Penny Black Makeover

The challenge on Penny Black Saturday is for Anything goes, well this little lady has been waiting to be used. It was while colouring it in we were talking about Britain got talent and I definitely feel there's a look of Susan Boyles, the round face and the unruly hair, although I do feel her makeover is a bit dated. Moving quickly on the papers are Bloom and Grow, various blooms and Quickutz swirls.

I'm trying to catch up with my Scrapbooking, I've been making layouts and although MJ has nearly every Sizzix alphabet there is, I love making titles with my Cricut so I've been collecting layouts that aren't quite finished so I've given myself a deadline. Also its MIL Birthday next week and she needs a card, I've choosen my stamp but it will take time to colour and build the image before I even start putting onto a card. I've joined a new CJ too, the book is made, just need to sort out my entry.
