My 2 Crafty DT. Reveal
"Smile"


Hi everyone, thanks for calling by. Just wanted to show you my 2 Crafty chipboard DT reveal. So much has been happening over at 2 Crafty. We have a brand NEW DT made up of some awesome girls, most of whom you probably know, I was also appointed DT Co Ordinator & then on top of that they had the most fantastic blog makeover. Make sure you pop over & check it out.

First up is this layout I did using one of the NEW 2 Crafty 
 11" Viney Page Frame.

I gave this chipboard frame a "faux" wood finish.


I was pleased how this wood effect turned out. If you want to know exactly how I achieved this, I have explained it all  over on the 2 Crafty blog.


I have also used lots of gorgeous Green Tara roses, velvet leaves & also I tied this bow with another of their gorgeous, wire edge ribbons. The wire edge makes the bow sit beautifully. Green Tara literally have hundreds of delightful ribbons.


Lastly, to finish off  I have used a  little

Next up is
"Magical Memories"


 This layout again features three pieces of yummy 2 Crafty chipboard.

A rare layout of myself. We were embarking on a cruise with some friends & we indulged ourselves with a ride to the boat terminal in a Limousine. This photo was taken  in the back of the Limo & I am actually sipping champagne ( out of view of the camera of course).
First piece is this chippie title, Magical Memories.
 Which I thought summed up the moment perfectly.


Next I used a fab little 2 Crafty chippie flourish, Fifi's Flourish
underneath my flower cluster & then finished off with this little frame,
Frames Tiny Henri's. 
I have simply painted these chippie pieces in a plain black acrylic paint
 so that  they would stand out on the page.

Well thats all for today, thanks for calling by. If you have a chance, pop over & check out the
 NEW 2 Crafty blog & we would love you to be a "follower".

Until next time.
