A Day off today...

...eating like royalty, and i think my poor digestive system needs a rest! As we are going out to a party tonight (a ruby wedding) where we will be fed, Kev's contribution to Come Dine With Me (and the result!!) will have to wait until tomorrow.

I scrapbooked under my own steam .. ie not a class, for the first time in ages last night with my Coventry scrapping friend Anna. She produced a beautiful LO of her lovely daughter covered in ice cream, and i was a bit more self indulgent with a very girly LO. It meets one of the SLYMI challenges i was behind with (scrap a square within a square) and uses both old and new stash, stamping, stitching, and photos of shoes, what more could a girl want!
The background paper is Imaganisce, with the rest being a BG range from a couple of years ago. Stamps (as ever) are Unity including the fabulous tiara i picked up at Stampeezee. To make this even more girly i played about with lots of tiny stones (Papermania) and oversprayed the lot with a lovely new Cosmic Shimmer mist i picked up, again at Stampeezee.

I saw a grid of photos separated by stitched lines in this months Creating Keepsakes, never one to bother lugging out my sewing machine (it weighs a ton!) i just stitched the lines by hand. Title is Thickers and Doodlebug stickers with added Glossy Accents.

Yummy LO Ann! love the shoes and the stitching. Hadn't noticed this in the mag - but I did "copy" the cover LO.

It's a great LO. I think the words 'I'm not Imelda Marcos but...' should be in a book of quotes!

Now I know why I hadn't noticed the stitching - it's in the Oct. issue! It's just arrived.

p.s it was the Sept. issue cover that I "copied".
