CKC 'Forever'

Hello,

another layout to share......drumroll please......I have NOT used a white background!!! YAY!!

As much as I love white I did go through a bit of a kraft love a while ago - actually I still love it but my hand always goes to the black or white pile!! Anyhow, I was just about to clear my desk and throw all the bits away when I looked at them again and thought.......use them!

I was watching C & C and they had a Studio Calico kit on - I was just about to press the buy button on my laptop when I remembered....I can forge! More of that in a minute:0)

I have been in the loft retrieving old frames to paint for our lounge that has just been revamped (it's looking great!) and one of the old photos I removed was this one. It was one of my faves of DD#2 when she was about 2, mainly because it summed her up at the time. Always a little bit grubby and always doing random things, like sitting in her toy box with a handbag, a doll by her side and chewing a brick :0) She is still random, always has a handbag and doll has been substituted for nieces, but she is no longer boss-eyed, LOL!!!

OK, enough rambling and on to my layout:

the photo makes it look a lot brighter than it really is, but you get the idea :0) I have used the Picket Fence Distress Stain on TH Kraft resist paper.

forever was cut on the Silhouette

twine wrapped round a paper clip and tied in a bow 

the left overs of some die cutting and my Studio Calico forged journal card.......!!!
Thanks so much for popping in,

Ali x
