Lets get Shabby meets Hannah Montana

I know this is so last minute, but I have spent most of the month planning it however I just simply haven't had the time to make it....anyway here is my piece for the
"Lets Get Shabby" monthly challenge which is to use GINGHAM & FLOWERS.....I think I met both criteria!!lol!

The weather has been glorious today ....unfortunately by 4.0'clock the sun was still bright and the shadow long and these photos are awful and don't do the frame any justice but I really needed to get these piccies on before the Aussie deadline...will re-photograph tomorrow..which I think is going to rain so probably not!!

This cute stamped heart was kindly sent to me this week from Teresa aka Catz. She gave me a whole bundle in all sorts of different colours and all hand coloured!! If you haven't already got Teresa on your daily read this then you must add her now..she is extremely talented.......and I am a very lucky bunny!!

My niece Aimee went to a Hannah Montana day and for those of you who haven't got small girls you will have no idea what "COUNTRIFY IT" means. It's a dance move!! (I had to look up the spelling on u-tube thats how un-cool I am!!) Although I do know some of the words and some of the moves but then also I have to listen to it 24/7.

I love this wrinkly red gingham ribbon from Tillys.....the pink one I ruffled with less tape than ribbon.

I added oodles of Prima flowers.........just to meet the criteria......(yeah right..any excuse huh!!)

This Chandelier is from K&Co and if you press the button it gives a 20 second light display...kind of like her name in lights I thought! I added a touch of3D gold Perfect Pearls to the wicks.

So here she is in her glory doing the hoe down and countryfying it!! As it's her birthday very soon I'm sure Mummy (Helena a serial crafter like me) won't show her this picture on the internet just yet!!

Other news.....we are in the newspaper today click HERE if you are family and are interested!! I couldn't find us on-line but here are the photos anyway!! I sent a letter to the paper saying what a fab job the soldiers did at the Hospital Carnival dealing with hoards of kids who were waiting for fake wounds and they printed my letter and 2 photos!!

........Hoe Down Instructions..... ...... Love Georgia xxx......

Love and line dancing
