Its just me and my girl here today because the boys have gone camping so we are doing our nails and getting our craft on and watching lots of girly films :-) 

Miss Bella is very girly, and I don't know where she gets it from.  She loves having her face painted too.  This double layout was about a trip to Beaulieu near Halloween a couple of years ago. 
She sat sooo still and the finished result was amazing.  How can a tiger look so cute??!
I used lots of orange and harvest type colours to reflect the time of year as well as the colours in the face paints.  I also used lots of textures with buttons, felt leaves, sheer ribbon and that gorgeous canvas tag.
I think I made this layout at a Christmas retreat a couple of years ago and just never got around to sharing it on the blog.  I've still got others from around the same time that got missed and because things have been so hectic here with summer holidays and house sales falling through etc (don't ask) my poor old craft room hasn't seen much actual crafting!
This little girl is full of attitude and sass and definitely has some very tiger like qualities.  Me and my little tiger cub are going to do a lot of snuggling up together this afternoon.
What have you got planned for this weekend?  For some of you it might be last weekend before the children go back to school - is that a good or a bad thing? This summer has been a mix of good and bad but I am looking forward to getting back to some sort of routine and definitely looking forward to getting back to some regular blogging!

Bye for now
