These Booties are Made for Walkin'

Happy House Mouse Monday!

Today is challenge #94 over at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog. We have a theme for you this time:

"Way to Go - Travel"
Interpret this any way you like and make a project that includes any House-Mouse & Friends stamps, Gruffies or Happy Hoppers characters. Get all the challenge details, prize info. and Design Team samples HERE.

Since you can travel by walking in shoes...I picked this adorable House Mouse Image called "Baby Shoes"

I used Clean & Simple Sketch 137 for my layout design.

Can you guess what I did different this time? I colored with Copic Markers. I don't think I like the results as much as my Prismacolor Pencils. But sometimes you just need to mix things up a bit...yes? I added a few touches of blue glitter on the shoes...but it's not showing in the pic.
