My guest designer project

Oops I nearly forgot to do this. A couple of weeks ago Susie asked if I would like to be a guest designer for this weeks challenge using vellum over on die cut dreams challenge, how could I say no. It wasn't until I looked at the challenge about an hour ago that I realised I was guest designer this week as I sent Susie piccies of my little booties a while ago, trying to be organised you see, lol see how well that turned out....not.

Anyway fab challenge and look forward to seing what everyone comes up with , the design team have certainly given you a variety to look at.

My little boots are from a pattern I found in a cake decorating magazine years ago and  were to be made from pastilage or flower sugar. In fact I did make a pair in sugar for a work colleague when she had her first daughter who is now 14 and I haven't used it since. Instead of icing to stick the parts together I just used ordinary silk thread.It also uses some of the vellum I have had in the draw for like forever. I have to admit they are very cute though not one of the easiest things to put in the post so best hand delivered I think, then you would have chance to cuddle the new bundle that they were made to celebrate the arrival of.

The box pattern not sure where that came from but the hardest bit was cutting out.


I would like to also enter my wee project into the following challenges:-

incy wincy-all white except the image(can my fasteners on the shoes be the image please?
CES-baby bonanza
sweet stampin-stitching hope I can still play even though I didn't stamp
The Corrosive challenge-use something unused and dusty
