oh kayla your such a funny pooch

HELLO EVERYBOBS!!! thought id share another funny from kayla.. im gettting ready to go of on my jolly hollies soon and yesterday brought down the cases ready to start packing.. it reminded me of this time when my dearest other half was packing to go to visit his family.. kayla took one look at his bag and decided he wasnt going ANYWHERE without her tagging along too.. so in she jumped,,, neatly tucked her nose away so we couldnt see her and laid still and hoped for the best...
UNFORTUNATELY for her we sort of spotted her!! (we didnt have the heart to tell her we could see her bum sticking out) but we stood around the bag saying ohhhh wheres kayla gone?? and each time she would shiver slightly (probably worried in case we noticed her hehehehee)...silly kayla

My £1 bargain......

Hello everybobs!! today i want to share with you my bargain find of the week!!  On passing my local charity shop on the way home from work i spotted through the window a rather sad and lonely looking wooden rack....  then looking at it again with my crafty eye i spotted a bit of potential there as somehing to put my distress ink pads on and other bits n pieces.....  so £1 lighter in my purse I trotted off home with it.

I thought the shelves looked a bit 'bare' and although the wood looks quite good in the picture it was really quite rough.  So I asked my buddies over on Docrafts wether I should have a go at decorating them or not and they were split 50/50 some said leave it some said go for it... so out came the crackle and the paint lol...

well 3 hours of fun later (with a break to cook and eat ) here is the finished result!!
First of all i stuck some heavy duty card underneath the holes to block them off and built up some dividing walls from the same card.
Next i painted the whole thing with some matt metalic antique gold paint. when dry i painted the top with Tim Holtz disress crackle paint (picket fence) and left to dry and crackle.  then i added a touch of lace to the shelves and a flower here and there and TADAAAAA my NEW ink pads and distress paint rack!!
not bad for £1 huh xxx
