Boys and Girls Come Out To Play

Hi Folks
Hope things are okay with you all.  I have a busy day today as I am going with my daughter to have the alterations fitting for her wedding dress.  It is a few months since we bought the dress so will be lovely to see her in it again.  The wedding is getting all too near now with less than 3 months to go.  Very exciting.

Anyway, as it's Wednesday it's time for a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Boys and girls come out to play
We would like to see either a boy or a girl image on your project.  Or if you are feeling adventurous why not use both.

Our super sponsors this week are:
Lacy Sunshine - prize of a $20 gift certificate to the store
Imagine That - prize of a $10 gift certificate to the store

Here is my inspiration project using an image from Lacy Sunshine.  As you can see I decided to have an image with a boy and a girl.

I coloured the image using my promarkers before mounting onto a doily.  The papers are from a paper pack from Kraftyhands.  I mounted onto kraft card after distressing all the edges with my distress tool.  Some ribbon, roses, a bow, parchment butterfly and pearls finished the project.  Quite a vintage feel to it I think.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries into our challenge.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the super inspiration projects from my talented teamies.
