Peaches


Hi Friends!
This has to be one of my favorite Mo images. I know. You hear that a lot. lol But there's just something really special about this one. I would have a hard time choosing between the Peach girl and the Lemon girl. Both are so dreamy.
Anyway!
This was my first attempt at an altered notepad. Sometimes, you know, you take such a long time coloring an image that it's almost a shame to put it on a card. So this is a nice alternative.

The artsy fartsy view:

My Recipe:
 Digi: Mo Manning. It's called "Peaches:" and can be found here.
The papers are mainly DCWV
The gorgeous ribbon, button and bakers twine can all be found at Sew Sweet Store.
The metal fancy corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts.



I would like to play along with a few challenges:

Deep Ocean Challenge -   Ribbons 
Paper Playtime -- Summer
Stamps R Us - Through the garden gate
Dream Valley Challenges - Summer theme

Thanks for visiting!

Fabulous Dorcas. You might like her in particular as she also involves using your favourite colours as well as the image itself. Fabby ribbons - they match your papers perfectly. Brilliant.

FAB-U-LOUS!! Came out fantastic! That is one of my favorite images too. Your coloring definitely makes it come to life! I love all the strips of paper and all the ribbons! Since cards are not selling great, these may sell, especially before convention. Who does not want a pretty notebook to write on all day?
