Just to add to my discomfort was the fact that I also opted to go the very florally route. I love flowers, however generally use them sparingly for a touch of prettiness, rather than make them a major design feature. I discovered this new 'Authentic' range of pp at my LSS (loosely referred to as 'local' in this context.. it's a 450km round trip!!) ... and saw it's 'fussy cutting' potential immediately. Okay, maybe it's not new, but I haven't seen it before.... :)
I also scraplifted myself! Can you guess which one? :)) If you are a little strapped for time, lift yourself I say! lol. If you liked one of your own designs, or for some reason it just worked, why not recycle it huh?
This is an old photo of Claire playing dress up's in readiness for her 'cupid' character at one of my work parties years ago. She clearly did not want to pose for photos in the beginning and had the 'sook face' firmly in place... then right at the end I managed to captured a rather 'fallen angel face' instead!!
SSSooooo... onto the closies:
... and the palette:
Oh, and also.... TCR has been adding to it's unbelieveable DT talent pool. Head on over and have a little lookie at the new lovelies!!
And finally, just because I've been enjoying my weekly 'things that make me smile' segments of my random everydayness .... and because I know, in years to come, I'll re-read these little treasures and get a real lift.
Whilst shaking excess crumbs out of the toaster the other day, I thought something in there sounded a little bit too solid to be the last vestiges of the good old seeded wholemeal. Look what I dug out....
Poor Coop's favourite scuba diving lego man, replete with oxygen tank and diving belt, looking something like Two Face from 'Batman: The Dark Night'. Poor, scorched little critter, a mere shell of it's former action man glory. Oh, little brothers can be soooo painful at times!! :) Despite the potential danger to house and home, I still couldn't help but smile.
Hope you all find little reasons to smile this weekend....
Thanks for popping in,
