My lo is of my DD#2 and DGD one evening whilst getting DGD ready for bed (she'll be wearing pink pyjamas when she comes!)

leaves misted with Cosmic Shimmer spray. Hearts are Martha Stewart

all the papers are from my pink scraps's great to have them in theory it is saving me a fortune!!! hahaha who am I kidding?????
Here is the sketch that inspired me:

Latest Challenge - December 2012 Sketch

I suppose they were hoping for a Christmas theme, but I just don't scrap reason, just don't!! Maybe this year will be different as Father Christmas is featuring heavily in conversations with DGD at the moment :0)

One of the magic moments of this week was DGD being asked what she would like Father Christmas to bring her and she replied 'presents would be lovely, but most of all I would like him to bring some new slippers for my Mamma (me) as she hasn't got any and if he brought them to my house I could give them to her on Christmas morning and she would be really happy and have warm feet' ...... little treasure :0)

Thanks for popping in today,
