This layout has journalling!!  I know, I'm shocked too!

Please excuse the glossiness of the photograph - this is the best shot I could get with the light as it was.  Bring on spring and summer!

The title is Onxby - the journalling explains why...

Buttons and sequins originally from a Things That Shine kit.  Gorgeous sheer dots ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

The pink bow garland is also from Things That Shine.

I'll erase the lines in a couple of days when there is no chance of ink smudging, I've smudged so many times that I'm always scared when it comes to erase the lines!

I'd like to entering this at Show Us Your Stuff with my handmade item the garland.  I started off following the sketch faithfully but when I had finished I realised I've changed quite a bit!  I may well be disqualified for straying too far...

Thanks for stopping by!
