My Creative Space...

Almost done!!!


I just need to work a little trim around the edges and finished!!  Then I can get some cute photos of Alexis wearing it. Although I am certain it will swim on her she is only twelve, I think it will give the whole piece more life then just hanging there like it is. Maybe show off how hard I worked on this dang thing. I am still in a bit of shock that it's pretty much finished. Keep an eye out for the completed pics!

And Thanks Kirsty as always for hosting.
