Back To School House Mouse Midweek Reminder Squeak!!!!!!!

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

here is your midweek Squeak to remind you that you are half way through your  


where the theme is 

Back to School or Office

with our fabulous sponsor




One winner will get a $25 gift certificate from House-Mouse Designs

here is my midweek creation, but do hop over  to the main challenge site to see the rest of the amazing inspiration from my sister meeces :)
I made a shaped easel.
I created the shape of the easel using a Go Kreate die set.  The base colour and contrast here is a lovely chocolate brown.  This is a mono card, so all elements are in the browns and sepia tones.  The papers are Papermania, some I purchased at the Doncaster Race course craft show.  The Memory box dies hold some Woodware sentiments from Which Craft, my Doncaster meet up with the HM DT :) The pearls and lace swirls and scrolls from Grimsby Crafts.  The fluted ribbon and string of pearls from stash.  The tiny pearls around the Memory box dies from the Hobby House and the little paper ribbon flowers hand made by me, from the kit I purchased at the Doncaster Race course

Warning from this point a little photo heavy
The image coloured in copics.
The return 

The lace and pearl scrolls and swirls

Do hop over and join us for the challenge :)
