Going cheep!!!!




Here is the finished birdhouse I promised,weather has not been nice for taking photos
but I think these might be best shots for today
The Papers [well a good cardstock] I have used is from CRAFT SECRETS PASTEL PAD
I cut all the papers for the octagon butt shingles by hand then stuck and sanded every piece[might do a RAK on how many I used later!!] The white doves are from HL
and the pink butterly also, The lace is from my stash of many. I made a plaque and hung it above with the little wording,I used one of the buttons I had in my stash again it looks like a hanger so was perfect for the job
I had a fantastic time working this,but with papers like this from Crafty Secrets who could not. I also sprayed it all with bubblegum pink Glimmer mist before starting
so the pink you see is not paint its glimmer mist
I hope you enjoy looking at it ,I think I will have to keep this for myself oh the paper so yummy and not often I get to play with pink!!!!!

Iam on playing with something now a card,Just could not get to sleep so I came down grabbed a handful of Bazzill,ruler,sissors and glue and went back to bed and started
what was in my head,got most assembled now to finish it off,need to think though!!
on where Iam going next with it lol!!!

until next time..........
