Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Paris & Louboutins!

Morning!

It's Tuesday so that means it's time for Digi Choosday - Polkadoodles to launch another challenge and that means I'm here to share my DT make with you all!

So the DT were challenged to do 'Shopaholics' - I instantly thought of my time in Paris (2011) & for me, the ultimate shoe choice (though I confess they are not mine, I merely got to try them on!). I used this fabulous digi from the Dollie Daydream Girl Talk collection as a main image on this Smash Book double page spread. I coloured the image with Graph It markers which I also used to create the dotty background behind her. I added journaling, a postcard and photos to document my memories. I often use digi images on different projects as I reckon they add personality!

I bought the postcard in Paris, and you may ask why I linked the two? Well not only is Paris known for the designer shops on the Champs Elysee, but inside the Louboutins it says Paris! I didn't know that until I tried these on. Now no Zoe was harmed during this shoe fitting I must add. I stayed sat down at all times!! Could you imagine me trying to walk in these.......nope, didn't think so!

Here's some close ups - 




I used a number of pens, mainly neutral greys to create this dotted background. It took ages, but I reckon it was worth it as I think it looks fab. I also added some sparkle and white pen too.

So there you go - something different to do with a digi image. Don't forget to pop by the blog and also our Facebook page. The DT are always popping in and it's a good place to find out what's going on with all the latest digi images.

Take care Zo xx

Zowie! I love the dotted background. It looks like it was a lot of work to create, but oh, so worth it! What a great journal layout, so fun and brings back great memories. When I first saw the photos I was terribly impressed that you could walk in those. Now I know the secret!!!
