Some Indie Girl Goodness

Well, I finally tore myself away from Restorations, just long enough to play with some more Indie Girl. The perfect line for this vintage effect photo of Diane and Gus.

I wanted to document just how hopeful he always is that his human family will remember him before taking the last bite. Diane and Gus have a history, as he once nipped her leg a little when he got just a little too excited about her eating chicken. Poultry brings out the worst in Gus! ;)

I decided to hide the end of my stitched line behind a banner. Banners really do have a lot of uses!
This flower was made by using a Studio Calico rub on and then cutting the image out. Do you see that little pink ticket? I just LOVE it. I picked it up at my LSS. It is actually mounted on a piece of wood!

This store has a huge wooden cabinet with many drawers and each one contains things like this....

or this.....

I have to seriously go in there one day and just spend about an hour going through all the goodness in there. The stuff is a bit pricey. I paid $3.75 for that ticket!! But I can rationalize it..... sometimes, that little bit of goodness just adds such originality to a LO. The perfect touch if you will. ; Gee, I hope the big guy buys this line! ;) LOL He is actually my biggest enabler of my scrappy addiction!! :) He tells the ladies at the LSS that he just buys me what I want so I stay downstairs in the studio. He then adds that he will throw me down a granola bar once in awhile and make the odd cup of tea for me to keep me hydrated! ;)

So here is the sketch that I used. Another great one by Helen Croft!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day and enjoying some great fall weather!!

Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
