Shabby Challenge Layout & A Shabbyliscious Swap Gift...


Hello Dear Blogger Friends
Today I have Shabby Challenge Layout to share with you

"The Well Appointed House"

The Challenge...
Can be be found here at

Use these Images as Inspiration.....
To Create a Shabby Layout


My Inspiration was the Formal Lounge Room Setting and the Color Scheme...
Along withe Chandelier from the Nursery Photo!

Then....
You must use:

At Least 4 paper's
I have used Webster's Pages and an Old Book Page

Must have flower's either in the paper or as an embellishment
Flowers are both on the PP and Have used Prima and Mini Roses

Laces, trims, ribbons
Have used 2 Laces, Silk Ribbon and Crepe Paper Trim 

Sprinkling of Buttons
3 Buttons

And a Vintage Inspired Journalling Block that You have Created........

Here is mine - It's a hidden Journalling Block 
" A Woman's Work Is Never Done!!"

The last date to upload is the 31st of April and
