Feeling adventurous :)

Sometimes it's good to be a little adventurous, don't you think? Now, let me just clarify here...adventurous for you and adventurous for me are probably two very different things!
Adventurous for me is using red and purple...together. On the same LO. (I can almost hear my mother groaning from here...red and purple together? NO! NO! NO!)


Adventurous for me is cutting up my old paper dressmaking patterns and making a flower out of them.

Adventurous for me is covering chipboard with fabric, sewing over the top, and then fraying the edges...yes, fraying!!! It is glimmermisting shipping tags and journaling strips! LOL...I think I may need to lie down :)
And while I was feeling adventurous, I added some more to my banner from the other day :)


I will leave you with the sweetest face ever...


...my darling dog, who tries hard to be in every single photo I take. Seriously, you wouldn't believe how many times I've had to crop him out of shots. So I thought I'd do a photo shoot of him all by himself...have you ever tried photographing a deaf dog? LOL...Clancy, look at moeee, look at mooee (a la Kath and Kim)...nup, it just wasn't happening. Maybe another day :)
Have a great one!

Hope you enjoyed being 'adventurous' ... it's fun to play! I love your flower, and your fabric covered letter, very fab... but your pooch is gorgoeus, I'm a sucker for a cute dog!!

Love seeing your adventurous side Susan!! Love it all - the repurposed dress making patterns, the red and white polka dots, and the shipping tags. Looks like a most creative day. My Mum always told me that blue and green should never be seen (not sure if she had an opinion on red and purple)!

Nooooo! Not the cutting up of sewing patterns! Noooooo!

Clancy is such a cutie, very photogenic! We named our dog Ebony for 2 reasons - because she's black, & so I could say "Ebony, look at Moi".
