Glitz and Glam at An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning.
Hope you are all keeping well and those not I wish well soon.
We had a little light dusting of snow overnight and I hope that's all we get today as Jack is at school and John is working in Birmingham today - hope neither get snowed out!!!

It's very quiet in my house today as my scrummilicious Lola Arizona has now gone home :o(
I guess the only positive to take from that is I can get back into my little crafty haven and have a good play :o)

This is my busy DT week - I have something to share with you everyday - and tomorrow I have some exciting news - watch this space lol!!!!

So today I'm here to share my DT project for

Here's what I did:

I've had this image for such a long time and this is her first colouring :o)
