Temptation in small glass jars.

I I went to Tomorrows Memories only to buy a jar of white paint....I swear it's true. I can't even say that I wasn't warned that there was a heap of brand new papers and goodies, because I was. Seriously though, who can resist cute little glass jars....

...filled with the most yummy colours of flocking powder? Evidently, not me :) I also caved in to the temptation that is new Basic Grey, new My Minds Eye, new Making Memories and new Daisy Bucket. Yep, I was warned.

The good news is that I have used some of my flocking powder already!!! It was just what I needed to cover the chipboard which I needed the white paint for (that led me into temptation in the first place!) Continuing with my Riley challenge....

...with a very crooked photo with bad colour representation :) but nevertheless...A LAYOUT!
I found this photo in my reject box (photos that I have already scrapped, repeated photos,blah blah) and it illustrated my story perfectly.

This LO covers the last of July's challenges on the Scrapsidaisy forum
which is to use fabric on a LO, and to scrap a LO with an animal on it. The Peter Rabbit is actually machine embroidered onto calico, mounted on some chipboard, then remounted onto a chipboard frame which is painted then flocked with white flocking (just for you, Jo ...see, I really
did need it LOL). The navy spots is also fabric, which I trimmed with scallop scissors. The paper is called Cocco Periwinkle, an older piece from Kaisercraft. The stitching and buttons carry on the haberdashery-feel of the LO...well, that's the plan, anyway :)
Can I just say how perfect flocking is for baby layouts? It has a lovely texture...reminds me of Bonds Wondersuits, all soft and cuddly :) I am already formulating plans in my head for the pink and green!

I never knew that temptations such as flocking powder existed! Your baby LO is so sweet - I am sure the powder added another dimension.
