Hello everyone!:)
Today I took some time to just play!

No limit to follow, and that's what I needed today;)
I just love this image from Make it Crafty!:) It's so much fun color her in!.
A couple weeks ago and finally got her colored up!
I am not a big fan of colouring hair, (because I'm still in my" first practice period" with Copic's), but on this one..I took a nose dive into it!!:)

 (and  look..sooo much hair!!!) LOL
                               Anyways I got this image called "Zoe celebrate"  , and she's perfect for a
