Join us for holiday fun at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all

It's time for team A to share their creations with you over at The Paper Shelter 

and this weeks challenge theme is a very topical one

Holiday fun

Now I'm sure this can cause some confusion for our friends further west in the world!

Here in England - holidays means summer holidays 
in America - the Holidays means the Christmas season
Its just one of those things that comes from speaking the same language
 - but not meaning the same thing at all!! 

Anyway back to our "holiday" challenge
this cute little girl dragging her case behind her is going on her summer holidays
but i suppose she could also be going home for the holidays - both bases covered lol

She is called Bon Voyage and is available here

as always there is a fab prize offered to our challenge winner 
so what are you waiting for - we'd love to see your entries

Challenge prize badge

I decided to go a little bit shabby chic with this one 
- just to tone down the bright colours a little bit- I like the effect

Here's what I did...

Image- Bon voyage from The Paper Shelter
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Papers - Dolled up from MME
Ribbon and lace - scraps from my stash
Pearls - bought on ebay
butterfly - Whimsy stamps
tag and twine - MFT (traditional tag stax)
Sentiment - LOTV

I'll be back later with my DT card for Penny's Paper Crafty- see you then!

Challenges I'm entering with this card

Crafters cafe - Birthdays
Creative moments - anything goes / use 1 flower
Handmade harbour - summer fun (for me going away on holiday!)
little red wagon - vacation
