For All She Has To Remember (Somerset Life)

Hello Everyone
Aren’t the days whizzing past? For this scheduled post I am sharing an altered shopping list pad. The first time I prettied up one   was last year as DT art for June @ Dezinaworld and since then I’ve altered many, in fact I will have some more to share with you soon. This particular one is so special to me because it was published in Somerset Life (Summer issue), as I type those words I can still hardly believe it.
I had no idea it had been selected as a Creative Living Idea so imagine my shock when I was looking through this issue back in July and spied it! They photographed the pad so beautifully on a full page layout and on the facing page they wrote the most wonderful write-up but for this post I am sharing the photograph I took of the pad. This beautiful image is available from Trishia at French Kissed Postcards and because I couldn’t resist it I added a bow to her hair courtesy of  Oxford Impressions with Beauty coming from The Stampsmith’s Say It With Flair plate.It is the most wonderful feeling when creative dreams do come true.
Thank you for visiting this post and for the lovely comments you leave for me to read. I will catch-up with all of you soon.

    How wonderful to get to Somerset Life Lynne, so very very happy for you my friend!! Gosh, this is such a gorgeous shopping list pad, if I were to take this along whilst shopping, I don’t think I’d be able to get any shopping done at all! I’d be watching the beautiful image, fine lace and delicate details all the time 😉 Well done my friend! Hugs, Ira ♥

    So beautiful Lynne and so deserving of being published in Somerset Life. Congratulations.
    I was perusing through Stamper’s Sampler Take Ten this week and saw your name crop up and thought how lovely to see your work in print. (Have you seen it?)
    Take care.

    Lynne, you must work non-stop on these amazing creations, and your house must be filled with beautiful things. I envy you your wonderful taste and talent. Your shopping pad is far too beautiful to use for mundane shopping trips! What a wistful look the girl has…makes me wonder what she’s thinking.
    Keep on creating, can’t wait for the next post!

    Lynne, das ist wunderschön geworden, sehr romantisch und fein.

    Ja, ich liebe die neue Stempelplatte Dr Coffin’s Apothecary von Oxford Impressions. Und ich möchte sie auch gerne kaufen. Aber es dauert immer, bis die Stempel hier in Germany sind.

    Ganz liebe Grüße

    Hello dear Lynne what a gorgeous shopping list – far too good for me to write my shopping on THAT! No wonder it was published in Somerset Life – congratulations and you so deserve that. Love the little wall hanging also with the driftwood from dear Dorthe!
