Oh to be 13 again!

Wednesday, 12 August 2009
My cousin, Hayley, turns 13 next Thursday and that makes me feel old! I can remember holding her when she was 4 days old and her mum and dad still hadn't decided on her name (think they were trying out Leah then which is her middle name!) Anyway, what better image to use than a Miss Anya! I've had these stamps for a while and am ashamed to admit that this is the first time that I have inked her up!

I had a couple of nightmares colouring the image where the colours were desperate to come outside the image, so please don't look too carefully!

Stamps: Miss Anya - The Greeting Farm; Inks: Memento TB & Copics;
CS & DP: Pink Passion & Tempting Turquoise - Stampin Up! & Chit Chat - Sweet Shoppe Designs;
Tools: Swiss Dots CB Folder; Embellishments: Gems - Papermania
It's quite a bright card, but I thought it was perfect for teens, what do you think? I was inspired to look at Sweet Shoppe Designs by Stacey who has used their papers on a number of her fabulous creations! I purchased a couple but this is the first time that I've been brave enough to use them. I hope Hayley likes it!
I hope you all have a lovely day and thanks again for stopping by and any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.
