Life is full of Ups & Downs ...

Where is the time going the summer holidays are nearly over!!! Really need to start sorting Holly out ready to go back to school. Yes I always leave it to the last minute. (Have purchased new shoes...) Well here is my take on this weeks sketch at icsketches.

I have used the following:

Stamp - Sugar Nellie Manga Girl # 2,The Greeting Farm - Whimsical Wishes (sentiment)
Papers are from stash
Coloured using Promarkers
Flower - star punch from Stampin Up (several layers damped paper and scrunched)

Thank you for taking the time to look.

Hi Nicky

A lovely creation.

I blew your photo up so I could read the sentiment .. .. it is beautiful .. .. as is your colouring of that fab image.

We always left buying new school stuff until towards the end of the holidays as my lads always seemed to "shoot up" during the summer and their trousers would be up their ankles before they went back!!!

Shame the holidays fly by so quickly (though not all may agree LOL!!).

Love Jules xx
