Feather Boa


Well the Olympic Torch finally hit Sussex yesterday, but i didn't bother going down to see it, as it was - yes you've guessed it Raining !!, i had a quick look on the live link and they had shut the main seafront road from Worthing to Hove, oh what joy that would have been trying to find a car parking space, as well !!

Today's image, i must confess i do not own, in fact a couple of months ago 20 LOTV images came free with a magazine and this is one of them - although i must confess i do rather like her and may have to look at buying her.  I've teamed her up with some very old Papermania 'Citrus Colossal Papers', i've distressed the image with Spun Sugar and the doily with 'Victorian Velvet', the corners are Memory Box 'Macarena Corner', with loads of pearls added, the lace is from 'Castleford' Market, Yorkshire (when i was up there visiting FIL).
