Re visiting Zoe Celebrates!

Hello, how are you today? I'm feeling very refreshed after a 3 day weekend away with some crafting friends :) A few weeks ago Zoe asked in the Make it Crafty Facebook Group  for everyone to share their first Make it Crafty image and mine was 'Zoe Celebrates' back in July 2013 so I thought it would be fun to re visit this image to see how my colouring has evolved in the past 22 months. I think I'm getting a bit better and I will continue to practice, practice, practice.
