Vicky - me

Ok so do you want to know the other birthday............its for my darling daughter Natalie who is 22 years old today. I made my angel a gift bag for her new perfume we have brought her for one of her birthday presents.
WARNING PHOTO HEAVY!!
An 'Angel' for an angel right ;0) I have to say I'm so proud of my daughter, she has the most gorgeous smile, the most infectious laugh you can imagine & best of all............she is all mine ;0)

I made this shabby chic so it could sit on her dressing table when her bedroom is finished. Yes I know she cant use a dressing table but every young lady should have one. 
Can you see the Resin Angel, they really are so gorgeous.

The sentiment is Stempelglede 'Just A Note' stamp set & I stamped it in Cocoa Memento onto Pion's 'Sweet Baby' Tag. I also added Natalie's age '22'.

This is the back of the gift bag. I added a Shabby Bark Heart & the 'I Love You' strip going along under the verse is from a Maja Design paper. I've inked it up & crinkled it & attached one end to a 'Sewing Spool' which you cant see here :0(

The verse is a from a Woodware stamp that I've had a while. This verse is perfect for my daughter, she really has been through so so much in her life & has had to have quite a few fights to stay alive. She's one tough cookie this lassy is let me tell you ;0) I added Natalie's name in letters from Pion's 'Red Clover'.

The top left corner is a little glass bottle from my stash that I had filled with micro beads. The bottom left corner is a 'Hearts & Arrow' charm. The bottom right is the beautiful image from Reprint 'Cut Out Sheet - Angels'. As soon as I saw this one I knew I wanted to use it for Natalie on something.

I've used a clock from my Marianne die & added Tim Holtz 'Game Spinners' to act like clock hands. I've set the time to what time Natalie was born, 7.25pm

I added beautiful 'Shabby Ruffle Trim' along the top both front & back & the gorgeous lace is 'Lace Sophie', think this may become one of my faves its really so so pretty. The gorgeous paper is 'Pink Baby Blanket' 12x12 from the Pion Sweet Baby collection. All paper was inked & machine stitched. I also added a 'Clay Heart', WOC 30mm Wild Rose, 'Cheese Cloth'Shabby Seam Binding & Kort & Godt Rolled Flowers. For the shape of the gift bag I used Go -Kreate dies. I also added Gesso here, there & everywhere lol.

Well thats it from me but please pop on over see what fantastic creations my teamies have made.

Thank you so much for stopping by it really means a lot to me.
Tatty bye & take care mmwah
