Looks like fun, right? I'm telling you, it definitely was! I haven't had a chance to explore EVERY page as of yet but those that I have fully added my own creative touch to I planned to share and share I will! No judging folks, this is all in good fun. *ahem*
Last but not least...
(This is one set of the wings featured in her work. Cutting them out would have produced an even better pic but Hamilton was hard enough to keep still for this candid shot. I hadn't even seen the author's inclusion of her puppy pic when I decided to take this one. LOL!)
