LET'S GET SHABBY Challenge #23

You can find the Let's Get Shabby criteria

here

And here's my sample LO
This was me!

The sponsor is SCRAP THERAPY

AND

speaking of Scrap Therapy,
I'm hosting a Blind Scrap there
(Easter Tuesday, 26th April, at 8pm - Sydney time)
you can find the details here

If you'd like to join us you will need:

for an Easter LO:
1 portrait 6x4 photo

I've cut the figure out of mine - but the full pic is great too!

3 double-sided papers -
You will use both sides of each, one needs to be quite dark as this will be your border. The others I have a mix of plain side and muted patterns in pastels. If you dont want to do double-sided, then have 3 single papers and scraps. All in all they need to work all together pattern and colour-wise to your taste.

Trims and laces
These need to vary in length between 8-10inches. How many doesnt matter but when laid out horizontally, one under the other, the depth should be about 4 1/2inches.

2 lengths of string or twine 
 approx 11 inch and 12 inch

Alpha or title
Mine is a chipboard title of 'Happy Easter' which I painted beforehand

5 small buttons

Embellies
Choose what will go with our LO, I've got a little bunny and chicken diecut (cut from a cricut I think) and a journaling spot if you dont want to write directly onto your LO.

Distresser



Looking forward to seeing you there!
