What a bad blogger! WOYWW and A Pink Glittery Tag!

I Don't Do 'Pink and Glittery'. This is a tag I made for 'The Stash Buster' competition on UK Stampers, I really don't do 'pink and glittery' but I did have loads of pink glitter (it must be at least 15 yrs old!) so I thought I would 'step out of my comfort zone' and have a go!
Well it started off well, I die cut all the flowers, dress form (painted it and attached all the trimmings) and decorated the tag, then it was glitter time! I covered all the flowers in 2 way glue and started to glitter tipping off the excess onto a peice of scrap paper, everything still going good until I started to pour the excess back into the pot, paper mid air nearly over pot and ACHOO the biggest sneeze ever!!! Think pink glittery mushroom cloud! I swear it was all in slow motion, I watched as the glitter came down, I was covered, the desk, the floor all had a pink glitter haze about them!
Well need I say I was not pleased, it took an age to clear up!
That night we had pink glittery tagliatelle with meatballs for dinner, the stairs, lounge, bathroom all looked like they had been visited by a fairy and everytime I moved I spread a little more around, even my hubby and son didn't get away without having a little bit of sparkle on them!


On my desk is a whole load of Hearty clay pieces, mostly faces, a few buttons and a mans chest! Why so many? Because I have learnt from experience that if I don't use it all at once I'll forget about it and it dries out!

This is one of a pair of earrings I found in a little second hand shop.

And here is what I did with it! It is a book mark. (sorry about the shine, too loads of photos, this was the best one!)
