Happy New Year!

Morning all!  Hope you all had a great new year!  I went to bed with a headache and hadn't even touched a drop of alcohol lol!  Had a nice NYE playing on the Wii with my lad, we were doing Just Dance and he was slaughtering me until I held the remote properly and got some points for my efforts!  Should have got one of these ages ago as its really nice for the family to play each other instead of going off and doing individual things, the kids are playing cycling racing against each other at the moment :)  We all registered on the wii fit yesterday and it thinks I'm fat and old haha!  Need to lose a bit of weight me thinks, I'm not massive but a few pounds off wouldnt hurt.

Well this is my first post of the year with many more to come!  I've chosen a lovely little image by Di's Digi Downloads called Fairy & Bear, I do like this character range, very sweet.  I got some new papers the other day and chose a papermania stack which is pink so you'll be seeing lots of pink on here lol!  The large flower is also papermana from a co-ordinating range which I cut in half and added a die cut of vellum swirl.  I've coloured the image with promarkers and used a muted pink flexmarker to blend.  The pink promarkers I used for the dress were rose pink and antique pink with chestnut, umber, tan and pastel yellow for the hair, ivory, blush, soft peach and coral for the face and cinnamon, buttercup and ivory for the bear.

Would like to enter into...
