All dressed up.

 For this weeks challenge over at Sugar Creek  Hollow we would like you to choose a line  from our 'Tick, tack, toe 'board. Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.

 Once again  I am making pages for a  monthly  swap with a friend. All the pages will be  4 x 4 inches square.
We both love vintage and shabby chic.
At the end of the year we will each  have a lovely book to look at and treasure.
 So here is what I made for January following the line which includes- Lace, ribbon and pearls.

On this side that  I am calling the front, the base layer  was embossed already, then shaded with distress ink.
The trimmings of green  open  weave  lace, cream lace, ribbon and pearls were from my stash.

 You can see a little lace  at the top of my page, this needs to be pulled out.
 The photo on the left  shows the tag that is hidden inside.

On the right is what the reverse side looks like.
The same base layer, a piece of a doily, shaded with Tea dye distress ink. All the images and the tag were made from Graphics 45 papers.

Thank you for stopping by, I realy appreciate all your comments.
If you are having snow, like we are here  in the N.E. of England, stay safe and warm.
