I just love this new digi called LEATHER BOUND by Barbara Jensen which is available at Stitchy Stamps.  This is one of her new digi's - so if you like it check the rest out!

To think this was just how I looked at one time - well what can I say it's true "you never appreciate it until you've lost it".  Getting nervy now will be 50 a week on Saturday.  Cried at 30 was OK at 40 so don't know!  Hoping 50 is the new 40!

Kept this design quite clean as I wanted the image to make the impact.


Prisma and polychromos pencils
Stickles glitter for dress
glitter pen

Pattern papers - paper stack
Black - WH Smith
Silver - Create and Craft

Dies used:
Spellbinders Nesties - use two ovals together to create the frame
Spellbinders Nesties - small die used to create clutch bag
Gem for handbag clasp
Different size gems for frame embellishment
Tiny gems to create bracelet
Ribbon and bow

Best wishes,
