Lets Get Shabby

This is my entry for this month's Lets get Shabby challenge :)
This month's challenge was super dooper easy, just make a handmade emby as the focal point of your LO. I used some paper pattern flowers (as shown on Julie's blog) and rolled up rosettes. I also made the paper lacey frill thingy around the edge of the LO.
I love this pic of Chari and my old cat Effie :) I got Effie when we lived in Canberra following a pretty horrible break up. Mum and Dad let me get a cat to dote on from the RSPCA. I chose Effie (or Pansy as she was known when I first selected her). I named her Effie after the character in the Aussie TV show 'Acropolis Now'...they kind of had the same hair styles LOL

Anyway...we figure that Effie is now about 14 years old. She lives in Mum and Dad's little courtyard, never straying, and I think she likes that her whole entire universe is only about 4 metres square LOL
She also likes it when my kids visit to give her snuggles and sneak her inside ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Sunday...I am off to play with my paper a bit more whilst Mick is out working...stupid fire season Grrrr
