A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Scribble & Scrap # 14 - Anything Goes

Happy Sunday Everyone! Another fabulous sunny day here in the South East - hope it's warm and bright wherever you are too!

Guess what?  It's time for another ANYTHING GOES Challenge at 

Our challenge winner will receive a £15 voucher to spend in the Scribble & Scrap Shop, however, if the winner has used a Scribble & Scrap product, the prize will be raised to a mahoosive £20.  Top 3 also win a very generous £5 voucher each too!  How cool is that?
Please check out the RULES to be in with a chance of winning!

For my post today, I had sooooo much fun dressing up a tissue box holder.  I have made this as a birthday gift for my fabulous boss ..... hope she likes it as I do so want to keep my job ;)

This is a picture heavy post .... hope you manage to stay with me to the end LOL
I decorated each side of the box with some gorgeous Scribble & Scrap digital papers - Vintage Paper Set 1 being the 'base' paper merged with Grungy Florals - Natural for the centre circle on each.
I have popped a mini 'feather boa' around the top hole to tie in with the gorgeous gal I've used - okay, so my boss may get feathers on her nose when she wipes ..... but they'll be pretty feathers ;)
This adorably cute image is called Lola Cabaret and can be found in the Artbymiran shop HERE.
I just had to have this little doll .... not only is she uber cute, she also has the same name as my little granddaughter - minus 'cabaret' of course! Heehee!
I have decorated the left side of the box to mirror the right - using a mixture of all of my favourite things to embellish with.  Buttons, pearls, die-cut butterflies, flowers, pearl flourishes and lace - keeping enough space free to show off the beautiful papers.
The back has been kept to a bare minimum
 so it can be put against a wall, if my boss so wishes, without squashing anything :)

Lola has been coloured up with Copics in the following:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E21, E04
Hair/Dress/Stockings:  C0, C1, C3, C5
Skirt/Shoes:  E33, E31, E51, E50

Items used:  Pearls, pearl string, buttons, pearl flourish - all from the Hobby House
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace & 'feather boa' - from a gorgeous little shop in Windsor
Tissue Box - from 'Make It' craft event (MDF Man)
Various die-cut butterflies and doily
Glitter card from stash
