Lets Get Shabby - Challenge 9

Cutting it fine again with my Let's Get Shabby challenge - create a shabby garden and include a quote from Alice in Wonderland!!! Soooo want to work part-time or even part of part-time :O)

Not quite sure if it's what I had in my mind at the beginning of the challenge but anyway here it is.....

I've used the main paper from a 12x12 K&Co paperpack that I've had since I first started scrapbooking (about a year ago now), distressed with scissors and inked with Walnut Stain. I had a piece of A3 white Funky Foam , never used so I made the little picket fence with it. Used several punches to make the flowers, leaves and butterflies and again inked them with Walnut Stain and placed them randomly on the page. The large corner flourish is a Sizziz die cut that can be used in the Cuttlebug. I had the watch in a box of pearls - dont know where that came from though :O)?

The rabbit is an image I found on the internet and cut out and I also cut Eli our grand-daughter out and placed it so that it looked like she was smiling at him. She certainly deserved her ice-cream bless her and it was very cold that day in the fields.

Well I can relax now knowing I've joined this challenge - missed out on the last one but as always the standard was very high and the creations were fantastic.

Right thats it for now - think I may watch Margaret Rutherford in Murder She Said - love the old black & whites TTFN XX
