Made with Love xx

Hi peeps,
Wow I'm back, when I saw the challenge on Magnolia Down Under I just couldn't resist making this project, I got this stamp at the weekend and I love her, she's in the Christmas collection but she could be used any time I think so you'll probably see more of her lol,
on to the challenge which is for Shabby Chic, well I hope this is it, because I'm one of them that's not sure where that ends and vintage begins lol, so if I'm wrong you'll have to let me know, then forgive me lol,

I've quite a few piccies to show so you may want to get a cuppa before you start he he,

It's a difficult one to photograph this too, so you'll have to forgive me that too, 

The image is coloured with Copics and after changing my face  colours I think it actually looks ok on screen as in RL they've looked ok before but the camera's not seen that lol,
all my paper edges are sewn, then distressed, the brown patterened paper is edged with a Magnoli Doo Hickey lace die cut, the tag has a script stamp used on it with a little tulle in the top, the lace matches the lace used for the box and was off a market stall, so was a good price too, the swirl on the main image is a clear stamp swirl but I don't know who's sorry!

The sides and back are covered with the lace and both sides have the added pearl gems, 
I've put in another Magnolia image just to show it's a working drawer but I think I may give this to my mum for a Christmas gift,
The handle is a Tim Holtz idea-ology hitch fastener and fastens with a screw at the back of the drawer,
I've forgotten to take a picture of it but the top is a card which I can add a sentiment too later,
the edges of my image have antique linen applied with a blending tool,
to finish it off I've added a tulle bow, some more pearl gems, a rose which has platinum stickles added here and there, her Bolero  has Glamour Dust on it, what did I ever do with out that lol,
Papers are from the GCD Ella Blue collection, love these too,

Oh well, hope you've enjoyed looking, come back for a brew soon,

I have just nearly cried, BT is looking at my connection today and I'd just written all this when my screen went blank and my home page came up, I thought I'd lost all this edit, but thankfully when I went into edit posts their it was phew! maybe I love Mr Blogger after all lol,
