Summer workshop... first page

I went to a day long summer workshop last Sunday, and after a very hard days crafting (i felt like I had spent a day at work, we did so much!!) came away with 3 finished items, and 3 more to be completed. Here is one I finished at home, based (very loosely!) on a design by Ifa Zainon. I used the papers provided in the kit, (Websters), but changed almost all of the rest of the design (hence it looks suspiciously like one of my own pages anyway!!)

The photos are of Hannah taken for her sixth form prom a week ago, I used a Tim Holtz alphabet stamp set for the main part of the title, and a matching die (won at the crop... lucky me) to finish it off.

The embellishments were made from calico sprayed with glimmer mist, cut out and stitched (heart) love this idea and will definitely use it again. The flower is chipboard, coated with Glossy Accents and Beadazzles sprinkled on top. The original design was far more grungy than mine, but i decided to leave mine with a cleaner look... for a change. Pretty pleased how it turned out anyway. The red roses were part of a piece of ribbon trim, cut up and embellished with a button and gem, journalling paper Making Memories.

Busy day today, shopping with my sister, church fete, then more shopping with DD2 in town as she needs some new things for the summer.

Hannah looks stunning Ann.
Great LO too - love those roses.
All day crops are fun (if tiring!) aren't they?
