Mystery - Solved

Gael was our hostess this round, and I must admit that I colored up the images as soon as I received them!

This little girl reminds me so much of me as a pre-teen!  I always had a book in my hand and read whenever and wherever I could!  My mother always made me wear shoes though - probably why I only wear them when I must now!!

Images from ARTful Inkables Think Big set
Sentiment from SU
Colored with Copics and a gel pen
Flower is Prima with the center punched from ColorBok glitter paper using SU punch and a cool brad from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by!
