Japanese Girl

Hiya, another piece of good news, I'm here this morning with my first post as DT for Creative Craft Cottage

Our theme is 'Eileen's Challenge - Anything Goes'. This is our special challenge dedicated to the original owner of this challenge blog who sadly passed away after a brave fight with Cancer. The DT have added a Lavender ribbon or bow to our projects as that is the general colour for Cancer. Please feel free to add this to your project, but this is not an entry requirement.

Sponsoring us is the fab Lemon Shortbread. Their image I'm using is the gorgeous Kimono Japanese Girl and here is what I created:-
