Scrapbook page and a little card

Been a bit of a quiet weekend this weekend - hips been playing up so just been sat and playing. We were in Louth yesterday afternoon for a mooch after visiting Eli on her 6th birthday so we trawled some of the charity shops there!! Found a deep photo frame with a HORRENDOUS picture in it but Steve said it could be quite easily removed so thats my next project I think - a lovely 3d image using some stamps and distress inks.

But in the meantime I played with a photo of my lurvely daughter Viki - she's as bad as me for having photos taken - hates them but I managed to get this one of her last weekend. Wanted to use a layout that was quite fresh and as she loves bling I used this lovely diamante swirl that I bought from Running with Scissors a while ago.

Then I played with my copics and a Whiff of Joy stamp and made this little card. Got some Nestabilities at the weekend (bit of a raid at Running with Scissors)so tried them out too. Used some K&Co papers and distressed the edges with Antique Linen and ....

....even followed the theme through to the inside. And Sam ..... there's no pink (for once)!

Well thats it for me - just another pile of ironing to get through! Oh and finish my other project that I started today - cost all of £1.99 from Instore!


  1. Hi Polly, You've been a busy bee again. Hope your hips are a bit better now. Lovely projects as always, can't wait to see the frame when it's done. See you soon I hope!
