I'm frantically trying to get ready to go on holidays - with so much to do before I collapse into my seat onto the plane!!   My family are heading far north to the tropical heat of sunny Queensland - and thats a far cry from freezing cold Tasmania (at the moment brrrr!)
We have housesitters in -YAY so all is being wonderfully looked after and my poor cats wont feel abandoned!
Anyway...onto LETS GET SHABBY'S
You can find out all about it HERE

This is my interpretation. 
A lovely little Mini-Album for a sweet Baby!

And your can win this gorgeous prize from

PixiePetals has also made up a
Pixie Packet!!

Lots to look at and see!!

I'm so terribly late getting this up on my blog...but if you hurry you can join in
See the sketch here
The twist is to add in 'old' somehow.  So I used this lovely photo of my my mother as a Debutante back in the early 1950's. She made her own dress. (as she did will all her dresses!!)

And a very sweet thank-you to DAWN who sent me this award!
hugs to you!!!

Now I've got to go PACK!!!

I love your work Mandy, especially that let's get shabby project! Now as you know "shabby" isn't my thing, I just can't seem to make it work, but this challenge ... paints, chipboard ... I should be able to pull that off, right??? Okay,the lace is throwing me off a bit, but you're not stating just how much lace we have to use right??? LOL!!! I'm definitely going to try and fit it in into my schedule this month!

Have a wonderful vacation Mandy!
Lots of love xxx Peggy
