Just Girls

A few weeks ago I went on a weekend away with my girlfriends to London.  We didn't go shopping just sight seeing, we were tourists in our own Capital City.  Obviously when going to London sight seeing the one place you go is Buckingham Palace, most of the statues were covered up for maintenance as apparently there is a wedding or something going on this month??????   The picture is of us girls on the steps of the Victoria Memorial.  We were all laughing because Kelly had made a comment about the bloke running off with my camera! 

Everything is from the Counterfeit Challenge kit.  The flower was cut out on the Big Shot.


I never ever do close ups of my LO's and I have to say it is one of my bug bears but I just wanted to show you what I have done here.  I wanted a strip of paper here but did not have one the same colour.  So I used extra wide sticky tape - the red one - and added flock to it.  It came out the perfect colour and added much needed texture to the LO.

Thank you so much for looking
