Several other digi's to go with this theme.
So hurry hurry hurry!!!!!! to be in with a chance :) and good luck !!
Here is what I created with the image I chose
This image is called "Lunch on the Fly" and it made me smile as soon as I saw it.  I don't think I will actually ever let this leave my shelf as I love it so much - so it is Just to cheer me.

A very simple layer of pearlized coffee paper with the not too fussy red paper on top with the image framed with the pearlized paper and simple pearls so as not to draw the attention away from the image, not that anything really could.

The image I printed two, one to practice on and one as my final piece.  I cut out the practice one and placed this carefully as a mask over the final piece.  I then used my torn paper and Tim Holtz distressed denim distress ink to create the cloudy sky.

Here is a close up of this amazing image
I have used copics on the dragon  and Atyou glitter pens on the poor little man that is his lunch.  I added just a little clear glitter sakuro to his teeth and nails
Like I said a fabulous image to colour and a dragon now you just cannot get better than that.
