Hitting the triple..quite a "feet"!

So with this one humble LO I have hit the triple. I have used the paint challenge from Sarah's cards blog and I couldn't resist the current challenge on Mission to Create and finally the picture was inspired by the fab favourite things blog. The shoes were a bargain find at a charity shop in Ilkley. However, I have always had a thing for stripy shoes and was always known at uni for my funky, bright shoes. The kids I teach always marvel at the crazy shoes I have. I have inherited the need to colour co-ordinate and so have to have shoes in every colour. I always get quite cheap ones though and rarely spend over £30 on them. So this LO celebrates that... The cupcake was easy to encorporate as it is my current obsession and circles are a fav feature of mine. The cupcake buttons are new stash I treated myself to on Saturday (as are the cute polka dot buttons!) I stamped with the lid of tin.
I had the usual thickers issues. They should put more e's and s' in their packs as they always run out first. I had to paint the last two with acrylic paint as they were originally lime green and didn't fit. Don't you just love the stripy lettering too??? That was a bargain from sat too. Notice Sarah's cards DT the use of paint as a mat for the title and also the liberal spray of glimmer mist round the edge.
I rediscovered my mini alpha stamps recently and so stamped onto ribbon and the journalling spot which I cut from polka dot cardstock. This pic is a it blurry, but you may notice the little owl in the bottom left hand corner (don't you love it Gem??)
And finally the whole LO in its full glory. It was one of those pages that just came together and I couldn't believe how many diff challanges I managed to hit. The heart is cut from cardstock and edged in acrylic paint too.
So what are you waiting for ladies? Get over to these blogs and get scrapping!!! Don't forget the fab challenge at scrap that poetry that has just started - time is running out! Scrap about your nearest and dearest! Right I am off to enjoy the sunshine!
