Something a Bit Different!

ZZproject1a0210

Oh yes ... definitely something a bit different for me anyway!

It's a 6X6 mini book scrapbook album jobby! I loved making it too ... still have all the pages to fill ... but I have started planning them and the pages are all covered ready to be adorned with memorabilia of days gone by of mostly me and a bit about John ... if there's room :0)

Talking of John ... he read the wording ... shook his head in a knowing kind of a way and smiled ... trust me ... he knows how lucky he is *LOL*ZZproject10210

I used Zutter 6X6 covers; 1" black Owires and some very sturdy black card ... all covered with Rusty Pickle papers that I have stroked for quite long enough! I even doodled ... very brave me thinks and of course I am entirely incapable of making pretty much anything without a grunge paper rose or some grunge paper on the project somewhere. Do you know I love Mr Tim? ... the man that can traverse large cities mid air with just a piece of craft wire and a paper tag ... not even a manilla one! I used the Studio 490 rose stamp** and I spritzed the rose after it was made with glimmer mists ... I quite like that slightly blown look that gazillions of people think you should avoid ... just shows that it takes all sorts!

Hey Ho! Laters X

EDIT: Good grief I have had to return because I have lied ... I did n't use **Wendy V's rose stamp at all ... I wanted a smaller rose so I used the Artistic Stamper Flower Power middle sized flower stamp ... sorry everyone ... I shall wash my mouth out and try not to lie again :0)

Linda you are mad! And very talented. I love it - try not to fill with pics of Tim however - well not at the expense of your OH anyway - just leave it at his products!!!

Would you say that a zutter thingy was a good investment - i wouldn't mind one.
