~Go Confidently~

Got a bit random today.

I get it from my girlies.

Random is IN, you know.

My youngest is begging to go buy a stuffed Jamaican banana~dreadlocks and all

(rumored to be in an amusement park shop 4 hours away from us) .


This is her dream.

I can't make this stuff up.

I combined two stickers to create a random scene for her in honor of the

Maybe she'll get that banana soon~or perhaps she'll search for a crowned rhino or anything else random that's CLOSER to our house.

I used Tim Holtz black crackle paint to edge a layer of this card.

Thanks to 

my rhino gets crowned!
