My First Tilda

Hi friends,
Thanks so much for your sweet comments from yesterday's posts :) so kind of you :)
Today I have this super cute Tilda. I'm so smitten with Magnolia Stamps- especially this one. What a sweet little face, don't ya think? My friend gets creeped out by the no mouth thing- but it doesn't bother me.
I masked Tilda to add the bench she's sitting on. I added some Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint to the bench to give it that aged wood look. I found it easier to paint on wood than on paper for some reason! I recently joined a Magnolia swap so I got 12 Tildas to play with & now there are more Tildas I *need* :)

Thanks so much for peekin' today! Tomorrow is my first day with my brand new kiddos, and guess where I'll be the night before? Library? Noooo.... Teacher Supply Store? Noooo... Last minute preparation in my classroom? Nope... all good guesses. I'm going to be at a Rock concert! Hee! Hee! That wasn't the best planning we've done, but hey you only live once! Don't worry, I'll make sure to be bright eyed & bushy tailed for my kiddos. Oh & a good shower will be in order!!! (Shhhhh... We'll keep this our little secret ;) ---Gotta go!
