A tortoise making a scene.

Well it's only just been over a week but I feel like I've been away from blogland for ever. An ATC for my October swap......I'm late with so many things this month, I can't believe I've not been waking in a cold sweat after a dream of arriving for my exams without having prepared lol. The theme for the swap is simply decoupage, I chose this little cutie (an online freebie) because I adore tortoise's.....and I so enjoyed creating a little garden for her with die cuts and stickers.  I pre coloured the stickers with acrylic pens and then filled them with Sakura glaze pens. I wanted a little more dimension so added the little dragonfly and flower brads....had them so long I don't know where I got them from, I'm loving being able to use all this stuff lol.

I'd wanted to enter this in a challenge for creating a scene, but silly me, I was supposed to use a stamped image...don't say a word lol.   

My Receipe -
Tortoise Decoupage ... The Lilac Garden
Stickers.... Craft Creations 
Die-cuts & brads ... Stash.

I'd like to enter my ATC in the following challanges :-
The Paper Players - Anything goes
Some Odd Girl - Orange, Green, Purple
Simon says Challenge - Die Cuts
A Spoonful of Sugar - Die Cut's
Flourishes Challenge - anything but buttons and bows
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Anything goes

Oh Lin! This could have fit in with the Creative Belli challenge which is old and forgotten embellies. If you can add it before the new day starts it would still qualify. :-)
THis is very cute. I love turtles too.
Saw a poor little finch today which had hit a window at the KH and her little spouse stayed with her til the end. I moved her of the path and nearer her hubby. Poor wittle fing. :-( I hate that.
