(Me &) My Girl

Post by thriftycrafter on Mon 12 Oct 2009 - 17:25

Lots of bits of bling on this, broken brooch, earring, necklace, a piece of pretty chiffon Mum gave me, velvet ric-rac,sequins in the stitching, not sure you can see them, etc, etc, Pic taken on our silver wedding boat trip.



And the cake I made this weekend, I wasn't happy with the lettering, particulary the way I'd set it out, but I was struggling with my back at the time so I'm just glad it was legible. She wanted it the same as the previous son's, which work out nicely as he had a short name so I put the other words in a circle around the name, this one wasn't quite so aesthetically pleasing, but hey, it tasted ok and that's the important thing.

It is a scrapbook paper, was 12x12 but I cut it down, it's firmer than a doiley, but obviously based on a doiley design, the paper is an off white/pale cream colour, very pretty.

I love this LO Karelyn. You are like me - lots of colour and bling.
Sometimes I have to stop myself from going over the top.
Great way to use bits of broken jewellery. What else could you do
with it ?

That's lovely, Karelyn. Very girly and I'm impressed with your cake too. I couldn't do that. Mr Green

Lovely LO, I like the lace, no writing on a cake from me has ever been legible
