Good Morning Ladies,
An early one for us today as Pat, Sue and Margaret are all arriving just after 7.30am so that we can all set off for Ally Pally, it has become a tradition that I love, mixing craft shopping with meeting lovely friends, my only wish is that more of you could join us, mind you we wouldn't get much shopping done!
Today's gorgeous crafts have been created by Janet and Lynda..........
Janet has taken some simple polystirene balls and turned them into the most beautiful baubles.
The first two Janet made before she went into hospital, they have been covered in beautiful lace and organza roses with pretty pearls in the centre, trimmed around with pearl trim, Janet, I could see these hung onto pretty twisted willow twigs as a table centre for a winter wedding, they are absolutely beautiful, they would make a beautiful gift for a couples for Christmas together, something for them to get out every year.
The bauble Janet made just a couple of days ago, it has been covered in stunning deep red roses, with cream ones placed inbetween to create a pretty pattern, how stunning would these look strung up at Christmas, (by the way Janet, I usually go for Burgundy and Gold/cream) hehehe!! I adore these baubles Janet, I could see little bridesmaids carring them too. You need to organise a craft sale Janet, you would make a fortune!
It's so lovely to see you back crafting again, it must be lovely for you too! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely baubles with us Janet xxxxxx
Lynda has made another of her beautiful altered boxes, oh my Lynda this one is so gorgeous, I absolutely love the image of a beautiful lady that you have used, she is stunning, the pretty frame you have used enhances her beauty! It really draws your eye in, you have used some gorgeous background papers Lynda and added texture paste through different masks to create texture and depth, it works so well, now it looks to me like you have stamped and embossed onto the sides of the box too, (it may be the paper though) you will have to let us know! I love the lace trim that you have added around the lid of the box, it works so well with your design. I have to draw attention to the absolutely stunning lace flower that you have created to add the finishing touch to the top of your box, its so pretty, the little pink sparkle string you have used gives just the right amount of sparkle. I hope that you have all of your boxes on display Lynda, they are just so pretty to look at, a perfect place to store some of your pretty embellishments too. Thank you so much for sharing your latest box with us Lynda xxxxxx
Well I must go and get organised before we leave for Ally Pally, it barely seems 5 minutes since we were leaving London on Thursday! I am really excited though!
I will tell you all about it tomorrow and share our purchases with all of you........
Oh by the way..... Aldi is selling a die cutting machine, it looks fab!!!
Love and Hugs to all
