Dusty Attic

Hi All

Hope you have all had a fantastic Queens Birthday weekend - great one for staying in doors and playing!

I have done NOTHING this weekend 3 days of R&R didn't even get out of my PJ's on Sunday until lunch time how bad was that!
I did get to have a little play and have one project finished and two more half done just waiting on a couple of bit's and pieces to finish them off with.
But here is a journal that I have completed using the Dusty Attic frame - gosh I LOVE their products so versatile and easy to use. (and many more on the way)
I have inked the edges of the frame and then went over it with Rock Candy disress paint by Tim Holtz - hard to see in these photos but I think it looked great!

The paper is Prima the flowers some are home made and the others are just the rose buds that we stock in store (PS LOADS more on the way - new roses and flowers and heaps more leaves - very exciting).
The little monarch butterfly is a Martha Stewart Punch - we have a few of these in stock but you will need to e-mail me for these as they are not loaded in the store and as we only have a few it will be first in best dressed senario. 

Also on Wednesday we had a visit from Tracy - another great example of how through blogs and web sites you can make new friends, Tracy's blog is on my google reader and while her work brought her down our way (she is from the North Island) we got to go out for tea and then come back home here for Tracy to have a little shop (shhh hopefully her hubby doens't read her blogs) and also Tracy brought her copic pens for us to have a play with at colouring in.
Now while I am not a convert with the copic's I think Jo might be keen too!
Thanks so much Tracy for making the time to come and visit us and let us have a play with your copic's!

Hopefully with having an extra long weekend (I have Tuesday's off work) I will get to have a bit more of a play tomorrow and get my scrapbook page finished! 
You know - sometimes work just gets in the way!

Hope you are all staying warm :-)

Nothing wrong with staying in your PJ's - I just stayed in bed - lol
