My new friend

I've been spending time playing with a new friend the last couple of days.........according to a certain thread on UKS (you know who you are), she gets about a bit, but never the less, when she turned up chez moi I was nothing short of hospitable towards her and we got on great guns. I am of course talking about Pheobe, the new line from Basic grey - and here are the pretty things we made together........lol..... I added them to my slide show above too as they're a bit bigger and more visable on there.
Now please...........personally, I thought that the title for this LO about the cupcakes I made for Lee on Valentines Day was a little cheeky, a little tongue in cheek. But when my mother and sister saw it, they were of the opinion that "Love Muffins" is a phrase bordering on pornographic. Forgive me if you are offended, however I like it so there!!!!!!! Just an ickle bit of one of the Pheobe papers on it, but lots of other lovely things, like the Cupcake tag which was on my birthday present from Gems (that inspired the oclour scheme), some lace trim and lovely white rub ons - the brand of which escapes me right now! Also used some freebie velvet stickers that came with a mag - thought they looked cute for this page. It's actually based on a sketch from the February issue of SI, which helped it come together really quickly. My "muffin" stamping (lol) went a bit skewiff though - but not much could be done 'bout that. What's stamped is stamped.
My second page, "Signature Scents", is a reminder of how inspiration can strike in the strangest of places! I think you'll know who you are too lol! It looks better in real life - all straight and everything, honest g'vnor! Just lurve lurve lurve these papers - think they are my favourite from the collection. Got to use my Heidi Swap journalling spots that I've been hording for a while too, and a yummy pink felt flower that I added a crystal brad to the centre of. This was also based on a sketch, one I made from a LO I saw in what I thought was the Jaunary issue of Creating Keepsakes but I can't for the life of me find the original LO again to make a correct reference.Anyway - took some cool photos to use for my SW Crop class today, just waiting for them to dry and then I can make a start on that little lovely.................nothing like the last minute eh?!
