Totally Gorjuss 185 - Just Because!

Good morning everyone. Hope the weather's a bit better now for the Bank Holiday weekend. Needless to say I'm not on holiday on Monday :-(  But looking on the bright side I'm off the next Monday as it's a local holiday in my part of Aberdeenshire. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day, a bit windy but not too bad! Thursday was my day off and my friend and I went off craft shopping. We only got caught in one hail shower  but it was windy and cold and showery. When I took the dogs out about 5pm it was really wet and even windier. I was soaked right through! I'm sure my jacket was still damp when we went out on Friday morning.

But we don't need to think about holidays or weather at Totally Gorjuss this week. Our challenge is very easy, it's "Just Because." That should give you plenty of scope to use your imagination!

Here's what I came up with this week.

I used :-
Image and DP :- LOTV.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Sentiment and punches :- Stampin' Up!
Ribbon and Bakers' Twine :- Ribbon Girl.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Buttons from stash.

I realised when I was colouring this cute image that I'm really bad at colouring!! I think I should stick to things that need little or even no colouring. I think I've made a bit of a mess of this one.

Challenges :-
Passion for Promarkers :- Anything Goes.
Lili's Little Fairies :- Spots and Stripes.
Charisma :- Here comes Summer - must be Summer, he's zooming about in an open top car!
Addicted to Stamps and More :- Anything Goes.

Well I've got work this morning so I'll see you all later.

Thanks for looking and I love to read your comments so please leave me on if you have a minute to spare.
