Green Green Green -- We colored GREEN -- with YG21, 23, 25, 45 --

Oh, how I love those DRAGONS -- and I am NOT a dragon person.  You should see the two NEW ones that are ALMOST done.

Here is Dragon Jill Swinging -- surrounded by the beautiful Spellbinder dies.  I have totally fallen in love with the new Spellbinder dies.  And I am REALLY excited about the larger Grand Caliber dies.  They just keep making things bigger.

And, of course, there had to be a scrapbooking girl in the Everyday Kids Series.  She had to be green, too.

And how do you like the Feather embellishment?  WOW

If you want to purchase the digi images, go to  (e-store).  They each come in three sizes -- perfect for many occasions.

Hair Hair Hair -- How do you color hair, and what markers do you need?  One of the biggest question we get is what markers do I used for hair.  Now, I am going to give you some answers.

 Real hair has many many colors.   I decided to get logical about this question.  To begin with, I am going to post hair using color families. 

So watch this post, or go to my Pinterest board  (

The first color family I am using is the Earth tones in the 20's.  This family of browns tend to be warm.  Some look almost blond going to a brown, brunette, and auburn.  The markers I used are E21,23,25,27,29.  I colored the base coat first.  The first color listed is the base coat.  Then progressed on.  See the YouTube video to check it out.

E-mail me at and I will e-mail you this image and a blank image to color your own free of charge.

Oh my gosh.  I got these new dies that make windows and shutters.  I could hardly wait to use it.  We have over 60 EVERYDAY KIDS digi prints.   This is just one of them.  I call it "Girl with Tulips"  I actually made it for my mom, as she loves to garden, and loves dogs.  So I colored two of the 17 dogs we have in digi stamps to look like our Mocah and Latte.

Then, of course, I had to make curtains out of vellum, and grass out of some scrap paper.  After I made it as a card, I am thinking about putting it in a scrapbook for her, as I have other Everyday kids that remind me of her.

We have a new series, called Dragons, Dragons, Dragons.  These were so much fun to color using the Copic Markers.

I used these colors:

Dragon, leaves Green  YG21, 23,25,45
Dragon:  Violet:  V12,15,17
Pot:  E11,13,15,17
Flower:  Y13,17,19

I don't know I first made this in to a card -- 6X6, but have decided I am going to make it in to a wall hanging-- with a series of three dragons.  I think that will be fun.

I added a photo of the  2nd and third dragon -- wow, am I loving these.  They are so easy and so much fun to color. 

You can buy the images at -- e-store.


OK -- took the sentiments off, pasted to 6X6 chip  board, punched holes, added rings and ribbon -- cards turned in to wall hanging . . .  I have a grand nephew that would LOVE it. . .but he would want to color it  himself.
