'Hidden Treasures'

Today's post is late, I was waiting for my sand (glue) to dry. then Katie wanted to go shopping for make-up & clothes the same as every teenager does...but she wanted me to go with her! The downside to this is I always end up spending on her & she goes home with the same amount of money she left the house with....crafty madam!! Then when we got back I realized I hadn't taken my meds, so decided to have a snooze to give them a chance to work. Well that was at 2pm....its now 6pm oops.....all Nico's fault he decided he wanted snuggles so ended up having skunky snuggles for an extra hour as well lol.....
Anyhoos enough of that, here's why I am here.

Today's challenge over at My Time To Craft is a fab sketch, made by DT member Jo (thanks hunnie)
You can find the sketch here....or at the end of my post.
I thought I'd use yet another image I have had for ages & never used, to be honest it scared me! The thought of colouring it all in & getting it all to how I want....scared the **** outta me !!
Glad I gave it a go tho xx

She is just beautiful. So glad you can see the sand, I did wonder when I did it.
Sand pinch from Freddie's viv ...our leopard gecko heehee!!
