BOYS ... {Color It Create It Show It Off August 2017 Challenge}

{BOYS ...}

Can you believe it is already the month of August.  Its been a cold winter here in Johannesburg!
Our theme over at
My Besties
Colour It! Create It! Show It Off! Challenge

Here is my design team project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this super adorable BESTIES BOY from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.

I have coloured this cute boy in Photoshop CS3.
The folded flower has been created with squares.
The brad, buttons and design papers are from my stash.

The sentiment is from
Paulette {Create with TLC}.
