Shoe Time xxx

I am sooo nervous peeps cos it's a bit scary !!!


No, not me card - although Bet Lynch is springing to mind every time I look at it and she is fairly scary in all fairness!!! And it's quite different from my usual style so I've deviated a bit here.

The scary bit is cos it's my first time at the helm over at Papertake Weekly so natch I am a bit nervous. But the girlies have all been so supportive and Steph has been on hand (loads of times - sorry chick!!) to help me. Thanks to everyone - I really do appreciate it all xxxxx

So our theme this week is 'Shoe Time'.
Anything goes as long as there is a something 'shoe-ey' in there somewhere.

So breaking with Piggy tradition, ie PMs and Glamour Dust - ohh it was tough for me lol xxx - I found an old Sissix die so I used that. 'Scuse the awful lighting here peeps - still as awesome as ever you'll notice re me pics (not), so some things haven't changed lol xx

That fab leopard paper is PP Tiny Little Leopard Prints - I LOVE it!!!

I have to give credit to my Dies To Die For team mate Katie cos I sort of cased the layout from one of her awesome cards. Well not 'sort of ' really, cos I nicked it fair and square!!! Hope that's ok darlin but I just loved it so much xxxxx

Now I can't take credit for this quote either and I can't for the life of me remember where I first heard it, but it makes me smile a bit. I just printed it out on the old puter, which seems (trotters etc crossed) to be back to normal.

The flower is just an EK Success punched one and the buttons were in an old bag of bits that were hiding at the bottom of my bits and bobs box. They're a bit funky-tastic I thought. Just the sort of thing that Richard Whitely (God rest him) would have on his blazers lol xxx

Dapper is the word me thinks :))xx


I've made a bit of a mess of the editing here and mucked up the frame, but you can see the dimension hopefully.

Anyway, I hope you can all pop over and have a peep this week. The team have done some fab work, as always.

And a bit of news for the future.

I've had some really lovely comments re my sketches which I am just thrilled about - thank you xxxx. I thought I might put them all together on a seperate blog so that they are all kept together. It might come in handy hopefully, so I'll be sorting that one day soon and will let you know once it's done. Hopefully by the end of the week with a bit of luck!!!

I'm off to rest my gigantic stomach cos we've just been out to Frankie & Benny's for our din dins cos Emma and Kyla are away until tomorrow. So Richard suggested we nip out rather than me having to cook - bless him xxx So Piggy by name and piggy by nature and I am stuffed (such a greedy girl!!!). I only had one course but it was mahoosive. I now look like Jimmy 5 bellies. My stretchy top is stretched beyond it's limits - and no, I am really not joking, cos it looks like it's had a face lift!!!!

So I am going to waddle slowly back to the lounge and chill - it's PJ time I reckon.

And chubby fingers crossed that the challenge goes OK!!!

Have the fabbiest of eves lovelies xxxx

Fab card Dawny, I love the black flowers with those gorgeous buttons, very stylish.

Great to see you back Dawny. And your card is just fantastic. VERY glamorous.

A blog for your sketches is a fab idea. I'll be looking for that.

Have fun with Papertake. It was one of the first and has been a model for so many others. I think people forget that.

And lastly, but by no means least - thank you. You made me feel very special and I cried!
