Week 5 - Handmade embellishments.
Ummm......most of my embellishments are handmade! Like the paper scrolls & the flowers on last weeks , etc. I find it hard to use some of the bought ones, they are sooo pretty or expensive they just end up sitting in my drawers! So I did this LO quickly between challenges. The paper matches the pics so well (I think) & enhances the quite boring photos. When the new challenge came out I thought I would have to do a whole new LO cos I thought that 1 was finished, but I added some extra embellishments to it instead. I think the rusted grommets & copper wire fit in well. I do like how thiese chellenges are stretching me, I would have called this LO finished with out the wire thingys, but they are cool. I am definately being inspired to do some different stuff. I did however start another LO too, but it just isn't working.Onto far more exciting news.... my brother & his wife had their second baby on Thursday night (on her birthday!) A baby girl called Lucy Anne Dixon weighing 7 pounds & 6 ounces. Mother & baby doing well. Nicola & I are excited to have another girl in the family.
