Creative Tuesdays - Purple

This week's theme over at Creative Tuesday's is
My girls suggested that Madeline the Mouse should have a friend - I agreed.
Summer thought that Madeline's best friend would be a frog, so we named her Violet, just in time for
Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday's.

Come play along with us, here, it's so much fun!
see you there
