Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
We are taking our laddo out today to spend his Birthday & Christmas pennies and i also have a nice money off coupon for the Bodyshop & Yankee Candles so will be having a little treat too :D
Thank you all so much for your comments on my coloured image yesterday.
I was asked which pencil i used for her skin and it was Baked Earth.
