Lynne came up with this design for us to work with. If we'd have been at school I would have been in the remedial class, struggling with the pearl pens, messing up paper, etc etc but thanks to Lynne I came away with a nealy fnished page. (and a template for that lovely concertina butterfly. The background paper is plain - we made the pattern using a doily and some tim holtz distress inks. Will be trying that again just as soon as my inks arrive from the US.
I completed it today and it now has pride of place on my mantelpiece. The only extra I've added is the heading - because I chickened out of journalling again. It's taken from a Cosmo Cricket Strip-tease from the Gretl range.
The picture is of my darling boy aged about 3 and he's actually trying to catch a bubble. I loved the Martha Stewart punch so much that I've asked my friend to buy me one from America. The pearls on the swirls are made with a Viva Pearl Pen which would have been my favouritest thing n the workd if I hadn't just taken delivery of my cricut expression.
