my dear hubby came home with this the other day found it in a skip what a find!! It was brown and a bit rusted but with a bit of time and effort from my other half it soon scrubbed up well. I have a smaller one in my craft room for ribbons not sure what to do with this one!! Tk Max have these at £65.00 but all mine cost was the price of a can of spray paint!!Let me know what you think girls x

I found it hard to buy things as lets face it my craft room is full of so many things but I did manage to buy something I didn't have a Tim Holtz rosette die fab is all I can say love it have taken a photo of rosettes to let you see them. You can make your own but why bother with all the hassle when this die does it for you till next time girls hope you all had a lovely Easter x

my girl.......


Have just finished this layout of Bethany in portglenone forest last May.She has grown so much since then and is turning into quite the young lady!!! Make-up and nail varnish, hair curlers the list could go on.I just need to add a little bit of journaling and it is finished but as usual my brown marker pen has disappeared!!! The paper I used was from my minds eye little boy blue and I have had it for quite a while but am pleased it went so well with this photograph.
