My Fair Lady – Margaret Ann Moffat

When I got my Scrapa DT box and saw this paper Authentique Classique Pretty I went ooooooh, I started singing “I feel Pretty” lol.  So had to call it My Fair Lady lol.
Decided I wanted paper bags but noooo didn’t have any left and as I get them from over the  pond from Scrapa had to rethink.  Make yer own doh.  So made a mini album, and found that I do love flaps and pockets when I put two of them together it was a big spine so left it at that.  Then during the construction – had  lightbulb moment – a mini within a mini sheesh one of these days I will stick to one idea lol.  So sneaked a wee mini into the back cover.

I only used Authentique Classique Pretty paperpad with a wee bit of bazzil pink cardstock – well I would add another mini to the mix, which means I only had tiny scraps left over.  Little cards methinks.  No waste in this house.

I also used the Wink of Stella pens, oooh these are sooo pretty and elegant.  You cannot see it really on the photographs but gives a beautiful shimmer.  I also made some stickpins (of course) from my stash.

P9080010Had some lovely pieces of paper after cutting up my papers so wanted to use them up.  Love the look of it.  Added a few of the stickers, I put them onto cardstock (thanks Gwen – craftylady) for the idea, didnt want to chipboard them so used cardstock instead.  GIves a lovely look to them.  Added the Wink of Stella clear pen to the lady and the words sparkle.  Love it.  I also saw on the top of the papers a lovely sentiment so hauled that in.

Inside of cover, decided I wanted some pearls, well it is My Fair Lady after all lol.

I didnt elongate the flap but used magnets to secure it down.


Used Spellbinders A2 Curved Bordes One to make a pocket
also had to use some of the Prima Color Bloom Cotton Candy spray, just love these sprays
I left some of the areas plain for large photos or journalling spots

Spine – I love stickpins so used two of them on the spine - P9070171

Ok its official, I am nuts lol.  Did a wee mini, inserted it into a chipboard pocket.
Left this one kinda plain cause I ran out of paper lol and as it was a tiddly wee thing thought I would leave it for photos.
