I bet you thought I had n't blogged all weekend because he whisked me off to a romantic destination for our 10 year date anniversary? What were you thinking ... Prague? Paris? Venice? Rome?
Those of you that did n't think I had been whisked off ... probably thought I was totally engrossed in my fabulous present and could n't pull myself away? You were probably thinking ... Pink Diamond? Aston Martin? Hot air balloon ride?
I would n't blame you ... I thought 10 years of sharing your life with someone is a pretty substantial amount of time ... the celebration should be pretty substantial too ... Don't ya think?
I bought him a humungus clock ... that he loved ... to mark the passing of all the moments we had shared and all the moments we would share in the future. He bought me a paper trimmer ... because my old one squeaked when in use and it annoyed him!
I cleared my diary so we could have a leisurely and romantic breakfast ... he got up early so he could go and play ... erm ... golf.
I spent a relaxing day bathing in soapy bubbles and doing a spot of crafting ... he came home ... fell asleep on the sofa ... dribbling and snoring!
I waited for my invitation to go somewhere romantic for dinner ... with candle light and champagne ... he said ... I will treat you to a chinese take away ... What do ya fancy? No candles ... just trays on laps while he watched the TV!
On Saturday I bought a new pink polo neck ... you know ... as compensation to myself ... I kinda thought it would keep me nice and toastie ... if he ever does surprise me with a trip to the Ice Hotel in Sweden ... he said "You look like that bird out of Scooby Doo in that jumper!" Trust me ... He did n't mean Daphne!
I consoled myself in my craft room ... My intention with this piece was to go all Steam Punk ... it is in fact ... more steam flunk ... I started with the fab pocket watches and the bright background ... and then I got side tracked with the purdy Artistic Stamper butterflies!
You can see plenty of Idea-ology bits ... including the mask ... from Tim ... the man that can build an ice hotel any where in the world ... even in a temperature of 100 degrees ... with a pokey tool, some rock candy crackle and a pair of round nosed pliers!
The hanging contraption is bamboo ... threaded with eye pins ... which in turn have been threaded with beads and attached with jump rings. Don't you just love the colour of the word imagine??? ... well that is triple embossing with Copper embossing powder ... I then added the optical lens and the film strip ribbon.
Have a fab day people :0)
