It was a sandpapering frenzy!

Such a good day I said before the emphasis was on Vintage, but hopefully with a Summer theme.. how do you think I did?

I wanted to use a really busy paper but everyone (Linda and Emma to be exact) laughed at me, so I got sensible and subtle (neither lies very comfy with me as a natural state!) and used a distressed sand cardstock and featured lots of cuttlebugged and sanded whitewash core papers, also a lovely wordy piece from the Martha Stewart paper sent over from the States by Michele.

It was a real experiment for the Newquay title (as you may be able to deduce) I used gesso primer on the letters and paper, then moved the letters down and recoloured them, and actually I think it worked.. Most of us also enjoyed this little pocket affair which I made out of more embossed and sanded core paper and hid the memories and chat I don't want everyone to see!

I am hoping that 'Anonymous' has stopped stalking me with his Spam now, but may have to put verification back on if it comes back.. I just can't buy any more over the counter drugs or Louis V handbags girls!! ;-)
