They Called Them The Pretty Ones

Hello Everyone
This is an extra post I have scheduled before Sunday’s post which will be when I share the second of my Guest Designer post for That’s Crafty.
When June (Dezinaworld) generously sent me her beautiful Cameo images to play with I immediately set about decorating some shopping list pads, I believe this might have been November 2012, yes, as far back as then!  They were something that I made as little extra gifts especially at Christmas, something that is practical for the receiver.  Of course this isn’t the first time I have decorated such pads and it will not be the last.lynnemoncrieffdezinaworldimagesThey are variations on a theme where I have repeated the use of vintage French book text, lace (some of which was tea stained) along with MOP buttons, etc.lynnemoncrieff1The following two are images of older girls, possibly the above two girls all grown-up!lmoncrieff2I have some cards I will share another time where I made use of June’s beautiful Marie Antoinette image sheet but like I say, that is for another time.
If any of you have been unable to trace June since the many problems she had with her Blog, you can visit her and view her wonderful art at June’s Joy.
Until I return on Sunday, have a lovely weekend.

    How fabulous! I love the touches of text and lace, and it’s so interesting to me how just the positioning of the lace makes quite a difference… of course you have such an amazing collection we could never tire of the patterns, colors, sizes, etc. Love these lists!
