I got these awesome coloring pages from Tracy that she found the other day tinkering around the net. Thank you, my image fairy godmother!!! Well she made a Valentine using one of the images she sent me and that that got me to thinking about my goddaughter.
My best friend's daughter is turning 17 this March. My almost 17 year old goddaughter and her little sister get a Valentine from Aunt RaRa (don't ask, I might not tell you, lol) every year. She's a good kid - a bit of a handful, but a good kid. She tries to be all goth, but underneath, she's a girly girl to the core. I thought of her when I saw this image - her big blue eyes, her hair: that is a gorgeous natural brown but has died black and wears black nail polish....
So two and two were quickly adding up. The new Bratz pages that I sooooo wanted to color can be her Valentine this year. She is after all turning 17...maybe the cutesy heart stuff has got to go? Maybe it's time? My mind was made up quickly. I quickly started to color her and I used the sketch from The Outlawz' current Wednesday Sketch Challenge for my inspiration.
