Prima - Sweet Girl

There's and awesome sketch over at Prima and I just couldn't resist playing along this month.  I think I may have to use this sketch again, it truly is a beauty.
Here's my interpretation.  This is my sweet little girl when she was six years old, she's still a sweet person with a big heart, she turns 37 next week.

Lets Get Shabby - The Secret Seven

The challenge at Lets Get Shabby was to create a layout drawing inspiration from the front cover of a favourite book from your childhood or even a current book.  Here's mine:
Oooops! got a bit of flashing on the photo.

I took inspiration from the brickwork on the front cover, I punched out my bricks from a Dusty Attic Chipboard piece, covered them with texture paste coloured with paint and then brushed them with Distress Ink before painting a crackle medium over the top.
I've also used flowers from Manor House Creations and Prima Marketing.  The key (cut in half) is from Kaisercraft.
