Gosh I don't know about where you live but we have had a "shower" for the last two days!! Which means that my windows cannot be painted, nor can the borders be weeded so......crafting time!! Once the dreaded H word had been done!
So as it is Tuesday (well, near enuff) I thought I would share this week's layout with you......
Yes! It is yours truly having had her hair cut short for the first time at a hairdressers! When I went to the said hairdressers, my hair was long enough for me to sit on and had never been cut more than an inch to cut off the dead ends. But at the time I had this haircut, pageboy styles were the "in" thing and I was now a big girl at comprehensive school so my mother finally relented and let me have it cut.
I used a plethora of papers all of which were VOS, Bo Bunny, Kaisercraft and I cannot remember the dark brown one as I have binned the tab - Oops! The flowers were on the reverse of the turquoise paper which I fussy cut and shaped using my new McGill ball tools. The Prima pearl flourish I bought in Cornwall on a retreat some four years ago and I was just waiting for a suitable project to use them on.
The brads are VOS and I blinged them with schtickles. The flower ribbon was sent to me by my WOYWW PIFer Deeyll - thanks again.
There is a Snippet of waxed cord being woven through the punched edge here. I had used this on Saturday during an online workshop whereby I made a handstitched book. That is another blog posting and was hilarious!! Photos on a layout soon!
These lovely birdies were sent to me by a Playground Buddy. Aren't they adorable? A little stamping there on the background with some perfect pearls. The letters were cut on my Cricut. (Note to self....look out for some more fonts!)
The Bo Bunny cream card needed some szchoozing so I used a stencil with some Peacock and Rusty Hinge DIs. A tab pulled out of the Snippet box, left over from the friend books I made recently. The funny thing about this layout is that I had company in my craft room whilst creating it through the wonders of technology! My friend Belinda was in South Africa and we had such a giggle crafting together! Thanks Belinda.
Before I go I just wanted to share this photo with you. As I mentioned it has been raining heavily here for two days and imagine my surprise when I peeped over the railing to find this flower blooming! We have tried for many years to get a Passion Flower to take off here and this year we finally have three buds. One has already flowered and now this one, though the label was purple so not sure why these are white!
Off over to the Playground to share this layout (Snippets) as well as Our Creative Corner as there are words on my layout too! Sorry this post is a little long but....well, I wasn't called Miss Chatterbox by Mrs Margerison for nothing!!
Thanks for calling by.
