Well I'm back from my little holiday. We had a lovely time, riding through the woods on our bikes, even a bit of off-roading, thanks to the men, typical. We tried our hand at Archery, which I enjoyed but wasn't very good at, I just got it right one shot before the end as the Trainer advised that I was holding my hand too low. My younger sister was a dab hand at the Archery, hitting the bulls eye several times, I think she must of done some training before we came away, lol.
Thank you to all that have visited my blog whilst I was away and leaving me comments, I know it takes time and I really do appreciate each and every one.
The theme today at LLC is the lyrics from "It's a Wonderful World". I have chosen inspiration from "Trees are GREEN" and "red ROSES too", so I have used green and roses in my lace book as well as the papers. I'm sure you are all familiar with the new collection by MayaDesign called Sofiero, aren't they beautiful and how can they make this collection a limited one, are they mad. Anyway it will come as no surprise to you today that I have used 3 papers from this collection to make my lace book. I have been dying to make one of these books ever since Elin posted hers, soooo gorgeous and inspirational, thank you Elin. Hope you like my version....
I found the vintage pages on Pinterest, aren't they fab and if you want to print them too, head on over to my Pinterest where you will find the link. I printed several and cut the front and back of the book out of mount board and made the pages for the lace out of cardboard so that I could pin the lace in if necessary.
The dress is made out of 3 of the MayaDesign Sofiero papers, links at the bottom of the page.
I used 2 inch book rings so that I could put all those scraps of lace somewhere handy too.
Here's a picture of the book before I added all the little scraps of lace that come in handy to tie on tags. You will also notice the Melissa Frances resin corner on the right hand side, love these.
And here's a peek at some of my lace collection.
