week 3 in our Birthday month

over at SCD - where on earth is this year going? although I will be glad to see the end of this week - its been one dramatic incident after another! believe me!!

So, onto week 3 of the Birthday Month over at SCD...and its the lovely Dawn's turn to choose the theme, and she's chosen:-

Paris

Dawn has been awol recently due to having moved house - but, she's back this week!

So, here's my piece:_

The base is another piece of Tando white board - this board is really hardy! believe me! I coated the piece with terra and then heated it till it bubbled, then when cool I painted it and then added perfect pearls spritzing it with water. The little Eiffel Tower, and the wording "Tower Eiffel" are from a stamp by Invoke, the lettering was stamped using little 99p stamps! all the stamped images were coated with glossy accents and edged using inka gold! The little flower and butterfly are charms which were lightly covered with the inka gold. All the edging around the twinchie was done using inka gold (can you see a pattern appearing here?? lolxx).
Right, I'll let you into a secret - I did intend to have an "appearance" each week of the previous weeks theme, so last week you saw a flower, but, it also had a butterfly, and this week, as well as the current theme I've also got a flower and butterfly - I created next weeks twinchie last night and I can't do all four!! so, thats it, game over!! roflxx

This week we have the very talented Artyjen with us, as you know, or may not know, she's the current "Craft Stamper of the year Stamper" so we're very priviledged to have her join us, she has also, very generously donated this weeks prize too...so Thank you Sioux xx

Don't forget it's my class day over at papermaze on Saturday - for those of you that are coming please don't wear anything nice this week, its very messy!! roflxx also, please bring your craft mats and blending tools if you have them...along with normal crop tools! see you then xx

TFL xx
