Ally Pally and Me!

Thank you for visiting. I do appreciate it very much and welcome your feedback
A big thank you to John for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit Welcome to the dance
Jacquie - I will have a go at paint splattering!
Mrs D - I will follow your instructions about linking, but there are so many people I want to mention on this page I think Blogger would have exploded

Today's post is one of three scrapbook pages I will do. I keep a journal of days out, holidays etc which stems from meeting up with some girls that we hadn't seen for a few years and none of the four of us could remember when we first met on a holiday that we were on. So I resolved to have a go. 

The boys! I so hate having my photo taken. I look terrible. They were very helpful, informative and extremely kind. The page was done in a rush, but I tried to reflect the booty I bought, a striplet, new scissors, pearls, dazzlers, John's butterfly stamp, Phill's mica/wax/mist etc ( you girls know what I mean!) and include a shot of the lovely stainglassed window I will probably re-jig it before I print it

And the girls! Both beautiful inside and out. Need I say more! 
will definitely do scrapbook page

Finally my booty...!
I missed out on the Shaded Lilac  distress ink!

  4. Hi Karen
    Oooooh, look at you hob nobbing with the crafting hoi polloi hahaha!
    Cooooo, you look just like my friend Janet but with shorter hair. I had to do a double take lol!
    There are a couple of photos of me that slipped through the net and got posted on some of the other girls blogs but normally, I prefer to be incognito as I'm in a Duck Protection Programme.
    That looks a goodly stash you have there.
    Look forward to seeing what you create.
    Best wishes.
