House warming present

I don't think Paula reads my blog and if you do stop right now Mrs! Paula commented on how much she loved the altered canvases I did recently and I thought what a great housewarming gift as I was stuck for ideas. Instead of my usual trawl through Facebook to sneakily get out of focus photos, usually of drunk nights out I asked could I used her wedding photos! Luckily for me she had an amazing engagement photo shoot with such beautiful photo's it was hard not to scrap them!
She said she had no preference with the style, I was going to go clean and simple but a smudge from dirty fingers lead to other ideas!

I ripped the bum out of my jeans last week (another story) so instead of throwing them straight out I rolled a few flowers!

My new PaperTrey Ink dies, how fricking cute! Stamped the heart tree and covered in my best friend glossy accents.

Tim Holtz Itty Bitty Grunge set stamped in brown Vivid ink and  accented with glossy accents..of course!

I have another photo to do and if Eli decides to go for another 2 hour nap (only because he was sick and I am not wishing illness on my child but.....) I can get it done!
