Strawberry Girl

Nothing says summer like strawberries , especially freshly picked from the garden , mine are nowhere near ready to eat but they are in flower.
This image from mo manning called "strawberry girl " is adorable , I coloured with my pro and flex markers using a scalloped oval punch to give a cloudy sky effect.
The papers are strawberry hill digi's from Raspberry road. I've machine stitched the edges , added mesh from my local craft shop , a ribbon free gift with a card mag and a pink strawberry button from a buttons gallor set.
We have finished the bedroom and done a shabby chic effect of the old pine bedside tables. I have took a few pics if you fancy a nose.
The weather has been nice this week, we walked along the river in Chester yesterday , gaping at the beautiful houses lining the Dee and watching the rowers. Nice glass of real ale in the Boat House pub, we sat in seats in a kind of beach hut, very cute .
We are leaving shortly for Llangoland , in North Wales , gorgeous place with a great craft shop.
