Shabby Chic

Saturday was National Scrapbooking Day and also the May Scrap Club.
This month the LO/technique was "Shabby Chic" - so lots of distressing and inking was called for.
We were told about this in advance so that we could bring along any trinkets/bits of jewellery we'd like to include on the page.
This is my LO:

A photo of my Mum in the late 1940's with a dog who may (or may not - my Aunt was a bit vague when asked) have been called Nell. Handmade scrunched flowers, a Prima alpha for the title and random pieces of my Mum's old jewellery - broken chains, two brooches (the bird and the blue roses) and a pendant watch.
When I finished it I realised it was just the thing for Bev's challenge on the WeScrap "Favourite Things" NSD Crop - the crop started on Saturday but we have all week to submit our projects - I'm hoping to do most of them if I can summon up the energy. Three hours sleep a night is just not enough!

Thanks for dropping by.
Hugs xx

We got a little pup on Friday, OMG! it 's like having a baby in the house again, have been getting up in the middle of the night for it, lol! Pics on my blog if you want to take a peek :) Suzie xxxx :)

Finally got the answer I;ve been waiting from Edward and boy was it worth the waiting for :-

"Yes, it's true and yes, you are exactly my brand of heroin"

The boy has finally come to his senses!!!

Susie absolutely beautiful - still not managed Shabby Chic - just can't seem to get the colours right - I usually get hit by a palate of primary colours and end up off at a tangent!
