Papertake Weekly Peggy Loves Vintage ;-)

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge Dawny P has made us this lovely sketch to follow AND as the challenge is being sponsored by Peggy Loves Vintage all the DT (and me) were given a fab image to use too !! I can't wait to see what images the DT got to use :-)

I have never used pre coloured images before and I must admit I wasn't sure about it at first, also I am not very confident at the vintage look so it was quite a challenge for me !!!

I printed the image 3 times and decoupaged Santa, his lantern and his sleigh bells :-) The papers are from a Funky Fairys Papercrafts Lets Get Traditional Christmas set

I just added glitter and fancy die cut corners and that was it :-) I did try to add ribbon and gems and things but nothing looked right so I just left it simple :-)

Thanks for looking,, please leave a comment so I know you've dropped by ;-)

I'm Back ;-)

Hi everyone I just got home from Holland :-) I had a fabulous time staying with my sister, Denise, and her family.

The highlight of the week was meeting Ria at the craft fair in Utrecht :-) It was just sooo nice to meet her and we got along really well,,,old friends :-) She really took care of me too ,,, she knew where everything was and translated everything for me ;-)
We had a fabulous time shopping ,,,, spending far more than we should ,,, but it was alot of fun :-) Ria MADE me buy loads of goodies ,,,some decorative frames ,, a bit like nesties ,,,, loads of flowers , stamps, papers ,,,:-) I might take a piccy later to show you but they're still in my suitcase at the mo ,, and the combination lock won't open !!!!!ughughugh
Thanks Ria you were a star x x We had alot of fun and I am sure we'll meet again,,, maybe at a craft fair in the UK !!! :-)

It was lovely to meet a few of you from blogland too ,, Jacqueline,Paula, Thea and quite a few more ,,, big waves to you all x x

While Ria and I were shopping Denise joined in a workshop and made a sculpture ,,, unfortunately I didn't take any photo's of the finished article but it was really impressive !!!

I had a lovely time but it is nice to be home too ,,, Jessie gave me a lovely welcome home as did a few of the cats ,, the others didn't look as if they were bothered at all ha ha ha :-)

Will pop round and see what you've all been up to while I have been away ,,,:-)
