Roll Up! Roll Up! Glitz At Gotta Craft

How do you make a coconut shy?


Show it two blokes who believe they know a thing or two about spin bowling...At least, that's the theory. But, hey, who needs a coconut when you are on holiday in a tent anyway?

When Sandra at Gotta Craft said she was going to send me some Glitz I thought that sounds pretty fancy and I wasn't disappointed. As soon as it arrived I was back on the old email sharpish saying please, post me some more bits. I like this stuff. I have the Scarlett papers (red, green, yellow, black, versatile) with some Whatnots and stickers. What can I say? The bags of Whatnots are some of the cleverest little touches I've seen in a long time. Ready made ephemera. A couple of these on a page and you'll feel like a thrift queen! Which reminds me: I'm finding this line a great match for some Jenni Bowlin  - that big green button is one of hers.

That's only the start. I've nearly finished another page about a set of nesting dolls - great colours for that too! Sandra tells me that this month's kit is going on sale at the beginning of next week. These papers won't be in it - but if you like this, I think it's safe to say you'll be interested.

Really nice layout, Sian. I love the colors, and you are the master of layering elements to make a scrapbook page look like a work of art. Well done!!! xo

Sandra said...

I must say I really agree with the comment from Deb above, you really do layering just so so well. For me every layout you do, tells the story without even seeing the words. Fabulous as always.

I got very excited when I saw the title of your post, and I wasn't disappointed :-) Gorgeous papers etc and gorgeous layout!

The Boy managed to win a coconut at the Scout fair recently. I have to confess that my pride was mixed with incredulity, but I saw him do it and I saw several people fail to do it!! Then we had to figure out what to do with the actualy coconut....
