I made this lace journal for my Son's head teacher 
as he is leaving junior school this year, 
She gave the most inspirational speech at their little graduation mass, and mentioned she like to journal, 
I have added some lovely blessings, 
prayers and quotes for teachers inside.

Craft for the Craic, June's DT

Craft for the Craic DT 
June Project
There was no theme this month, 
so I went with a seaside theme as I am just back from Holidays

I chose a lovely Vintage image of a little boy on the beach 
carrying a small boat.
and choose a seashell background, and the lovely blue plaid as backing papers
I've pick up the colours in the image in the background card.
added some tiny postcards,
Twine, hessian, and a selection of shells and dried reindeer  moss.

Dragons Lair DT Project for June

Dragons Lair DT Project
May; Theme is Let's Dance
I am late adding this card this month as I was away on holidays.

 The beautiful back ground papers are from the 
Our Family Collection HERE
I matted the paper to a red panel, and wrapped red organza ribbon across the panel and over-layed the red lace, securing at the back, I chose an image of dancing feet, which I layered onto red then gold card, and mounted on foam tape, Slipped half of a cream doily behind the toppers, and used the remaining half to line the circle mat, to make the cone for the bouquet.

I took inspiration from the David Bowie Song, Let's Dance
and added the lyrics inside.
Close up of the cone Wrapped Bouquet.

I made a pretty miniature bouquet with a selection of different size red paper roses and leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts
and added some black die-cut swirls.
I have a tutorial for the little bouquet HERE
Which I slipped into a little cone made from the Circle layer from the  Simply Soft Mats Collection HERE and added a gold bead finding to the tip.
