This is my very first Canvas LO!

The frosting or froth on the beer is overflowing with white glitter.

Lasting Memories #170

Good Morning!!!
WOW!!! I can't believe it's 10 more days until Christmas!
Lasting Memories has a new challenge for us this week. It's called 'I'm Charmed'Add a charm to your LO, so I made my own!

My digi's name is Heather Valentin's 'Twinkle Boo' from Lacy Sunshine.
I printed my digi out on Shrinky Dinks. She was a 4x6 size. What I did was colored her digitally and printed her and then cut her out but you gotta be real careful cuz I don't think the ink ever dry's since it's on plastic paper. B4 I shrunk her, I used my crop-a-dile to make a hole for a charm.
Isn't she ADORABLE?! My journaling says Artist Heather from Lacy Sunshine Stamps drew her for me THRILLED TO PIECES! I read her Angel Policy  but for some reason it just wasn't sinking in! LOL! (but I think it was a good thing so 'Twinkle Boo' could be born) I used the PNG and added her to my pic, printed and then colored her with prisma colored pencils. I found these cutsie little buttons for her pajamas in my stash and I added stickles to the stars. The lattice is a diecut from SU.
