Good morning guys.
I sure hope your weekend it off to a good start. I have a few errands to run this morning then I will have the rest of the day to do whatever I want to do... That is of course until my kids decide what I am going to be doing. heehee
Have you guys been over to the Color Me Copic blog lately? If not be sure to check them out. All of those girls are so talented and they share all of their ideas and techniques. You will just love it. This week Amy Young has put together a video tutorial on how she colors curly hair...WOW, is it a great video and I just had to try it out. On top of all of their talent sharing they are (along with All That Scraps.) also giving away a couple of stamps to two different people that play along with the challenge this week. As if that is not enough the stamps are from Amy's Sweet November Stamps. We are talking new stamps that are not even out yet....Can you think of a better reason to head over? I sure can't...
I sure had fun giving this a go. I used the CC Friday from TFG because she has the best hair. Then I decided that she would look adorable with a skirt on so she is paired up with CC Monday's body. I have to say that I really am quite please with her. Of course she is not as good as Amy's but I will keep practicing. I used basically the same colors that Amy's used in the tutorial just to get used to the technique then I intend to branch out from there. Thanks so much for the great ideas girls. You are all just fantastic.
Well, I am going to get a move on so that I can enjoy the rest of my weekend. I hope you all have a great one too. Talk at you later...Lisa G
