My Princess My Dog

I had to take a 'time-out brain-break' from report writing on Saturday night, so what better way to do that than scrap a LO. I decided to use the Sketch challenge from ScrapBoutique's Cybercrop this weekend to scrap this photo I have had sitting on my desk with these BG Pyrus PPs for weeks. I'm so glad I did because I love the end result! Then again I'd love anything that wasn't a report!!!

A Little 'Tattered' Gift Idea

Looking for an inexpensive, pretty gift idea? Then look no further!! Scrapbooking embellishments are not just for layouts. For a few dollars I purchased this glass candle holder and I have used some Monet inspired blooms, a floral cabachon and a vintage doily from Tattered Inspirations, along with some chippie embellishments from Scrapmatts, an old ticket, paper and ribbon to create this decorated candle holder.
Head on over to the shop to purchase some of these delectable flowers and cabachons ...... here!!!

Have a great day and don't forget to leave me a comment to say that you stopped by!
