Boot Clock

Boot clock

This morning I went to get something from one of my suppliers and saw this boot clock - well I have a thing about shoes and just could not resist buying this. I then spent the afternoon unpicking a lace nightie that I have never worn - I needed the lace and ribbon for my boot!!!

I have just finished my boot and I love it! Now I need to find a place to hang it.

Just Mud About You - Double Page

Just Mud About You

This was the day after Christmas, we were sitting at the pool and hubby dearest decided to start a mud fight - maybe he likes the idea of mud wrestling with me LOL! While we smearing each other full of mud, my mom took these photos. 

This is not something I would like to participate in again - All I can say is that this was a great ex-foliation!

Altered Box


Box 2

I found a whole lot of boxes at a junk shop for R2 each, and of course bought them all. These make great gift boxes. I used scraps of paper and decided to play around using foil  tape and the Cuttlebug. I'm not quite sure were you would find foil tape - I got my roll from hubby.

I covered my pink paper in foil tape and embossed it using the Cuttlebug. Then sanded the hearts and this is what happened (see picture No.2).
