Baby Boo – Scrapper’s Delights DT post

Today’s Post is for the Scrapper’s Delights blog and the delightful digi that I have used today is called Baby Boo Bumble Bee  and it is currently FREE from the Scrapper’s Delights store.  The digi was coloured with Promarkers, chosen from a limited palatte to match the  colour inspiration below.

I have used papers from Crate – Little Bo Peep and the heart sentiment is from Hunkydory’s Gorgeous Girls collection.  Various paper flowers and the tiny bow were from my crafty stash.
