THE CREATIVE TYPE (AND IT WON!!!!!)
The Creative Type set a challenge to use Retro!! It sure was a challenge for a shabby chic-er....but this is why I try to step out of my zone - to experiment other styles and ideas....I couldnt resist distressing my edges....I really really tried hard to leave them alone....but there you are....cant take the 'worn' look out of me! LOL
It was such a thrill to see this LO on the site!! - IT WON!!! YAY!!
CHATTING ABOUT SHABBY CHIC...
Over at Scrap Therapy, we've been chatting about the why's and wherefore's of shabby chic. I've even uploaded this LO as a step-by-step in the thread, so if you'd like to create this LO - click here (scroll down past the chat a bit)
I've used the delicious Daisy d's papers which I'm totally in love with. Luckily Lee-Anne was able to get many of Modern Romance and Chloe Marie (and a little bit of Beacons Hill) in!! I love it because it oozes shabby chic! If you want some - you can get it here

7TH FEB JOURNAL PAGE It was fabulous to see Billy Elliot (the movie) on TV. I saw it at the cinema when it first came out years ago .... and enjoyed it just as much again. Doesnt the photo make you want to run, skip and jump!
8TH FEB JOURNAL PAGE This is the back of Hannah's T-Shirt for the stage production she's rehearsing for at the moment! Pirates of Penzance! She has very long rehearsal days and its pretty hard going. She's the youngest in the cast - and she's doing amazingly well!
