Here's a close-up of my creation this week for The TownScrapper.  Pop on over to see our talented DT's wonderful creations and be sure to visit all of the DT's blogs to find out which ones are offering blog candy to celebrate our summer hiatus.  We will be spending some quality time with family and re-energizing our mojo for our return on Friday, September 10.

Papers and the Baking Tilda with Wooden Spoon stamp were purchased from Phebe at The TownScrapper.  I just love this Tilda as she is so versatile and can be used for a number of different occasions.  I coloured Tilda with my Copics and used a fair amount of blender pen to distress the ink and give Tilda a more vintagey soft look.   Ribbon and pearls are from my stash.  Flowers are a mix from Dollarama and Prima.  Ooooh and those gorgeous pins were a gift from my very talented and crafty friend Zoe, who happens to have opened up an awesome online store.  Check out her wonderful products BUT I warn you, be prepared to be amazed.
