Creative ups and downs 2

I work in the conservatory. I make mess in the conservatory. I can leave things out in the conservatory. I love the conservatory. except when it leaks. Over my papers. and especially over my Elsie layout.
It is just about salvaged but now has a delicate curve to it.
On the up side I emailed it to Elsie and she called it "adorable". which i shall print out and stick on the back of the curved LO!
This morning I finally finished a layout I have been planning. We found this rockpool full of starfish close to the sea and wondered how they got there. Then we spotted some girls with buckets dropping more in - maybe so they would get taken out on the tide? Anyway I took this rather fetching photo and coupled it with some Crate Paper and fabby starfish buttons, plus some shells. Beads stuck on with glossy accents and the word starfish is alcohol inked acetate cut on the craft robo

{the layout will be back}
And the journalling is on some Maya Road chipboard painted and inked
Have got more to show and tell but my keyboard is playing up, the photos are pants and it is already tomorrow. Hopefully i can squeeze in a little blogging time later!

I really like this LO - BUT for some reason the photo of the starfish gives me goosebumps and makes me cringe!!!! Think it must me the memory of the fact I used to be the one playing with frogs and anything slimey - ooh not now!!!! Fab though xxxx
Glad you rescued your fabby "Elsie" LO!!

Love Bex
