After fighting my way around Tesco this morning for the needed monthly shop I felt a needed some me time at the craft table. While I was at Alison's last week I borrowed her lovely new bigshot Dye and cut out a ton of topnote shapes in light chipboard. this is what I made with them.
Twice a year I host a walk on the beach for all my friends that own cocker spaniels (these friends have cockers from me and other breeders). We take tons of photos at each meeting and normally I'll make one or two LO's with them. I thought however this was a waste of all the lovely shots we take, so I made a minibook :) something, If you read this little corner of blogland you will know I love making.Trying to be good again I didn't use any full sheets of PP just snips and scraps.
I coated each chipboard shape in herma to get a good coverage of sticky, then trimmed, sanded and inked all the edges of paper.
Adding flowers (primas) and alphas to each page some glossed flowers and a few buttons.
I then had a bash at this LO another photo taken at T&D's wedding this is all the girls I used to work with in the SEN dept at the high school.
I hand drew and cut the scalloped circle and then doodled around the edge and the holes that I had punched. the flowers are Primas (again :) I added a little velvet ribbon (that did not want to stick down!!!) a journal block from October afternoon (papers are also OA) for my title
adding a few pins (that have been snipped and tipped with GA to make then safe) a LB and some rub-on's from Doodlebug and MM.
