Hearts & pink stuff!

Oh lucky day ... I had the happiest mail from across the pond today! 


Actually I'm just excited that I got and envelope with a big gold "royal mail" stamp on it!  I know, I get excited way too easy ... anyways, inside ... this gorgeous silver heart pendant from Angela of SofiNos Designs ...   and true to form, i had just enough time to take a picture of it, before my daughter (who shall from this day forward be renamed the magpie), swooped down the stairs, scooped it up proclaiming that it far better suited her than me and then disappeared into her room ... sigh ...


and before i forget ... i won this gorgeous piece of jewellery ... it was Angela's doorprize for the OWOH event ...

I made this shadowbox for my daughter, the magpie, yesterday while at a crop.  It took me most of the crop to make, not that it was difficult but because i was too busy having fun at the crop ... love my monthly scrapping group girls, they are sooooo much fun!    So yeah, if you are counting ... that is the second heart themed prezzie my daughter received today...  She loved it!  I'm wondering if I could pull off a fleur-de-lis  in this style for myself ... hmmmm ....



And here is a little layout I did recently of my magpie ... before she died her naturally blonde hair, dark dark brown .... grrrrr ...

oh, pardon the grrrrr .... what I really meant was how lovely that she has sooooo many hair options at her age ... sigh ....

The chandelier is Kaisercraft wood ... i painted it bright white, then inked it to tone it down and then used some glimmer glam on it ... and the scroll is Pink Paislee ... i don't know what it's made of ... kinda of a rubbery feel to it, i painted and inked for some subtle shading ... Both of these items were fun to play with ... you can find some at Tiny Seed 

So that's what I've been up to ... thanks so much for stopping by ... I love visitors!!!

Peace, love & paper

Love the new nickname for Hayley ;) and your layout of her is gorgeous and your shadow box is stunning, it was great to see it IRL and to spend some time with you "playing and scrappin'".

What beautiful things you make. I'm still working on the five things so that I can post, as promised.
You'll be surprised when you see my post today - great minds thing alike!

How sweet to get mail from abroad. Tough to lose it to the magpie. Love your two projects. I'm partial to hearts so that one really jumps off the page for me.

Congratulations on your lovely win! I had to laugh about your daughter swooping down on it!

And that layout is fabulous. Is that just strips of paper rolled into roses? Wow!
