Trying to look outside the box!

Now people who know me well know that I don't do frou frou. Don't get me wrong I like girly things....afterall I am a girl!
Quite a few years ago I won in a raffle the Bookatrix board. I have used it a couple of times but to be honest thats it really.

Whenever I have seen the Glitter Girls demoing I like the ideas they give but really the whole glitz, tons of glitter, and overload of mirri board just don't do it for me and when I look online for inspriation it really is glitz!!

I do like the idea of the book type card especially if you have a special occasion coming up. So with my close to being 13 boy in mind I set to work yesterday on this card. I wanted something which could be displayed easily so came up with an idea of combining a Bookatrix card with an easel format and hey presto!!!!!

I also used up some Basic Grey stash which I have had hidden in a box for ages - my resolution is to use what I have before i buy more. As Harry loves dinosaurs a little the Archaic set was perfect :)

Just to also add that I did cave on the buying thing yesterday and Tim Holtz's TSV somehow ended up being ordered - not sure how that happened????
