And we have


Here's my latest LO for SCRAP THERAPY
Its of Paige at Playgroup playing in 'Home Corner' kissing her babies 'night-night'

The curtains behind paige in the photo were so bright and full of patterns that it was best to cut them out.
The Fancy Pants 12x12 Cards are great to make a background that suits the LO.

There's another week left to join in the

Hope to see you there!

Let's Get Shabby's 2nd Birthday, Maya Road Chipboard Mini-Album

I cant believe that its been 2 years already since we opened
'Lets Get Shabby'! 
So if you'd like to be in the running for a RAK (we are giving away two!) from Julie and I,
then you'd better head on over HERE .....
to join in the fun and find out how!!!


I've made this little Mini Album for Hannah
 from Maya Rd chipboard and Fancy Pants Papa Cards Paper
The mini album called Square Scallop Frame Diecut Coaster

and adding Fancy Pants Papa Cards 12x12 Paper

One can be forgiven that it could be thought to be for masculine pages :D ... but not so :wink:
Its totally perfect as a little mini for Hannah whose favourite colour is blue... I love the quotes in the cards and cut my favourite ones from the 12x12 :D The only other thing I've done is changed the chain for a jump ring :wink: I've also cut out little parts of photos that had a great pic of hannah in them, but maybe not a great background, or that she was standing next to someone with their eyes its fab to make use of these pics!


The front window is cut from 12x12 Fancy Pants Christmas Magic Holly Overlay
There's plenty left - and I've got another idea to use the rest of it! :wink:









Fancy Pants Sweet Pea Ribbon

It only took me a couple of hours to make (its only little) and the time consuming part was painting the edges and waiting for them to dry :roll:
And I forgot to put up the results of a 'Blind Scrap' I hosted for June

If you are interested in doing July's Blind Scrap, then you need to visit HERE for the ingredients and information needed (big smile)


I took part in Leanne's Recipe Challenge!
 You can find the challenge here... but you do need to register

Its been a busy week... Maya Rd Oval Chipboard Mini-Album

July's123 Challenge Criteria is up:
Create a 'scene'
Use the word 'thing'
Here I've cut,  watercoloured  to create a street in Paris for Paige


Maya Rd Oval Chipboard Mini-Album
I've used these fabulous 12x12 double sided papers which can be found in all different designs and colours in the Shop -
this one is called 'About a Girl - Cards'

and mixed it with this fabulous little Maja Road Chipboard Mini-Album which is actually calledOrnage Tag Coaster

And this is the result :P
I did paint around all the edges of the chipboard, and changed the chain holding it together to a jump ring :wink:









Fancy Pants Sweet Pea Ribbons

I did brights (unusual for me!!) but its about Paige...and she is a bright personality.

Here are some of the other Fancy Pants 'Card' 12x12's that would also go great with little mini's!!

Happy Holidays
My Family
On A Whimsy
Rusted Sun
