Happy Birthday... to me!!


It's my Birthday today, shhh, don't tell anyone but it's the big four-zero for me!  Yikes, how did that happen, in my head I'm still about 23/24, but my body is telling me differently... dear me, I put my neck out at the weekend and spent most of Saturday looking like a Thunderbird puppet :-D

Anyhoo.... it was my turn to choose the challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink this time and I just had to pick 


It doesn'thave to be a special one, but any birthday you like!

I was lucky enough to use Billie is 8 - Tutu Billie for this challenge

Isn't she great?  I've no idea why but my printer decided to throw a MEGA strop and it bled out the minute I started colouring.  No idea why!  Maybe because I grabbed the sheet straight from the printer, rather than doing my usual and having a dither for a day or two!  LOL, I got round this by using all four of the images and layering them up decoupage style.  Which worked for me!

Anyway, that's enough from me, I've birthday pressies to open!  Not going to have a good night tonight though as it is the open evening for the school which my eldest is going to in September, just what I need on my birthday, sitting in a school hall, listening to my old head of sixth-form (who's now the head at my son's new school), still HB has got me (read us!) for the Goodwood Festival of Speed next weekend, it's somewhere I've never been, but always wanted to go... oooh and tickets for the Revival Festival too... I just need to find my outfit for that one!

Have a great day!
