4th page of my scrap book for Lindz

Having spent ages looking for an image of the lovely Lindz, was able eventually to get one from her hubby Mike. Had decided the colour scheme a while ago, but could not really get the idea to come together until my husband Matt suggested having a handbag and this opening for the photo. So with new idea a foot, and after visiting hobby craft (forgot to remember the mental note of save) created this lovely page. I used the paper from one of my stacks and then created a template of a handbag, I cut this out once for the base and a second time with a small flap at the bottom. I put my top piece through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder for the texture and then glued the tag to the back of the base bag. I now had an opening handbag. I placed her photo on some darker card and placed this in the handbag on the base card. I then added a silver platinum card embelishment and a silver mobile phone embelishment as this is what she has in her handbag. I used faux stitching around the bag and some pearls. I added another born to shop silver embelishment to the front of the card. I used my cuttle bug to die cut my cuttle kids letters out and then layered these onto mirror gold card, I used my craft knife to trim around the letters. I then placed glue on the handbag and on the clasp (again cut from my die cut tags on the cuttlebug) and loaded the area with glitter. Finally and probably not needed placed a fushia bow at the top right of the page.

I am pleased with the finished look.
