Fancy a sleepover?

Hello again everyone,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

Mine hasn't been the best, my eldest daughter suffer's from Asperger's Syndrome and i'm afraid as she is getting older things are getting worse every day - I don't usually talk about these thing on here but sometimes its good to get things out isn't it.  I wont go into to details but it looks like another visit to her specialist this week :-(

So anyway, Phoebe will be 10 at the end of August and she doesn't like parties or anything too busy so what she has asked for is a sleepover with two of her friends and a day out at the pictures with them.

I'd like to share with you the invites I made for her to send:

This is the super adorable Princess Peanelope by the super talented Krista Smith and you can purchase her here .

I used my Graph'it Markers which you can find over at Polkadoodles here.

The colours used are:

Hair: 3140,2130,2110,2105
Skin: 4170,4155,4115,4120,4135
Pink: 5120,5115
Blue: 7170,7130,7125
Green: 8120,8110

As you can see I added lots and lots of frou frou - Phoebe's orders lol.

The papers are First Edition Floral Pavillion all matted with Pink Bazzil and I added Flowers and feathers from WOC, the gems and Ribbon are by Chloe Stamps.

And finally a pic of them both together .. i must say i completely underestimated how difficult it would be to make two identical cards!

I hope you like them, I'm off now but before I do i'd like to share something i'm super excited about ....My samples are going to be shown on Create and Craft tomorrow wooo hooo! I do hope you can tune in tomorrow between 10 - 12 and watch the Craft Clinic with the Fabulous Nikky Hall!.

Night sweet peeps.
