My First ever Meljen image + The Townscrapper Challenge Sketch + Allsorts Challenge Blog Birthday challenge week 52

Good morning everyone now after much putting it of and finding many other things to do far more important I decided to clear out my craft room (long needed) and you would not believe the stash I have found, I even found images I had printed and hid for safe keeping (a little to well hid lol), this fabulous little Meljen Designs lion was amongst them, now anyone who knows me will know I don't do animals they never look right when I colour them but I had to colour him didn't I he looked so dejected poor thing. now I will have to go to Meljens and buy some more images because I love him... so I used him with this fabulous sketch from the Townscrapper challenge (I hadnt heard of this challenge before Nikki and her fabulous Daughter Zoe were on it) and as its a celebration I decided to enter it for the Allsorts Birthday challenge too...the amazing papers (how well do they go with this little lion) are by Basicgrey and from the new Max & Whiskers collection, this one is doublesided and called Clarence I bought it at Crafters and Co...I added the its your day sentiment and a selection of buttons and ribbon to match the sketch...I hope you like it and enjoy the rest of your day I'm off to do prep because I'm teaching another class on Thursday...yyyiiipppeeeee
