Bright Colours @ Oldie But A Goodie

A jolly good morning to you all, I'm here today to help brighten things up with a fab new challenge at


and this week Francesca wants to see some

Bright Colours

So that's nice and easy for us all,
here is what I came up with

Using the fabulous Mo Manning Housework Fairy (God could we all do with one of these!) Papers are Echo Park from the summer before last I think? Coloured with Copics. No sentiment yet as I couldn't come up with anything witty enough but I'm still trying!!

Pop over to the main challenge blog for all the details, news on the prize and some bright and cheerful inspiration from my lovely teammies.

Remember to be in with a chance of winning the prize you must use something at least 6 months old and tell us what it is in your post.

I'm off to do some housework, feeling a little guilty watching madam here doing all the work!!

Thank you for stopping by
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
