Designing Diva's Monthly Blog Hop--Oldies but Goodies!

Can you believe it is already time for the Monthly Designing Divas  Blog Hop. The recurring theme is, Oldies but Goodies..  Use something you haven't used in  at least 6  months...If you arrived here from the wonderfully talented Chris Dickinson's blog you are in the right spot.  If you are one of my regular followers you might want to start at the beginning of the Blog Hop, which is Melissa Cash, so you don't miss a single creation from this talented group of Designers!!! Now for my creation:

This is one of my all time favorite images from Mo's Digital Pencil called Late. It is so perfect for so many different occassions, I just love the look on his face, he looks tired like me LOL!!!
The image is about a year old and I haven't used it for over 6 months.  I seldom use images more than one or two times but I think I have used Late about 5 times.
He was colored with copic markers and then cut with spellbinder scalloped circle die and I airbrushed the edge with the die still covering the edge.  The pink circle was cut with my Fiskars circle template and because it was a little too pink I sponged over it lightly with vintage photo distress ink which I also did on the scalloped border and base dp.
I tried to keep the design and layout simple but did add 3 flowers I cut from the same dp and made adding a pearl center to coordinate with the pearls on the bow and in the corners.
Thanks for stopping by and I hoped you enjoying seeing Late as much as I enjoyed bringing him to you!!!
I am the caboose on the Blog Hop,  Thanks so  much for hopping along with us today and I hope you have gotten an inspiration or two but I am sure you got one at every single stop, I know I always do.l

Have a wonderful colorful day!!!
