Ava

Hello! Have you seen that it's time for a new challenge over at Saturated Canary? :) The theme this week is office supplies and I made something a bit different. It's Jon's birthday on Monday so I made him a little gift box...I'm putting some goodies inside for him :) Yes I know it is a little bit girly...but what do you expect?? LOL!


I used the gorgeous Ava and coloured her up like me :) I think she's a bit prettier though! Look at that yummy hair :D See those nifty white stars...they are actually paper clips! I have had them forever in my paperclip tin and thought they were perfect for the office theme :)

This is the box on its' side. When you open it up I have made another little flap with a wax seal and that has some paper goodies in(I don't want to say just in case it gets read! hehe). Here are the copic colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: Y20, YR23, E33, E35
Blue: BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Pink: R81, R83, R85, R59


Hope you like her and thanks so much for stopping by!! :D
