    Guest Designer Wednesday - Laura Davidson

    I am truly blessed with wonderful friends that are also my Guest Designers – today, I have the very very talented Laura Davidson of Laura Lee's Dream.  

    Hi Everyone... happy wednesday! Today I am guest designing and we are doing projects about school.

    The colours Lynne asked us to use are white, yellow, red and brown.


    I found this digi online but I can't find the place where I found it.. I usually add the name to the digi but I guess not this time.
    I coloured it with copics. I am still learning how to shade. I thought this was different..
    Hope you like it...
