Something old

I haven't taken any pics of much the last few days, so thought I would show something I did about 18 months ago, I had taken part in a jigsaw swap on UKScrappers and really enjoyed playing, so thought I would do one on my own. I bought a set of four puzzles from a local £1 shop and used the nine piece one, I wanted something for Graces room, that would stand the test of time and that she wouldn't grow out of, I had an ATC pad of vintage children images so used that, along with lots of cream paint and some lace and this is the result.

Grace loves it and so do I, it has pride of place on a shelf in her bedroom.

That is so sweet, in fact I think the theme for the JUly swap on SC should be babies and you should have me to send to (wink)

Love and blessing

Ooh - thats really lovely - would make a great new baby gift.
Very clever xx
Without sounding too dim - did you decoupage the pieces?
((claire wanders off wondering if she could use printouts of photos...))
