Guest Designer Spot at Sugar Creek Hollow

It's fabulous to have been asked to do a guest DT contribution for Sugar Creek Hollow this week. In fact I was asked before Christmas but it was when Becca was in hospital and I just couldn't spare the time then, but my thanks to Cec and the girls for having me join them now. It really is an honour.

The theme this week is Vintage Hats, Shoes and Purses and you can choose to feature just one all all three of these items.


 As I am definitely into the Graphic 45 papers at the moment, I chose hats for my focal point and made a chipboard tag, die-cut from the Tim Holtz tag and bookplates die.











All the papers and elements are from G45 papers except the little Prima flowers. The sentiment is computer generated.

The central lady in her gorgeous hat comes out of the little pocket and can be written on the back to send someone a message or a birthday/congratulatory wish. 



I covered the back of the tag too with the G45 paper, keeping it simple but finishing the tag off nicely.


















So if you're up for making something in the hat, shoes or handbag line than pop over to the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog and look at all the other fabulous inspiration there is for you to see.


Thanks again for having me girls.
