Yup thats me!! I am so lucky to have the kindest and most generous crafting friends...where else in the world would complete strangers send you the most beautiful desirable impossible to get hold of papers......but through the internet.
Who would have thought that little stay at home me could make such lovely friends.... I had a debate with a tutor the other day about people with depression needing true friends and I said "does the internet count!!" She said "NO."....I would have to disagree with her because I think in my fantasy internet world that my crafting buddies really are good and honest friends.
A huge and massive hug and thankyou to Toni Kelly who has sent me a stash of the ....OMG my fingers shake just typing the word......Graphic45 papers!!
Toni was the Graphic45 featured designer on their blog recently....click here....and I have long been an admirer of her work through Scrapbook.com. The heart of roses is for you....well it will be when I can get my hands on some more from the secret flower lady!!
To be honest those flowers looked a bit tacky stuck onto a paper heart shape but I couldn't pass them up and I'm so pleased I didn't because they look fab with these vibrant G45 papers.
The cherry pie is from the Webster Pages Family Style range that I was also lucky enough to receive....my only dilema...1920's elegance or 1950's kitch housewife....where to start first arggghh!
anyway........I added a touch of black marker pen on these BG letters to make them match...
I used these Graphic 45 elements with a touch of glossy accents to emphasise the cherries and to make them good enough to eat!
And a close up of Georgia....just because.......!
I also got my layout back from Scrapbook Inspirations today so have re-photographed it, because my only copy of it was taken at 7am on a grey morning and I haven't any detail shots. I know most of you have seen it before but here's the details that you couldn't see in the mag...like my distress paints... ......and a few more distress paints.....
maybe a drop or two of distress paints here.......
..... I think I went into distress paint overdose that month...thankfully it has calmed down now!
Love and everlasting friendships
