Shabby Halloween

Something I made on Sunday - just because I wanted to.

I had a great lunchtime out with Lucy at the car-boot sale and bought a few bits and pieces. But Lucy had bought me over some lovely lacy trims and I just wanted to use some. Thanks for the lovely things Lucy.


I cut a tag from the TH die, downloaded this image from the Graphics fairy and changed it to a sepia colours. The muslin is a roll I have and I used double layer. I glitzed some of the image with glamourdust and added the trim, dangly and ribbons.



Have a wonderful week. I shall be working at school everyday and have to catch up with my own private school improvement work as well in the evenings. At least it is half term next week, so I will get a bit of time for me.

Take care and have fun.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
