Norman's latest Costume

Even tho the other boys at the Gentleman's Health Spa were surprised by Norman's latest Costume, they held him in the Highest Regard.
For He was a Trend Setter Indeed!

This weeks Challenge from Wednesday Stampers is to created
something with the theme Polka Dots

Well Here is my creation... just to give you a little smile :O)

A little while ago I received this lovely Cats Life's Press 'weathered dot' Stamp with one of my Lime Tart orders from Philippa, so I've used it on the BG and I have stitched around a few of them also..
other bits I've used are - Image from Tuscan Rose CD (from my buddy Kathy), Tombo Pen to 'polka dot' Norman's pants, scrap for his crown, the journaling is computer generated, brads & my sewing machine..
