Friday Sketchers challenge Sketch #13


I came across the Friday Sketchers challenge blog whilst searching Google for stamps. Normally I wouldn't have time to take part but this week I thought I'd be ok to...with the Kids on their hols I never have computer time anymore which does leave a little more crafting time!

Anyway, this is Leo from La Compagnie des Elfes, he is a paper doll style stamp, the clothing and accessories are from the same line. I am a total sucker for anything called Leo as that is my Zodiac sign.

He reminds me very much of one of my Son's friends when he was about six, all of his clothes seemed to be too big, hair all over the place and always mud or yoghurt spilt on his trousers. Said friend is now off to Uni in September...how old does that make me feel?
