Li'l Princess Tu-Tu

Hello everyone!  Hope you're having a great summery day!  It's hot down here in Florida in the States and I'm getting ready to take a dip in the pool.  Refreshing, I hope!  Today I want to share a cutie pop, Li'l Princess Tu-Tu,  from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection, who I have loved since the day she was created!  I can't believe I've never used her, but every time I'd start to color her up, someone would have her up on the blog or have done a gorgeous coloring of her.  But below is the story that got me to finally color her up!


Last week I was cleaning and getting ready for Allie's 5th birthday party and I had the broom out sweeping the floor.  She asked to help and I said sure (never going to turn down free labor!).  I went to get the dust pan and come back into the living room and there she is riding the broom all over the floor and telling Nanni how great of a sweep her horsey is!  I just knew that was my cue to get this baby on a card!

Isn't she just precious?  I think so!  She's colored with copics and has Stickles all over her!  I added some distressed ink around the edges and distressed the edges of all the paper and layers but you can't see them very well.  The flowers are handmade and the branches are from Martha Stewart's punch.  I added some cheese cloth and pearls and the papers are some gorgeous, fun older papers from a Debbie Mumm collection.  I love them and have been hording them forever!


Here's a closer view of some of the papers. Cute, aren't they?



 Hope you enjoy her as much as I loved coloring her.



Hope everyone is able to stay cool or at least comfortable!  I'll be back tomorrow with another fun project for Sassy Studio Designs and then Friday, we are presenting another sweet digi for Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection!  Oh, I can't wait to show her off to you!

Susan, you did a great job.. I love that it's a cowgirl and her pony... so often you see boys with their ponies.
