A birthday card for my D-i-L

It's my Daughter -in-Law's birthday today and she wants to get into scrap-booking. I'm glad, 'coz my granddaughter is a little smasher and a scrap book will be wonderful. So, I bought her her first scrap book for her birthday and Pam, my best bud and I, have given her loads of 12x12 papers to start her off.

Here's a photo of Teigan having a 'picnic'. It will make a lovely scrapbook page.

and the card for Vicki.

I coloured my gorgeous image with Copics as per usual! lol
She is called 'Little Rapunzel' and is a digi image by Elisabeth Bell.
You can find her HERE.
I'm still learning to colour hair and although it's far from perfect, I'm quite pleased with it.
The paper is a snippet of the DCWV Linen Closet on a base of Kraft CS.
(That stuff is as rare as hen's teeth 'over here)!!
The die cut circle is a Nestie, but you all knew that didn't you.
The gorgeous pearly swirl is from Peachy Keen! Yep! PK are stocking some AMAZING accessories now.
Go check 'em out HERE! (Click on 'supplies', after you've ogled all the new cool stamps). 
The sentiment is from Papermania.
Well, I hope you are having a peaceful and Happy Easter. 'Till next time.......

Your grand daughter is ADORABLE. And your daughter in law will be lucky to have you to help her on her new papercrafting journey. I love the card. So beautiful! Hugs- Glora

Your granddaughter is indeed adorable and the photo definitely will make an awesome scrapbook layout. Hurrah that DIL wants to scrap.

Your card is so, so cute. I love all that blue. Your colouring rocks. For the life of me I can't affix swirls like you can. When I pull them off the paper to adhere them on, they turn into a muck.

Happy Easter.

Love Beth
