Yay! Karleigh Sue Birthday Blog Hop

Hi Bloggers

I have exciting news to share with you. Here at Karleigh Sue we are having Birthday Celebrations to mark our fab boss Cheri's bithday and the 1st birthday of Karleigh Sue Digi's
We have lots happening on our FaceBook Fan Group and here in blogland we are having a blog hop

The blog hop starts here on the main
and if you have followed the list you would of come to me after your visit to
where you would of seen her fab project and hopefully left her some love
So now you are here on my blog and I am sharing my project with you using my favourite image so far

I knew as soon as we were given the brief to use our favourite image of all time that, even though she is a fairly new digi, she would be my choice. Why? because she is a sassy sexy lovely larger lady. I asked Cheri if she would consider doing larger lady images as not all of us are supermodel sized and she didn't disappoint when she released this gorgeous girl
I carry a small notebook with me whenever I go out and it has lists of all the different ink pads, Stickles, Liquid Pearls, pens etc that I own and those I still need to buy. It stops me making the mistake of buying the same ones I already own, and yes I had done it a few times before I got my notebook. So I decided it needed a bit of a makeover and this is the result :)
I coloured the image with my ProMarkers, colour list below, and used scraps of blue and black card to cover the front of the book and added a dark red doily and a heart I stamped onto patterned paper. The sentiments I either made up using individual word and letter stamps or they came on a freebie stamp set with a recent magazine. 
I wanted to remind me that I am happy with who I am no matter how I look, what size I am, or whatever society deems we should look and be like.

Anyway I hope you like my project, I would love it if you leave me a comment, and lets get back to hopping. Your next port of call is
