Father's Day theme.....................

Hello there everyone!

It is Digi Choosday Challenge time and this weeks theme we are thinking of Fathers Day which is upcoming in the UK on 15th June. 

My bestest friend Laura has 2 year old twins and her hubby works as a train guard up where they live. What better image to use for Fathers Day other than Train Guard Tim off of Polkadoodles Digiworld Downloadables.  The wonderfully versartile Work & Play Collections that Nikky Hall has created are so much fun, and in Work & Play Collection 3 there is a Train Driver image and matching embellishments. Now this collection is available as a digi collection or on CD-Rom.

As I said, each image has accompanying papers, embellishments and sentiments to go with them, Nikky really does give you the whole package. The fabulous thing about this is of course, you don't need to struggle thinking of what papers you have to compliment your image or what you're going to need to match it, it's a simple task of clicking on what you want and cutting it out. I chose the striped paper and the train paper. I also used the train embellishments and the gate from the collection. 

Train Guard Tim is coloured with my Graph'It Markers
The following pens were used:

Skin: 4115, 4155, 4170, 3120
Uniform:  7140, 7150, 7155
Boots: 9503, 9505, 9506
Flag: 5120, 5125, 5145, 9503, 9505

I used a star from Doobadoo, which you can buy here and No.1 Daddy from my peel off collection.  My sentiment 'tickets' from the Work & Play Collection 3 have been coloured with Pan Pastel Ultramarine Blue Tint.

So there you have this weeks project, I hope you like it! Please remember to pop over to the main blog and see the rest of the fantastic teams inspiration for the challenge. Remember to join in too, we would love to see your creations!
