I left you on a sweet note in my previous post and a promise to photograph one of the 8-pound/4-kg-easter eggs that I had ordered to the office.
Voilà, here it is! I put a coffee mug and my specs next to it to give you an idea of its size.
People had been waiting all day for the eggs to be delivered and even cool grown up men got a special look on their faces when they saw what was in it :)
With a smile on my own face I have just bounced around in a happy dance at home; my page for the UOAS 15MAR challenge was among the 5 pages featured! JRABS aka Jennifer Snyder's gorgeous gorgeous page won and rightfully so! I am soooo honoured!
Here they are both Jen's winning layout and my Bettie girl:
We had a computer glitch at home yesteday when Elsa, one of our fur babies decided to play with the cables and managed to disconnect everything. It's taken until now for DH to fix it why I am late in sharing my page for the CSI #13 case file - "Little Lady".
First the palette
Here are also the CSI Coordinates for this Case File. CSI Coordinates can always be found at the bottom of the reveal threads. Scroll all the way to the bottom, where it says "Attachments." They are just above the reply box.
COLOR DETAILS & RGB CODES
- Twirly Taupe - (a sandy beige) - taken from the lighter parts of pinwheel - 229.220.202
- Krafty - (kraft) - taken from the darker parts of pinwheel - 198.174.138
- Breezyr Blue - (powder blue) - taken from the gem in the center - 177.224.232
- I've Got Sunshine - (bright golden yellow) - taken from the string - 237.215.91
- Green, Green Grass - (green with a hint of olive) - grass to the right of pinwheel = 143.149.81
Choose two (or more)of the following elements to include on your layout:
- Make a pinwheel (here are two tutorials on how to make them: here and here ).
- string/yarn/fiber/ twine
- map print
- Make a spiral flower, like in the center of the pinwheel.
- Tuck a little surprising detail somewhere on your page.
And this is what I came up with:
The papers are Prima Sunkissed.
I would have loved to write my journalling in a spiral, but my pages always have a tendency of morphing themselves, not leaving much space for journalling at all. So I had to put it at the back again. Here it:
Yup!this is me when I was 2 years old and sure thing, my handbag is there and my mummy's pearls are around my neck!
The pinwheel reminds me of a Finnish christmas pastry made of butter dough and prune jelly, it has exactly the same shape. My job was to place the jam on the pastries.
I have left the dressform undressed except for a piece of beautiful ribbon which is a gift from lovely Di Garling in Australia. I have reason to come back to Di under the last photo.
The pretty pretty dressform came all the way from South Africa in the parcel of many yummies from my dear friend Helen Tilbury.
Mwah to ya both Helen and Di!
GREEN TARA - Do you see that absolutely amazing blue fabric bloom and that ivory tulle dito with pearl centre? they are to die for IRL!
I now have a very specia offer for all international ladies who would like to lay their dainty hands on these and ooooodles of more gorgeous ones from GREEN TARA, Australia. They cannot be bought outside Australia as far as I am informed.
However, the beautiful and kind Di Garling who owns a scrapbooking store JUST FABULICIOUS in a place called The Entrance on the Central Coast of NSW Australia has promised to take email orders and has even registered a PayPal account to make it possible for us living in far away countries to smoothly pay our little beauties. She doesn't have a regular online store but has promised to help anyone interested to purchase the Green Tara flowers through her.
Here's the link to Green Tara's website for wholesalers, CLICK HERE
There you can see all their products and their product codes that you just pop down in your email to Di. Here is her email address which you can also find on her website: firstname.lastname@example.org
Aren't they just sooo pretty!
And now I promise that I have come to the end of this post. Thanks for your visit and patience my dear ladies!
Toodelipip! xoxoxo Eila
