Welcome again to my somewhat neglected blog.
Big plans, little follow through!
Anyway, I'm kicking off the hop today so hopefully you'll stick around and check out everyone. The full blog hop list can be found at the end of this post.
It may be a smaller hop this month but with such a wonderful challenge - #1 Jewellery Challenge: Use a piece of your jewellery for inspiration! Tell its story... use its design... and make sure to show us a photo of your inspiration too! - it's sure to be a good one. Make sure you say hello to everyone as you go along.
I was very inspired by the Design Team in the original challenge post and had several ways to go. I have a great wedding ring story, a few beautiful inherited pieces which would have been nice to capture and a slew of costume jewellery with a funny back-story too.
In the end, I decided to go with something less meaty and just make a page using up some of my last scraps from my Stargazer kit (layout #11!) to make a pretty page about one of my beautiful pieces: my Tiffany watch pendant.
It was a pure fluke that the leftover papers in the kit seemed to go with the photo so well (for me anyway!).
This was such a successful kit and I think there's enough in the box for one last layout. I'll have a go at that before the end of LOAD.
Do stop and leave me a comment to let me know you were here before moving on to Valerie (here). Why not share what your favourite piece of jewellery is. Or maybe you're like me and have lots :-)
