Hallowe'en Spa

I actually finally found some time to craft just for fun this week. I have been going into school every day to set up my classroom and it is still not yet finished. I have book trays to label, a couple more bits to add to a reading display, have a big tidy up and if there is any more time left around the training we have to do on Monday and Tuesday, then I can start to label up the kids exercise books! And people think teachers don't do anything during their holidays!

Anyway Sherri Baldy was having a colouring competition on her Facebook page and I loved the images you had to use for it, so I sat down yesterday and coloured up Hallowe'en Spa and today turned her into a card! I haven't used a My Besties image for ages; being on a DT for a long time where we were banned from doing so, meant I couldn't or I would have been chucked off the DT! But now I have left that team I can do whatever I want! (Really I should have done that anyway instead of being dictated to, but I felt privileged to be asked onto the team, so stuck to the rules!)

And here she is! Boy my pens worked hard on this one and so many of them ran out and with no reinkers for some it became a colouring nightmare!
