This mint lace from Crafty Ribbons is quickly becoming my go to lace. It seems to match perfectly with every scrapbooking collection I've been playing with recently.
Ans yes, a whole 12x12 layout about cheesecake. Cheesecake is big in my life!
I sometimes get 'full-kit-itous' and 'un-cut-sheet-wobbliness' - you know when all the goodies are so perfect that you don't know which to play with first? And making the first cut in to a page is so hard? All the paper on this layout is from one sheet, and I had used a large chunk of it on a secret project that can be revealed after Christmas. When I had a pile of cut bits in front of me everything started flowing... no 'oh I can't cut this, I might need it later', no 'there's no point in cutting in to this sheet for that small amount'. So this layout pretty much made itself and then the next one, and the one after!
I had a string of semi circles sitting on my desk that I coloured up to match using some Shimmerz, Inktense and gold acrylic paint. (This may be my new thing! All of the 'bits' from Cameo cut files whizzed through the sewing machine to make a string of bunting. It makes all the little bits instantly usable, and I love the result.)
This layout is made using my Like For Ever kit- Oh So Lovely, and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and lace from Crafty Ribbons.
