Nothing on the telly.......

Morning peeps well it is morning when I started to write this but it'll probabaly be evening when I post it......its a real inconvience having to go to work in the middle Oh well I'm off from tomorrow until Sunday, going to Paris for a couple of days to take Ethan and his mum and dad to Disneyland, the weather forecast is sunny for the three days.........can't remember what that looked like so heres hoping that it comes out whilst we're there.
I've been published as well, at Artella,with the bottle top tutorial I did for JoAnne a little while back. Its an online arty/newsy magazine click here for more info.
Todays offering is a mess about that I did last night and its keeping the Paris theme I've been doing lately.....nothing on the telly and my mojo for card making was out the window so I started cutting up pics I've collected and made a collage effect on an envelope that contained a reciept from All Saints the clothing shop.......I love their industrial grunge windows that they do and they wrap their clothes in lovely grungy tissue paper as well as putting the reciept in a vintage looking envelope.....trouble is the clothes cost a fortune and they look grungy as, so I have to beg the  bits I want from other people. I thought this might fit the challenge at Simon Says stamp and show this week as the challenge is Ephemera.....I had to make do with pics instead or using the real thing hope thats ok guys.....The other challenge is for Lindas at Compendium of Curiosities......this week its collage fragments.
I know mine is kinda cheating as the collage spills past the fragment but I loved the look so I kept it....sorry Linda hope I'm background stamps I used are by B Line......the tape measure and the houndstooth background.

Your comments are greatly appreciated

Danielle, congratulations on being published-- that's awesome!

You didn't cheat on the CCC at all-- it's fine to have your collage spill over the edges of the Fragment, and it looks great! This is truly an all-around lovely work of art.

I hope your trip to Paris was wonderful!
