The Crafty Crimper!

Hi there everyone from a very cold  London town! Hope you are all safe and warm and keeping well. The current letter for the Alpha challenge over at the Craft Barn is H. Now for those that know me this was a no brainer, come and see the word I chose:

Here is the definition but I have to say my clients usually turned out a little more stylish than these!!


I covered my page with acrylic paint and the stamp is a Judikins one that is part of a vintage set. I decided to add some texture and tried to create ribbon curls, not altogether successfully:) The hairdryer I drew on card and coloured and cut out and the scissors are a metal embellishment that I gilded. I am enjoying altering this dictionary but wish I had managed to get a hardback as it's so difficult to make it stay open for decorating and taking photos!

We popped down to Portsmouth yesterday for a lunch date with Charlie! He almost ran up the hallway with his new shoes on:) Doesn't seem 5 mins since he was only taking up half the Moses basket! He was in great form and we had a wonderful day, I can't believe he will be a year old next month.

Thanks for visiting and hopefully leaving your thoughts and I'd like to welcome Aussie Annie who has very kindly decided to follow my blog.

Hi Val... love your page so much fun... I know what you mean about the non hardback dictionary I have a terrible time with mine, It's falling apart.... don't know how I'm going to get it back in one piece and in order!!
I'm glad I'm managing to keep up with the challenge ... I love it even if it does cause me problems and challenges but then again that's why I decided to join in.. bit of an epistle for me I usually keep things short and sweet.
take care
Suzi B xx
