I have fiddled with my photo editor for a half hour trying to get the photos to look like they should!  Taken this evening, my photos are so dark.  When I tried to lighten them, it washed out the bright colors.  The base cardstock is Pacific Point with YoYo Yellow in the center, so you know it's really BRIGHT and cheery in real life!  :)

This adorable image is one that I downloaded from Heather Ellis on Etsy.  I've seen so many wonderful creations with these Pure Innocence sweeties that I simply could not resist any longer!  I've colored with copic markers and as you can see I'm still learning.  I wanted to do some shading around her, but left well enough alone for now.  Do you know of anyone that does online Copic classes?  If so, please let me know!

I worked late today so this evening has really gotten away from me. Time flies when you're having fun and stamping is such FUN, isn't it?  Have a wonderful week and do stop back again soon, ok?   Oh, I want to give a shout out to Debbie, Gail, Dona, Jason and all of you dear friends who are preparing for graduation celebrations this weekend.  Don't stress too much, ok?  Just ENJOY the occasion!   :)  I'll be thinking of you!

Happy Stamping & Smiles 2 U!
