September Calendar a day late...

Not because I forgot but because I'm lazy!!  This weeks Bloggabella theme was back to school and when I saw my calendar I realized I had the perfect image ready & hubby had his 2nd week of vacation this week so if I had something already created....



Betty the Bookworm from the sweet Green Bean Baby line is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with copics. I wanted to give her that tie died look (love those shirts from Lucky Jeans) so I coloured the shirt then removed coloured using my blender pen.  I used a clear glaze pen for the lenses on her glasses and on the frames I used an orange atyou spica pen.  I also used a black atyou spica pen on the hairbands polka dots.

Please stop by Bloggabella  to see the rest of the creations by the babes and the sistahs & remember to leave a comment for a chance to win some bella bucks!!  Next weeks theme is animals - use them in your image, paper, embellishment whatever works for you!  Email your card to Em by Thursday to be included

Thanks for stopping by have a great Labour Day weekend!!
