have a certificate behind me.  I have many plans for the next 5 years & to have that certificate will just give me that extra added little bit of support :)

So, Miranda is setting me up to do the course, which will be 12 months study but the great thing about it is that I can do it from home (office) via the internet :)  Which means I will still be able to do my crafting & be home for Zoe.  Works well for me :)  I just have to wait till I have been enrolled.  I am excited but nervous at the same time lol.  Maybe Tilda can blow some magic dust my way lol.

This time I decided to make another Scrapbooking pre-made border but I wanted to make her sparkle a little bit so I added some Stardust Stickles here & there.

I coloured Tilda in the following Copic colours:

Skin: E000, 00, 11, 21, R20
Hair: E43, 50, 53, 57
Top: R81, 85, RV10
Pants: G21, 94, 99

Want to pin the Copic colour combo?

I wish I could get the settings on my camera right as the photo's look a bit washed out.  In actual fact, I am hoping to purchase a new camera next month cos' the one I have right now is only 5 pixels.  I saw one in the local catalogue the other week that was 20 pixels! my camera old or what? lol  The trouble is I didn't make note of the brand & can't remember which one it was lol.  Typical.

What sort of camera do you have?  Can you recommend one?

I used a really nice lace & ribbon on this design which I got from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I'm not too sure what the names are due to them coming in one of their monthly ribbon club assortment packs.  

I was a member for a while & received a different pack each month which was always a lovely surprise to receive in the mailbox :)  I highly suggest it.  I only stopped my subscription as after 12 months I have ended up with a lot of ribbon lol.  Maybe I will start it up again soon :)

I popped up this design to give it a little bit more dimension & went a little crazy with the pearls but I love the way it turned out.  I only wish the photo's did it more justice.  I will try taking the photo's again tomorrow & hopefully they will look a little bit better.

If you would like to pin this design to your Pinterest board:

This is positively breathtaking! I love Tilda, especially the way YOU colored her and gave her some sparkle. Your lace border punch, crochet trim, and doily all work so well together as well as the pearls; so pretty and feminine.

Good luck with your course work!
