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!

Citrus anyone?

Happy Friday! It's time to launch another challenge over at Graph It colouring challenge and I'm here to share my DT make. Pop over, say Hi, join in, become a follower and enjoy!

I do love being challenged with my colouring, and sometimes a theme makes me realise that while I have a good number of Graph Its I don't have a full collection. Good enough excuse to buy more?!! Oranges and Lemons/Yellows aren't my thing. I do have some yellows but found I only have one orange. But worry not - I used my warm browns to add the tones and shadows! 

So the image is from Candy Doodles Collection from Polkadoodles. I layered the image on a mix of orange and yellow card, I cut around the image to create a different shape and then I added a couple of brads, sentiment and some washi tape.
The Graph It's I used are - 
Skin = 4120, 4115, 4155, 3120 & 4135
Hair = 3120, 3125, 3150, 3170 & 3190
Jeans = 9100, 9102, 9103, 9105 & 7180
Yellows = 1130, 1150 & 2120
Oranges = 1250, 2170, 3130 & 3170
Background = Neutral greys

Here's some close ups - 

Isn't she lovely? Perfect for any age group I think. 

I'm entering this into the following challenges - 

Take care Zo xx
