Sleeping Beauty

I suppose it was always going to happen..... now that I am a granny, I am probably going to turn into a scrap- booker too..... I have done the odd LO here and there before, but not very often, but I have a funny feeling that there will be more in the future......
This LO is heavily influenced by my two favourite scrap artists, Finnabair and Heather Jacobs
Thank you ladies for your constant inspiration!

  24. An absolute masterpiece... so clearly inspired by love - and what a beautiful photograph! The colour blending and textures in the background are extraordinarily lovely - and the Finn-style embellishing is so glorious in your hands - glowing with muted vintage beauty. Stunning! Can you tell that I quite like it?!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
