We've been away for a long weekend to York..

A musical based on Rod Stewart songs of which they sang 35 of them!
took me a while to grasp girls sing the songs, but, thoroughly enjoyed it.
and a couple of days sight seeing...

I can't get over how gorgeous your coloring of her face and hair came out. You have a great eye for color because the flowers only enhance her face. I love the birdcage and butterflies. Thank you for joining ScrapbookerPhD's Bling Challenge.
