Dare to Dream!!!!! at Grimsby Crafts

Good evening to you in the land of blog
Every Thursday I take a trip to Grimsby Crafts and most weeks I end up buying something new :)  Last week was no exception, well actually I went on the Thursday and again on the Saturday and both times, found some delish new bits.

So without making you wait to long, here is what I created with this lovely Nellie Snellen "Smookie"
This is a tilted easel with a magic pearl frame.  The base colour and contrast is a navy blue and the lemon papers are Papermania Capsule Collection Mono range.  The sentiment on the stand is MSE the one on the inner return is available from Grimsby Crafts and it fitted this image beautifully.  The beads are from a local department store.  The flowers from Hobby Craft.  I have used nesties through the grand for the image plate surrounds and the image plates themselves have been distressed with Tim Holtz Mustard seed and over stamped in the same with a little cosmic star stamp.  Marianne Creatables have been used to add the sprigs and scrolls around the flowers.  The ribbon is from my stash.
