Coloring In My Jammies

Let me start by saying that yesterday (Saturday) was a perfectly dreary day in Houston....cloudy & overcast...threatening to rain all day....OK, after enjoying it so much on my birthday I did say I was going to start calling it "lounge wear" instead of pj's or jammies.....and that I was looking forward to the next time I could stay in them ALL DAY scrapping of course!  Well that day was yesterday and I spent the day COLORING!  I am among the world worst at collecting and never actually using.  Yesterday I decided it was high time I actually USED some of these beauties.
The first image is from the CTMH stamp set "paperdoll" if you would like to purchase it from my CTMH website CLICK HERE.

I had also accumulated a nice sized collection of adorable digi images from the amazingly generous & talented Anna @ Cuddlebug Cuties you can visit her blog HERE.  I choose "Bethany" as my first "cutie" to color. 

So without further delay (I have been informed by the hubster that I can NOT stay in my "lounge wear" again today since a run to SAM'S is on HIS agenda) here are my first attempts at coloring "people" with alcohol markers. When you click on the images below (anywhere except on the floating "P") it will take you to my still under construction gallery for all the details and recipes.

"Bethany" from Anna @ Cuddlebug Cuties - Isn't she just PERFECT for our "not so little anymore girls"?

    1. Thank you Susan, I always did love coloring. I remember when the kids were little that mommy always had her very own precious moments coloring books and we loved opening a new BIG box of crayons :-)

    1. Thank you Kathy! I had so much fun collecting all of them (kinda had to smuggle the last large batch of spectrum noirs in and keep the door my scrap armoir closed for a week or so) No need to startle the natives :-)
