So there I was looking in a box for something and saw this poor pathetic round scrap of paper, curled up and torn all tatty at one edge...
After extracting it (carefully) the sorry state revealed itself as a paper doily - was about to screw it up and throw it in the bin and then had one of those 'light bulb' moments...remembering something I saw on Pinterest.. (I confess to becoming a bit of a Pinterest addict - don't look at much except all things papercraft, mixed media, textile collages etc etc - in fact now I've discovered Facebook as well I don't know how I've got time for anything.............LOL)
So (Pin)knight in shining armour to the rescue of the poor crumpled doily, out with the guillotine and off with it's head.... well the tatty part of it anyway.
Some bits of brown and white cardstock, and some circular and scalloped nesties cut out for the centre, with some bits of die cuts (using a Memory Box die) all stuck to the centre.
Finished with a bit of string (don't know why - it just looked like it should be stuck on here), a punched out butterfly (suitably blinged) and a sentiment stamped with Sepia Versafine.
Oh and found a bit of the cut off die lying forlornly on the desk so stuck it on the bottom corner!
I didn't get to join in the games at the Playground last week - this week I made it without having to send (another) note with a left handed signature on the bottom asking to be excused!

It's a cold and bright day here - already been for my first walk this morning as I'm desperate to shed a few pounds (did I say FEW???) - another walk scheduled for after my calorie counted meal but a play in the craftie space in between!
Have a great day! x
