The Chocolate Book in Vintage Shabby Chic

Before I forget, I want to remind you that Posh Designs has a cool sketch challenge on the blog.  There's a mystery prize to be won so be sure to play.  If you've seen the goodies in the Posh Designs Scrapbook Store, you know that prize has to be a good one!   The team has given you lots of inspiration to get your creative juices flowing.

Some of you know me on SCS and Scor-Pal, as the creator of  "The Chocolate Book", but you've never seen it like this!  Come to think of it...neither have I.  This is my first attempt at Vintage Shabby Chic AND my very first weekly blog column on the Posh Designs Blog.  You can see more photos and get all the details on the Posh Blog.  You can get a template and a tutorial there as well as on my header above.
                                                
 This creation also qualifies for the Ways To Use It (WT261) challenge, What's New? on SCS to use something new and the Try a New Technique (TLC263) Very Vintage challenge.  I used my new Webster's Pages Combo Pack Lullaby Lane/Life's Portrait paper (Love, love it) and my new May Arts silk ribbon.  (I will have some up on my Etsy site!)  I also used my sheer rayon ribbon in a new way...I heated it up with my heat gun.  If you know me well, you know that's waaaaay out of my area of comfort.

I've added lots of close-ups on the Posh blog so be sure to head over and take a look...while you're there, take a look at some of the projects the rest of the team has offered for inspiration.


Thanks for stopping by today...I really appreciate the time you choose to spend with me.  Be sure to check back...I think it's time for some blog candy, don't you?  (wink,wink!)
