Saturated Canary Challenge DT Creation - My 'Lovely' Daughter

Hi everyone how are you all? Guess what..........yep I'm late yet again..........shocker eh lol!!
Well today I have a happy reason for being late its my daughters 21st Birthday..........I know 21 I cant believe it. It was 21 years ago I was told the devastating news about my daughter being so brain damaged & so ill that she would only survive a few weeks at the most.................yep that same girl celebrated being 21 today, how totally awesome is she!!! I am so utterly proud of this girl.......oops sorry lady now isn't she...........ssshhhh dont tell her ;0)

Anyway this fortnight we have a special challenge over at Saturated Canary Challenges & the theme is...........
'SHOW US YOUR LOVELY'
.........which basically means its an 'Anything Goes' challenge using the latest new image 'Lovely' which is on special sale right now & boy oh boy is she lovely!!!!!!!!
I've made my daughter a picture for her new bedroom.................
This is the beautiful 'Lovely' & so is my Natalie............she may not able to say 'I love you mam' but her smile says 'I LOVE YOU MUM!!!'

Her new bedroom is going to be Shabby Chic & we are putting twinkling lights in her ceiling as she loves music & lights & her tv of course lol.

The top corner is the new Magnolia 'Butterfly' die & I HAD to have this with some of the new stamps....yes which I've still not played with yet & they arrived on Saturday :0(
Think this may become my favourite butterfly die.............ever!!!

The paper I've used is the gorgeous new Vintage Spring Maja Design '4th May' paper, I lurve Maja Design the quality is excellent!!!!!!!!!

I printed 'Lovely' out onto stamping linen in A5 size & coloured her with copics.
E11, E21, E00, E000 - Skin
E29, E27, E25, E21 - Hair
C3, C1, C00 - Dress
R85, R83, R81, RV10 - Dress
R59, R29, R17 - Rose

I've took a photo with a black background as well to try show it up better lol.
Have you seen the gorgeous cute little 'Shabby Chic Angel' in the top corner by the flowers..........these are lush & of course my angel deserves a little angel ;0)

The flowers are from WOC & the small 'Butterfly' is from Etsy. Everything also got sprayed with Spray 'n' shine.

Ok I have a quick update on Megan. Well thankfully she doesn't have an infection & Arjay is still in his mummy safe. She was back for another scan yesterday & his chest is still small & she only has now 7ml of fluid surrounding him :0( So she has to go back the hospital on monday for another scan & discuss things with her consultant. She is in a lot of discomfort bless her but our Arjay is a tough little fella ;0)


Also there is a fabby sale over at Crafts & Me with 50% off certain items..........you gotta go shop with offers like that!!!

Thank you sooooooooo much for your lovely comments & all your prayers for little Arjay, yu have no idea how much it all means to us. 
Squishy hugs & funky love to all mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxx
