Sunset with my Pup

After doing numerous Create & Learn classes at Kit & Clowder over the past year I thought it was about time to put everything I've learnt into practice and tackle an image on my own. When I saw this new image called 'Sunset with my Pup' by Krista Leigh Smith as part of her subscription, I just knew it was time. Thanks Alyce Keegan for giving me the skills and confidence to step out of my comfort zone and have a go! I love what I've done and have learnt that I need to practice fur some more
