Lots To Do!

ZZproject20410

Right now ... that is the story of my life ... Lots to Do!

Mostly nice things though ... but still lots of them! It is also the name of a challenge blog ... the Lots To Do Challenge Blog :0) ... and this week the theme is Vintage. So I have made a screen with a vintage theme ... I ZZproject2a0410have used the new and very yummy Graphic 45 papers for the background. Aged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink and then decorated them to within an inch of their lives with Crafty Individuals miniatures ... Adage tickets ... memo pins ... Dew drops ... ribbon and Grunge Paper!

ZZproject2b0410I also used my trusty Bind-it-all and this is in fact one of my April DT submissions ... because I rather like it!

I bet you are impressed ... I have mentioned Grunge Paper and Memo pins and Adage tickets all without mentioning ... erm ... you know who ...

Well that is because ... I used Lord Tim of Holtz's Mini Classic and Shabby French stamps ... you know Tim ... the man that can understand what a woman wants even before she knows herself with just a doodad and a solitary ball from a piece of ball chain!ZZproject2c0410

I also used Dark Room Door Full Bloom Vol. 2 ... Don't you just love those tiny Frangipani flowers ... yes that it is definitely what they are called ... I found out last time I used them :0) I say ... I found out ... I think you lot may have done ... so Thanks for that!

ZZproject2d0410 Right it is late and I still have stuff To Do! If you came here looking for the Zutter Zisters Spring Blog Hop ... then you just need to click here and you will be magically transported to the correct time and place to leave a comment.

I say correct time and place ... the place is correct but if it is after Monday 29th March 2010 and 7pm EST ... then you are too late ... sorry!

Have a good Sunday everyone!

As i've been missing in action (see tomorows WOYWW post - I shaln't comment on every individual post as I usually do (have a weeksworth to catch up on), just want to say that all your stuff is great and so inspiring to crafters of all genres at all levels. You deserve to be named in line with some of the current crafting greats... you need to find a niche in the market and bring out your own line of something or other... aim for the stars.

big hugs
