I follow the 'Lets Get Shabby' Blog but have never submitted anything but this time I thought I would. Challenge # 24 is to Create a project based on a favorite memory or photo from YOUR childhood. Welcome to my blog anyone visiting from Let's Get Shabby.
We always enjoyed holidays when we got together with our cousins and spent lots of time planning and performing our concerts for the family. I learned the piano for four years (unfortunately I didn't keep it up) as did my cousin so we got together to play a Duet - 'The Can Can'. We would practice and prepare (curlers in hair and all), sell tickets and buy goodies to sell to our parents and siblings at 'half-time'. Great childhood memories.
Papers were Fancy Pants. I copied the actual music we used to play and distressed it. Flowers are Prima as well as some of the lace and packaging. Other items used were lace, ric rac, ribbon and beads.
The journalling was printed onto a Grafix Rub-onz and then rubbed them onto the chipboard shape before using dimensional magic to attach the border of beads. Great memories. P.S. - That's me in the curlers.
Hope your weekend is going well. I had a walk around the garden today and guess what I found.
Spring in June !!! There is also blossom on two trees - one 'Southern Gem' does flower twice a year but I can't recall the other one having done it before.
Well that is all for today. Thanks for visiting.
Until next time .....
