Hello my lovelies :)
I really hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Zoe has had the last two weeks off due to school holidays but she will be going back on Tuesday. It has been wonderful having her at home but I just wish I was able to do something more special with her. I would really like to take her away for a weekend but it's just not possible right now. However we did go out for a little retail therapy together yesterday at Erina. We spent too much money but it was worth it. I got a few crafty bits & pieces for my new Smash Book (which will be having it's own blog post lol). Zoe got a few new clothes so she is happy :)
Today is the day for a new My Besties challenge.
This time the challenge is 'Too cute to spook'.
There are 5 digis up for grabs to win so I hope you will join us :)
Due to DDCC going live with its first challenge just a few days ago (which you can find here) I have been inundated with heaps to do there & I only had a few hours in which to design something quick for the My Besties challenge. I went & ventured into my Pinterest boards to find some inspiration that would allow me to create something in a flash so it would be ready in time :)
I quickly coloured up my image (which I know isn't my best colouring) & began to create a cute little Post It Note Holder. This is the first time that I have tried my hand at this & I was amazed with how quickly it all came together.
You can find the Bestie image here.
I used the following Copic colours:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20
Hair: E21, 25, 29
Bow & Pumkin: YR00, 02, 04, 07
Dress: Y00, 02, 06, 08
Witches Hat: C0, 01, 03, 05, 07
Want to pin the Copic colour combo?
All of the DP's are from my scrap stash which I am so glad that I was able to use. The flower buttons were also from my 'oldies' stash.
Of course I added some pearls :)
This design holds the post-it notes beautifully :)
I had a little bit of a hard time deciding which ribbon I should use & ended up settling on the gorgeous black one. This design measures 4 x 4 inches & easily fits into a handbag.
I'm thinking of creating one for myself so that I can use it for jotting down all my Smash Book ideas as I think of them. Then I can just simply stick the note onto my Smashie page & that way all my thoughts will be there ready & waiting for when it comes time to Smash the page properly :)
Very handy to have I reckon :)
