News Flash - Tidy Craftspace!!, not for long though

Well I have finally got organised, put all my new storage boxes etc to good use and have tidied up my craft space. Now, to put it into perspective, the space isn't as big as it looks - its along one wall of my bedroom. Although Graham likes to tell folk that we have a craft room with a bed in it :D
So this picture shows the whole length of the wall...

Since I took those picture this afternoon I've been using glitters, embossing powders and punching hundreds of tiny flower shapes, so its not quite as tidy as that now. But at least I know where everything is now :D

I've spent a few hours doing this layout of Faith for the Ibiza album, I took a series of photographs of her sitting beside the patio doors in our apartment and she had the cheekiest of faces, but we never figured out why.... she looked like she was up to something lol
I used Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie paper as a background as it has a lovely distressed look and saved me a bit of time. I then used one of the papers from the ATD Beach kit which had an all over tiny deep pink and white daisy print - I punched hundreds of flower shapes from this, trying as far as possible to position the daisy in the middle of the flower punch. I then stuck these individually round each of the two photos (which I had cut into circles using my brand new X-Cut shape cutter) to make a frame effect. I then used my 3" circle punch to cut a circle of card from a sheet that had a speckled pink effect (I got this from the Papeterie last time I was there with Mar), and framed this with the wee punched flowers too, this was my journalling spot.
I stuck a line of the wee flowers 5cm from the right hand side and in the space to the right of that I stuck card stock letters from a Pebbles page kit spelling out the title "adorable".
I stuck pink gems onto each of the punched flower shapes as well as flower gems on the A, D, O, A and B of adorable and on the fabric flower and the journalling spot.
The fabric flowers were stamped using clear ink and a papermania ornate stamp then embossed with tinsel embossing powder. I also added a wee bit of pink glitter to the petal tips.
So I'm quite pleased with the end result, its quite a clean simple design, despite the fact it was quite labour intensive.

Doesn't she look like an impudent little monkey?!!
