A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Ch #14 Lacy Sunshine - Your Favourite Things

Good Morning lovely peeps!  It's that time again .... Challenge #14 is now up and running over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge and we have a few slight changes.  Firstly, our challenge is no longer Anything Goes.  We have gone back to good old themes again and our theme for this next fortnight is
A nice easy peasy one to get us all started - your image MUST be hand coloured, then use your favourite things on your creation and list them in your entry.  We have also started a 'Loyalty Program' for Challenge Digis and more info can be found on the Challenge Blog

Our Winner/Top 3/GDT of Challenge #13 have been announced so you might want to head on over to see who the lucky ones are HERE

For this challenge we got to choose one our favourite Lacy Sunshine digis to use ..... well ... erm ... hum .... bit of a difficult one for me as I love ALL of them.  There's so many wonderful characters to choose from and if you head on over to The Lacy Sunshine Store you'll see EXACTLY what I mean!

I chose to create a little sweet tub with Bubbles Galore.  I've had her for a little while now and just never got the chance to colour her up!  She's super adorable with her gorgeous curls, fabulous hat (I want one) and surrounded by delicious sweets (I need some) ... LOL!

Isn't she adorable?  
Bubbles is coloured with Copics in the following:

Skin:  E000, E00, E11   Turquoise:  B000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Purple:  BV02, BV08, BV13, BV31    Pink:  V000, V91, V95

The little doily she sits on has been completely coated with glitter giving off a fab, shimmery effect .... although you can't quite see that effect here LOL

The beautiful papers are Bonnets & Bowties, which you can get from LOTV.  The bow is a product of me playing about with ribbon and coming up with this :)

Other ingredients used for my little sweet box:

Flat backed flower pearls/Flowers - WOC
Rhinestone Button - The Hobby House
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
Doily/Pearls/Glitter/Ribbon - from stash
