Our bedroom is neither blue nor green it has both colours in it although I prefer the name Aqua as it is not duck egg blue. When I discovered these papers had both colours in I knew they would be perfect for my dressing table.
So here it is..... the Valentines present that I made for myself..........it has been finished for a while but I spent ages umming and ahhhing over the design on the top...did it need more? But no matter how many times I rearranged things I came back to this and removed half of the clutter so after nearly a month of it sitting next to my frying pan in mortal danger of being spat on I decided to just get on with the gluing and live with it!!
I shall live in eternal hope of actually getting love letters to put in it, although I did get a sweet handwritten note from Georgia the other day when she was banished to her room for losing her temper so I may resort to saving these instead!!
I used modge podge to glue half a paper doily and the lace trim on to the top. The glue really protects the delicate doily paper from damage as it sticks like nothing else can!!
More of that awesome ribbon rose bud trim layered over a sheer scalloped ribbon.
Check out this site Handmade Help...they are asking for crafting items to be sent to Australia for the bush fire victims to help re-build their lives. Some of the stories will break your heart.......I can't imagine losing everything. In fact it's one of my biggest fears but I guess when it does happen you just revaluate your life and are grateful that God spared you on that day.
