Just 'cause :)

A LO just because...doesn't seem to happen very often! LOL
My gorgeous Chari Beth :)
Some fairly old photos...as I was scrapping them I just kept focusing on her cute little chubby cheeks! She seems to have grown up so much in the last few years!

I just love these epoxy flowers layered on top of lace and bigger flowers!
And lots of layering of paper to give dimension and texture!
When making these shabby, vintagey kind of LOs I often struggle trying to find a good neutral alpha to create the title. This time, I made what I have here work!
I bought these Thickers a long time ago. I'm going to blame Lauren ;)...I think I saw some on a LO she did aaaaages ago, and loved them. I still love them, but they really haven't worked for any of my pages.
So i wrapped them in twine!
I think I kind of like the rough, shabby look they have!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Love the shabby chic look of this one Kirsty. Your alpha look amazing and what a great tip for alpha we no longer like. Darn those impulse buys ;)

Did you just adhere glue all over the alpha and then wrap it up?
