Crafty Monkeys - Isabelle

Here's my 8 year-old Isabelle's submission to the Crafty Monkeys Challenge. She was ultra excited about making this card and submitting it to Hannah and Zoe. I even let her use 2 of my Copics for the skin colour as she was very upset her "baby" markers - Crayolas - as she calls them, did not have anything suitable - lol. Couldn't fault her logic here so she was ooooh so pleased she got to use a few of her mommy's "big girl" markers for colouring.

Isabelle's card captures what she loves to do most over the summer besides swimming and catching butterflies; that is going barefoot and picking flowers. She's my girlie girl who loves everything bling so she added some sparkly glue to Tilda's wings and of course added the sparkly flower charm she found at the bottom of the pool as an embellishment - her treasure.

I'm so very proud of her layout. She came up with it all by herself. Isn't it great! I was awed at her creativity. As a bonus, I let her take the picture with the digital camera. It was worth it to see her big smile and giggles of excitement.

Thanks for visiting.
