Gena as Dog sitter...

My 13 y.o. neighbor girl  watched our house and our dogs this last summer... Her first paid job!  She loves our dogs and is wonderful with them!  I am just getting around to posting the thank you card I made for her.  She likes to wear mismatched socks and a grey hoodie which is pretty much her uniform of the day.  My hubby calls her the Princess Sparkly Unicorn - she LOVES glitter.  We paid her - but the best part for her was getting free reign in my RubberRoom!  I thought this Mo Manning image was soooo appropriate!
I colored her with Copics, added 'buttons' to the image panel and mounted it on Desert Storm Neenah CS.  Corners were rounded with a Making Memories "Corner Chomper" - one of the top ten most used tools in my studio.
