Something from (Almost) Nothing and Blog Hopping

Well, so much for not getting any scrapping done. After I left you all on Friday, I popped over to Rebekah's blog. I've never seen an organised blog hop. And there have been so many fabulous projects! Thank you Rebekah! :D It also gave me a sudden wave of inspiration which, ironically, links in with Shimelle's Friday challenge for Something Out of Nothing. Everything on this page has been in my stash for 5/6 months and in some cases, longer. 

All the paper is from my scraps box and the alpha's caused me STRESS! 

I painted them several times, didn't like ANY of the colours, peeled it off (the wonders of acrylic paint) and started again. A layer of white, pink and finally blue later I still wasn't happy. So, once dry, I took a nail file to them ^_^ rather chuffed with them.

The ribbon flower, I can't take any credit for. It's one of Shimelle's creations. I've no idea how/if I can link the tutorial video here. But I intend to ask, I just couldn't wait to post this. It's out of my box by a long way and if you hadn't guessed, I'm well chuffed with it.

I must also thank The Boy for his patience this weekend and allowing me the time to create and play. Thank you sweetheart. I love you :D
