C'est Bon


Over at the As You Like It Challenge they have a very interesting challenge which is to be inspired by your favourite object. I had several ideas in mind but I chose to make another picture based on my make up bag.


The funny thing is that I have often looked at it and thought I should make something like it so this was my chance. I used a Go Kreate die on the chipboard. I had to smile the other day when I posted another picture I made and said hubby cut the chipboard into 6x6 for me as a couple of people thought he cut it this shape with a Stanley knife. Now that would be clever!

Stamps - Tim Holtz French Market
Paper - Papermania Persimmon
Dies - Marianne key and Dienamics Eiffel Tower
Rose - Wild Orchid
Pearls - The Hobby House
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Other - DI Vintage photo

Isn't that ribbon scrummy and there are more beautiful ribbons in the fabulous new range now available at Crafty Ribbons.

Sorry I haven't had much time for blogging this weekend as we went away to Ipswich Saturday. Saw a great 60s concert and stayed in a Premier Inn then came home Sunday. I know Ipswich is only about 44 miles from us but we didn't fancy driving home late and it was a lovely treat to stay away. Premier Inns are so good nowadays and we had a great night's sleep and yummy breakfast.
