Some Hippie Love

Hello friends.  I have something new to share with you today.  Several weeks ago (or maybe months?)  I picked up a few notebooks at a local store so that I could alter them.  You know, take something fairly cheap ... and ugly ... and turn it into something pretty.  Well, I finally finished one!  And I have to say, I really like the way it turned out.

My image is Sugar Nellie's Simply Sassy Hippie Love.  Don't you just love that outfit?  I colored this sweetie with copics and colored pencils.  I added some StarDust stickles to her string of hearts and used a black glaze pen on the jacket buttons.  I added some flowers and ribbons to finish my notebook.  This notebook is for my niece and I know she's going to love this little hippie.  You can find Hippie Love and all the other adorable Simply Sassy images at Funky Kits

Thank you so much for stopping by.
