I have always been a shabby girl at heart......you should see my skirting boards!!! (A little dust and a few old accessories are just my thing!! )
So when I was invited to become a member of the Lets get Shabby Design Team there was no hesitation on my part....just a little panic at the next day deadline!!
Boy I have never scrapped so fast in my life. In-between school runs and a training morning for work I met the deadline!!
....Phew..... No time for indecisions, I have fallen in love with my stapler again - how quick is that gadget for attaching cotton lace!!
I followed the sketch but reversed it a little and met the twist with a scrap of very old lace and a little vintage diamonte buckle. I took inspiration from the design and the neckline of grannies dress and hopefully this is reflected in the angles of the lace and the large flower.
My interpretation of the two circles
I'm not sure how old my Grandmother was in this photo but she didn't get married until she was 27 ....I loved her hair cut into a Bob...she had it this way for all of her 93 years!! As for the photo it's a poor quality replica of the original but I am grateful for having it anyway and to have finally given it a good home, although I'm not sure she would have approved of the title!!
I'd like to thank my new colleagues for such a warm welcome today........I can't tell you how excited I am......I don't think I'll ever get to sleep this morning!!
Love from a very happy scrappy bunny
