Bank Holiday Car Boot Sale Bargains

The lady on the stall at the car boot sale couldn’t believe I wanted to buy this …..

But it’s brilliant!  I’m trying to lose weight and 2lb a week is my goal … so I’m going to carry it with me EVERYWHERE ….. so I know what 2lbs actually feels like!  Oh ….. it cost me 20p!

Magazine Cover Birthday Card

Well, this makes a change from my usual newspaper cards - a magazine cover instead, featuring my neice Daisy.
Magazine Cover Birthday Card
To be honest, there’s not much crafting going on here, just me bodging about on the computer! Daisy’s favourite magazine is Sugar (never heard of it!) so I Googled it to get a general idea and this is what I came up with, using  Daisy as the cover girl.

I’ve  made  very simple decoupage layers with Mr Lautner’s picture, a bit of micro glitter on Daisy’s earrings and a smattering of gold stars. That’s it!
