Really, really pink and girlie!!




Before you ask 'what on earth were you thinking about when you made this?' please let me explain!
The challenge over at thisthursday this week is to make something you can see through. Well I racked my brains and then I realised it gave me the perfect excuse to go really girlie and use pink acetate!!
Its for my friend's daughter who is fourteen in a couple of weeks so I thought instead of a normal card I would do her something she could re-use or attach to her school bag.
I stamped, embossed, glittered and glued....basically just had lots of fun!! (Once in a while its great to act like a big kid!)
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.
Hugs,

Wow Emma this is fab, so much detail I keep looking at it & seeing something different. It's my eldest daughters 13th next week & I'm sure she would love something like this although I'm not sure it's 'cool' to hang something from your school bag that mum made (although last year she insisted I make her a 'Birthday Girl' badge to wear to school so I can't be tha uncool lol!!)
Can I ask where you got the pink accetate?
Sharon :-)x
