'I was a teenage alien!'

Hi, guys! Isn't this little alien cute? He's from the Pollycraft Critters and Cogs set.

The current Pollycraft Monday Challenge theme is 'Celebrations,' with the optional extra of 'Stars and Stripes.' It's their 100th challenge and there's a fantastic prize, including a cd of 100 digis!!

Actually, I'd already decided to use this cutie, which is for a young man who is about to turn 13. He's a keen 'Dr Who' fan so the choice was pretty easy!

The sketch is based on the Sketch Saturday one this week, but I adapted it to suit the proportions of the image. Papers are Nitwits 'Spaced Out' digipapers. I used a Martha Stewart stars punch for the border, and a Woodware punch for the stars, which are glitter card.

The sentiment is Lili of the Valley - so useful! You can get various words to fit into the basic ticket shapes. I also put green liquid pearls on the stars on the banner, which has given a crunchy-looking texture that I rather like! I used Broken China DI to distress round the image.

And there you have it! I enjoyed making this one, everything fell into place so well! I love it when that happens!

I have finally got together my blog candy items, and I'll be posting about that tomorrow.

Thank you so much for telling me how to do a sticky post, you guys are the best!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
