About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Good Morning All
Allsorts challenge theme this week is 'Vintage',  now this is out of the box for me, I really had to think about this one and this is what I came up with.  I thought a fan is old fashioned and ladies used to crochet to pass the time and they wore pearls and feathers.  I distressed all the papers to  look aged.
The fan is an image from Lilac Garden
Homemade pin and crochet hearts with pearl
Memory Box Swirl diecut
I inked all the edges of papers and card and images with my one and only Tim Holtz Distress ink and a brown ink I have had for years
Pearls and lace and feathers added

Sponsor this week is 'Lots of Buttons'
Have lots of fun with the challenge this week.
