I'm back, as promised, with a new LO that I created yesterday that I have now managed to photograph and upload.. thanks for popping back to see what I've been up to.
To top it off, there is a hint of gold, so I included some of that too.. what do you think.. edible gold leaf on top of an ice cream.. too much?? No!! You can't beat a bit of decadence..so I went for it.. the whole hog!
and this is what I came up with... as you can see I started with a sheet of white card stock.. it seems to be my colour of choice lately.. and then I cut tiny strips of Authentique Flourish from a paper pad I own and included some of in my May Madness, CKCB, kit.
The photograph is from a very exciting night in my life.. and the word CELEBRATE is on the mood board, so I immediately thought of this photo for this challenge.
To explain, I have been an estate agent for over 20 years, and this night was an awards ceremony.. and I am so pleased to say I won three awards that night... including best overall estate agent in West Kent., so you can see why there was a reason to celebrate! Added to which, as my son has also followed in my footsteps to become an agent, he was there to witness the whole thing! I even let him hold my trophies! lol
All in all I look back on this night the best in my career... and I still have the trophies in my office as a reminder... those days are gone now as I have dropped to part time after a mini stroke back in 2012, but back in 2010, my job was all consuming.. so this really was a 'Priceless' night.. and it will never be repeated!
To finish the LO, I added a pearl swirl, flowers with gold embellishments, some gems and more pink pearls and I added a tag behind the photo to tell the story of the evening. Finally I added punch outs on three sides with a bit of mint coloured paper behind.
My friend Jemma, aka JimJams, recently told me she has a 'Book of Me' and so I thought I might follow suit.. thanks for the idea Jemma.. so this is my first entry.
Do let me know what you think before you go! Rather surprisingly, since my last post, and before this one, I made another LO today too.. so I may blog that one later on too.. watch this space!
