'The Beauty of Every Day Life'


another lo for Project Italy...I could do with those blue skies and sunshine today....very grey and gloomy in this part of the world :0(

This lo was inspired by the lovely sketch #6 over at ScrapFriends, lots and lots of lovely inspiration so do and go and take a peep.

The photo was taken at beautiful Bardolino, a wonderful town in Lake Garda.

no pp on this one (or the last lo come to will my stash ever go down?!!)

background stamp is MS, felt cut with Sizzix die, PP button, arrow thing was me messing about with scissors, Elle Studio tag

I literally typed and welded this word on the Silhouette...oh how I love that machine :0)

The arrows are a spikey flower stamp from Prima. stamped and cut around, Ali Edwards phrase stamps and die cut Heidi Swapp paper....oh, ok that's 2 inches of paper used!
I loved this sketch....I always make a beeline for ScrapFriends' sketches, they have yet to disappoint :0)

Thanks for popping in today,
