Lili Of The Valley GDT - Basket Of Roses Cotton Reel

Good morning peeps,
This month I have the huge honor of being a guest designer for Lili Of The Valley and joining those super talented ladies on the LOTV's Ideas To Inspire blog.
I was thrillled when Anne emailed and invited me to join them during October, but I have to admit a bit nervous too.

For my first GDT creation I have made a little cotton reel.
  Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - Papermania, Beautiful
Flowers - Hobbycraft, Kort & Godt, Hooked On Craft, Wild Orchid & handmade
Pearls - Hero Arts 5mm & 3mm
Pins - homemade
Swirl branch & Lace - The Ribbon Girl
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R20, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes - C3, C1, C00 / BV01, BV00, BV0000, basket - E57, E55, E53, E51, roses - YG67, YG63 / V17, V15, V12 / V25, V22, V20, butterflies - V09, V06, V04 / V93, V91
I'm entering my cotton reel in the following challenges -
Make It Monday - anything goes, Inspire Me Friday - anything goes
Please hop over to the Ideas To Inspire blog and visit the lovely ladies over there, & if you haven't seen already the gorgeous Geisha Girls have now been released for sale :)

I'm off to catch up with hundreds of DT comments, it literally is hundreds too so that's lots of typing but a whole lot of looking at gorgeous blogs too so all in all it's not a bad way to spend a few hours.
When I've caught up with myself I will check through my candy entries and delete any duplicate entries before making the draw, in the meantime there is still time to enter my mini candy to win Celebration Tilda, if you missed my STAMPtember post & code to claim 25% off all Magnolia products until tomorrow it is here
