Lets get shabby layout

i stumbed across this cute blog featuring shabby challenges !!!! Just made for me right!!!! ANYWAY - I was inspired by the gorgeous pic they had up for inspiration - French ladies holding fans, so I used similar colours and folded the egdes of my paper like a fan - I like the way it looks - vintage papers, c some cute pink florals that Ialso used for my pail and here we are!! Teleah at the beach at Tangalooma.....TFL

Look at my cute vintage pail

Leanne over at Mad about scrapping asked me to do this pail up and I thought it would look gorgeous sort of shabby chic - so played with some pretty floral paper I got in Melbourne and then my fabulous much loved vintage sheet music!!!

This is the result - I even lined it!!!

and some more .....

All from yesterday!! Wahoo- the scrappin bug has hit!!
