I've had an enforced couple of hours sitting in my bedroom this morning while my carpets and suite are being cleaned. I finished Faith's Trinket box and Card for her birthday next month, don't want to show it here in case she sees it. While these luscious papers were out (they're from the Ella Blue collection by GCD Design Studios) don't you just love them, I decided to do an LO for the Once upon a sketch October Challenge which also fitted in with the Scrap for Help October Challenge too. You have to use the sketch and also journal about 2 events that have happened in a week and MUST journal at least 1 sentence for each event for OUAS. Not a problem for me, you can't shut me up most of the time. LOL. The photo is my DGD Daisy,age 7, I love this photo and have a copy framed in my lounge. This fits the children theme for SFH.
I hid my journalling about Daisy on the reverse of a Teresa Collins Journal-It girl label which I tucked behind this gorgeous Kraft card die cut patterned heart from a pack of Christmas ornament hangers..
I hid my other event journalling inside a a card embellished with two stamped keys. It reads....I've been having a craft clear out this week and found this lovely fairy; just the right colour for my layout about Daisy!
I made the title from some Artoz cord on a reel, shaping it with some mod podge glue and sticking straight onto the page. The flowers were made from coordinating plain papers by Dovecraft (Lisa Bourne) to which I added some pearls and thin wire.
My recycled elements are the circle of white and silver spots is an old tag from a present and the fairy is from a previous Christmas card I made and never sent.
This last photo shows the hearts, 10 per pack for £1.99 and some plywood angels, 6 per pack, same price, from our local craft store.Great value I thought!!
Thank you so much for looking and any comments you may leave, I really treasure every one. xx
