Good Afternoon Everyone
I hope you are all fit and well on this gorgeous sunny
This could be my last blog before I go off to Mexico on my holidays,
we will be away nearly 3 weeks, never been away that long before
I hope I will not get bored, what with all the sun sea and sand and of course
the odd couple of drinks and loads to eat. I have set myself the target of
swimming for 1 hour every day as I have lost nearly 2 stones over the last 6 months and
don't intend to put the weight back on, but, I will see how I  manage.
Now onto my creation for today.
This is a large Shadow Box that will hang on one of the
bedroom walls, which we have just painted in green.
This happens to be the room my Son and Daughter in Law use when they come and
house sit while we are away, but, when Melissa saw the subject she said  she does not
want it hung up until I come back as she found it scary,  what do you think?
The image is called
SANTA MUERTE Spanish for
Mitzi Sato-Wiuff images and I loved colouring it.
You can buy this and many more  of her images from
I also used the amazing new
Available from
The Shadow Box was cut using my Cameo.
Thank you all so much for visiting and leaving me a comment.

It's a beautiful shadow box and the colours and flowers are beautiful, but I can see what your Daughter in law means about it being scary.

Hi Janet, I hope you have a wonderful holiday in Mexico.

Your shadow box looks fabulous, love the design and the flowers are stunning. I have to agree even though you have coloured the image beautifully (as always) it is a bit scary.
