My little cupboard………

I bought this cupboard off ebay long time ago.
What will I do without ebay? lol!!
Wanted to scrap it…..
And I got a chance when I was going through TBSS design team call.
I needed to submit 4 layouts and one OTP.
I think many DT call do follow the same criteria.
Anyway,I wanted to make a totally new and a different one.
Hence my cupboard came out of my cupboard!!! LOL!!

I had some beautiful Daisy D papers which I have used here.
I love purple and was perfect for this Shabby Chic style cupboard,
with some lovely Prima and Green Tara flowers, Bella flourishes and Kaiser Craft rhinestones.
I wanted the worn out look of the white paint still present
and still bring in some color and texture.
I like the outcome of it.
Now I have to put in a rod to hang my necklaces and earrings goes into the draw.
Need to look for a tiny small rod!! Any ideas?

This was what I was doing the whole day today except taking my kids to vac swimm.
Swimming will finish tomorrow. Yay!!
Couple of more Yays!! coming from either side of me from my kids. lol!!
They are tired now. Need a break.
Next week we are going to a seaside town called Esperence.
It will be much cooler and lovely beaches to enjoy.
There are some white sand beaches and it makes squeeky sound when you walk on them!!
Oh!! nice photos will come handy.lol!! Can’t wait to go..

Oh here more photos.

I got to go to bed now.

Basic Grey Challenge—Sketch.

This is the Jan 09 Sketch at Basic Grey Challenge Blog.
Gorgeous Sketch for the card.

Here is my take on Basic Grey Sketch Challenge.
I have used Basic Grey Stella Ruby and Ambrosia Ebony papers.
The center piece is a rub on, I bought from Kmart. I have used it on a photo paper then distressed using my Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink and matted using a Creative Imaginations Signature Style Collection from my stash. Ribbons are from my stash too.
All papers are distressed and inked.

Loved making this card that I have made another one using Bo Bunny papers.
