Blimey! Blimey! Blimey!

SSSa1601 The weekend sure did fly by! I spent a lovely day with a great group of ladies at LB Crafts on Saturday doing the last of my Alcohol Ink Masterclasses ... then on Sunday I went back for another day doing ...

actually I cannot tell you that ... if I tell you I would have to kill you ... which would be a real feat in itself ... because as soon as the words left my lips ... or indeed my fingers ... either the wonderful Lin or Leandra would indeed kill me first!

Anyways ... the weekend has been and gone ... and a new week means a new theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show. The theme this week is Polka Dots ... LOVE that word ... it's a good word to say out loud ... go on ... try it :0)SSS1601

The prize this week is indeed another $25.00 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp ...

This week I decided to decorate a hinged frame ... after I had smothered it in THE Wendy Vecchi Polka Dots ... I got a bit carried away with the Grungepaper flowers ... so added a few more dotty butterflies for good measure. Every iddy biddy bit of stamping is done with THE Wendy Vecchi stamps ... all of SSSb1601 the embellishments are Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can balance 481 plates on a pencil on his head while doing an Irish jig with just a tiny attacher and a blade protector from a pair of Tonic Studio Scissors. If you tilt your head to the right and squint your eyes ... you should be able to see some Ranger Black Enamel Accents too.

I must away ... I need to go buy a wheeled trolley bag wotsit ... I may be some time!
