Let's hear it for the boy!

Hey there!
Happy Monday... hopefully the week is off to a great start for you! :)

I'm back with another Tickled Pink March preview. There are six new images by Christina Dee and one set of sentiments by Ann being released on the 13th in the TP store. Today the spotlight is on Lil Lad Lestat... he's a moody, brooding guy with loads of attitude.

Because I've been a huge Anne Rice fan ever since first reading "Interview with a Vampire" in high school, I just had to pull my inspiration from Lestat's namesake when I went to color him up. Blond hair was a must and I pictured him all dressed up for Lestat's rock star faze... swoon! Nothing wrong with the bad boys from time to time, LOL! ;)

And of course it wouldn't be a Tickled Pink preview without a prize now would it? As always if you want a chance to win 'Mr. Mysterious' Lestat in RUBBER, all you have to do is leave a comment on the Tickled Pink blog. It's as easy as that! While you are there be sure to check out what the rest of the Pink Ladies have created too... so inspiring!

TTYL!
