Shine up your Layouts (& some cuteness...)



Chelsea had her 16th birthday recently so I was on the hunt for some little bits & pieces to supplement the camera that we bought her. I couldn't resist these 2 purchases for myself. I have ALWAYS been an insane Hello Kitty fan...always...

This little keyring now lives on the side of my bag & no...I don't care what people think...

Of course I kept the packaging to use somewhere within a layout...someday...

I bought this cheap eyeshadow...not for me silly...to use on my layouts...what??? It only cost me R25 (about US2) so it's worth a try as edging chalk...metallic edging chalk that is...

And no...I haven't tested it yet...but it IS sitting on TOP of my scrapbooking pile in anticipation...

And look what I discovered...Kitty is not only cute but functional too...not that I'd be able to see more than a nostril in that mirror but still...

I pride myself on being easy to please...it only took US4 to put a smile on my face that day & I'm still enjoying seeing my kitty on my bag everyday & can't wait for some studio time to experiment with my shiny new "chalks"!

Love Miss Kitty...and keep us posted on how the eye shadow works on layouts...sounds like a very cheap alternative.
