MME The Sweetest thing - layout

Good afternoon all,

Firstly, i just want to say a big ''Thank You'' for all the get well wishes.  I wont be running any marathons in the near future (not that i could have even before the op!) but i think the op(s) went well.

I am just nipping on here to quickly post a layout that i created as one of my DT projects for the fabulous Paper Lane. You can view Paper Lane and my blog post here.

I was very fortunate to be given this really gorgeous Echo Park paper from 'The Sweetest Thing' collection and this is what i made.  I really love the colours in this collection.

The chipboard words and cog were painted using the fantastic Martha Stewart acrylic paints. The doily is from Cheery Lynn and is coloured with Tattered Angels Glimmermists.

I made this embellishment by layering punched scalloped circles and adding a cameo that i had in my stash.

This is the final project.

Thank you for dropping by today and may i extend a very big warm and friendly welcome to my newest followers. It is fabulous to have you here.

Go to go, time for my drugs (painkillers!)  Will try and catch up with you all soon, once i can sit for more than 10 mins at a time!

Big hugs, Jill x
