IIFA?


Thanks to a goodybag of undeserved treats from Paige, this layout of Miss Dunnit's post-prom first rose came together in about 5 minutes flat. Don't you just love it when that happens. And don't you just love that printed sticky note? The sort of stash that once was stationery - the reason a lot of us wander around Staples and WH Smith with our minds in alert state 'total'. I used Basic Grey Wisteria - BG is a thing for me, like Linda said about the Magnolias and Tildas in her post on Wednesday - it's a marmite thing. I either love or don't like at all the BG releases. Sadly for my financial situation, I love more than I don't! It was no reach for me then, to opt to use BG as my base kit for the 2 Scrap Ladies event. It works with everything for me. I expect other lines would too, but I get tunnel vision! Linda also asked if I could show some of the papers I bought yesterday, and because Blogger is happy to oblige, so am I:



The middle shot is the reverse of the Basic Grey and the end picture is the Cosmo Cricket...don't ask me why I didn't upload the photo of the backs. I don't know. It could be my terrible memory or the speed at which I'm being made to do things this evening. Miss Dunnit and I went back to Ikea today. To buy the things we'd seen last time and thought we could live without. She's all excited now that Mr Dunnit's home, there's more stuff to build! I have insisted on allowing time for another gourmet supper before they start though, so now they're champing at the bit and here I sit, typing like fury.

See this? One of five that are for sale. In their original state plus dust. £18 each plus UK P&P which will be the up to three kilo standard parcel rate of £7.06. Let me know if you're interested - email me from the button in the margin.

Oh and PS: more blogging over at 2 Scrap Ladies, if you're interested!

I've sat here going 'oooh, oooh, ooooooh' all the way through this post. Not good when I've been trying to convince the kids they can't have the pc because I'm working!! ;) Love your lo - it's so delicate, like the rose. Love those papers and love those drawers (?) can imagine so much for them but alas I must resist or face the wrath of Craig! Though am sorely tempted... I saw a much smaller (about sixth of the size that yours looks) 'thing' in a junk shop in Hastings last visit and have been heavily berating myself for not purchasing it - I'm thinking it would have been perfect to alter for my 80's swap dammit. May have to see if it's still there when I go back next week...

Love those papers ... Thank you soooooo much for obliging! The marmite wotsit works on Cosmo Cricket for me ... Either really really love them or really really hate them ... strange.

On another matter entirely I think I may want one of those printer trays ... but would I really do anything with it ... or would I just stick it on my bag ladyish pile of stuff to alter ... I need to think ... I may be back!

That LO has worked so well ....love it. I love most BG too.
I used to have 3 printers trays that housed DD thimble collection but disposed of them when we moved. I have seen people fill them with other nic nacs too like stones and shells and even the smallest stamps ... so I am tempted but I'm going to be good and resist. By the way I think your price is good as I paid about £20 about 20 years ago.
