Sitting Pretty

I adore this photo of Georgia. It is a re-enactment of one of me when I was about 3 years old, (one day you might see the original in a heritage or comparison page!).

When the uber talented Tracey Jackson aka "runningwithscissors" set up a stitching class on the Paperparadise forum I immediately knew that this was the picture I had to do. I'd been waiting for the right design and Tracey provided one which was perfect. I have stitched on Lo's before and sometimes you just forget you can do these things!!

The flowers have diamond glaze/glossy accents on them to look like dew drops and the Basic Grey undressed alphas were painted and glossed, the corner thing is papermania (.99p from Boyes) and was covered in horrid paper!! So out came the trusty paint to get a perfect match!!

Still loving that Basic Grey range and am pleased I bought the whole set, I think I'll do that more often in future as you definately get your moneys worth!!
