Lolita and great news for me anyway :)

Some of you may already know but I WON SATURATED CANARY's recent challenge and was delighted to choose Lolita and Thank You as my fabbie prize - also have you seen Krista's delicious new digis here?  Needless to say they have crept into my basket overnight - how strange to jump in all by themselves he he!!

Also I have to tell you that FINALLY I made the Top 5 at Passion for Promarkers - thanks so much girls and I will display my badge with much pride.

Anyhow, I coloured her with my PMs and immediately fell head over heels in love - reminds me of myself about 30 years ago (gawd I am showing my age here my friends)  I spent my time shoeless with long curly hair and skirts down to the ground - mmmmm lovely time I had.

And I finally found the dies I bought months ago with leaves and flowers - had a blond moment when I unpacked them and put them somewhere 'safe'.
The close up shows just how talented Krista is and if you have yet to discover her work and her beautiful blog then do go visit her very soon.
