not got a necklace to go with an outfit-no problem

So, all dressed up with somewhere to go...disaster, no adornment for the old neck, what is a girl to do......I have spent too much on craft goodies (well, they are a necessity, a bit like food-food for the soul that is) so I turn to the craft room and.....voila!

I used a couple of microscope slides and a memory frame from Rangers. I cut pages from an old dictionary, coloured them with distress inks adding stamped images, a little bit of lace, some stickles for a small amount of bling (on one side only so I could wear a non blinged side when feel a little more sedately, well it may happen one day) and a touch of glossy accents. I then added words from the dictionary.

I have been waiting for a good reason to use this bird stamp from Paper Artsy, what better time for 'a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush'.

So, quickly added my trusty black suede lacing and then I was ready for the off.....

Now, where was I meant to be going.....
and why did I come upstairs.......

age is a wonderful (but often wondering) thing!!
Happy crafting
