Hey guys
This is the first of two posts today
This one is for

 I'm so privileged to be on this team for another term.
(Talk about nerve wracking reapplying and waiting to hear)
We have some fan new teamies joining and you can meet them all on the blog
They have done some stunning samples so don't be shy pop over to their blogs and say hi
Would be lovely if they could get some welcome blog love.
Ok so onto this new challenge
Shabby chic
I had fun with this one , this isn't my original idea so I cannot take credit for it I have used this template from the amazing  Terri @ Artful Affirmations , you can grab the template here

 Here is my effort

I cut the template out of card and covered inside and out with pretty papers , inking all the edges as I went, once the shoe was glued together I went to town with some scrumptious lace and bead trim.
I started with a lace flower cut from a wide cream lace panel, then I added the edging lace all around the front and back of the shoe.

Next was the ruffled lace & ribbon trim at the top front of the shoe, I put it inside the front edge then turned it around and added to the outside, to give the lovely double sided full ruffled look.
Then I moved onto adding the beaded trim &the bows.

The gem dangle (is that a word?) on the front is part of a earning from my broken/junk jewellery stash box, and to finish I added the hand made flower which I had cut from white card, sponges with Tattered Rose Distress ink the a touch of crystal Sticklers.

I hope you like it and maybe give it a go
We would love to see your shabby chic entries.
