Heartfelt Thanks

Hiya I'm back! I hope everyone is good and how about Halloween so glad that's over with.
The kids had a good time until it started pouring on us. Needless to say Sophia went through two costumes that night because her bride dress got wet. Oh  I forgot to mention she was
Day of the Dead bride. My son was some kind of monster??? IDK his father and him picked it out at the party city store sigh...
Lauren was Monster High, Frankenstein something like that?
 I helped enhance the costume with makeup, jewelry and  touches of the accessories. The girls looked awesome and my boy looked well funny lol!! My oldest was working so she snoozed ....poor girl lol!
I didn't get many pictures because I was super busy trying to get them ready for the second time. You see they were sent to school with costumes but when I picked them up it was HELL! Actually that's an understatement....... Sophia had her costume in a plastic bag and her make up was gone! IDK but I guess it was rubbed off  ... just a hot mess!
 My Lauren had her dress ripped off because a teacher stepped on it ((rolling eyes) It had a long tail so I could see it was an accident and since it was raining super hard after school her make up was ruined, hot mess too!
My son just had to throw his costume on so he was stress free and he was enjoying  watching us girls struggle....MAN PFFFFT!!!
Orlando didn't have his costume on when I took the picture so he didn't get to come out on it.
 (I think he's going through a stage ugh) The morning touch ups were nicer. Lauren had gold glittered hair and the face paint was much nicer. Sophia's face painting was a bit more detailed and she had pink curly hair lol! :) Oh well there's always next year.

Ok so now for my scheduled card posting.
Saturated Canary has a new challenge and this time we are following a fun sketch by my talented friend and teammie Maria.
I'm showcasing one of Krista's new digis .
Her name is Willow and she's colored with copics and a very few Spectrum Noirs. I substituted the copics I didn't have or just ran out of ink with SN :)
My DP is from the Petals and Lace available over Little Darlings online store. I love it it's so pretty and the soft colors are gorg!
I just had such a relaxing time coloring her hair and I kept thinking all the different ways her hair could be colored. Maybe I'll do a tute on the different ways to color her hair because the ideas were just over flowing.
Watch me forget about it when the time comes lol!!! It always happens lol!
Anyways here are a few pictures

Stop by the challenge blog for more inspiration from the team.
Thanks for the comments and I'll be back very soon
Sweet kisses
