Super Saturday - Little Miss Muffet


Happy Super Saturday!

Yucky damp and drizzly here at the mo, typical start to a bank holiday weekend, lets hope it brightens up!

Right peeps sorry I have been quite lately and yes I am behind on commenting , I have 'life' going on at the mo and not in a good way so I hope you will bare with me while I wade my way through it.  I suddenly lost a  few followers this week which is a bit odd and a bit mean too!!

Anyhows Saturdays are always exciting over at Little Miss Muffet coz it's Super Saturday and that means we have a spotlighted image and a fab freebie so you gotta pop on over and check them out!  The spotlighted image is Cool Chester now he really is very cool and the freebie is Van Family Sister Brinda

Coloured with copics and the papers are EP Perfect Summer
