Birthday Girls.

I've been finding it nearly impossible to get the time for posting.
The kids are keeping me busy, busy, busy. But so far our summer has been a lot of fun.
At school my daughter had to do a project about a local legend. Her and I googled ideas and found The Screaming Tunnel. It's a tunnel that is supposedly haunted by a young girl and my daughter was so intrigued by it that we took a little trip to visit it. It's just outside of Niagara Falls and is the tunnel used in the Dead Zone movie. I thought the kids might be a little freaked out going into it, but nope, not at all :)

That's daughter pretending to be a ghost in there. She's awesome.

For my cards I used another of Sureya's images, from deviantArt.

The papers are new -yay- that I picked up at Michael's. From a pack called Retro Collage. The sentiment stamp is super old and I don't remember the brand.

It worries me that the grey hair makes her look old. That wasn't my intention but, what-ever, I wanted to experiment with different colours so c'est la vie :)

Hi farrah great to see you back on your blog! Funny how kids don't seem frightened of 'atmospheres', perhaps it's just adults!!! Loving your cards by the way. Jill x

Love seeing the comparison in how you colored your images! :) I think the gray hair is great - very manga style and not old-looking. So glad you could join our Digi Makeover Dimension Challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps! :)

The picture of your daughter is so fantastic! I remember the tunnel in the Dead Zone...creepy! Your cards are so cool--love the design and the stamps you used. Your coloring is incredible! I don't think the grey makes her look old at all--it's a good grey. :)
