Finished pages

Good morning friends.
I hope you all had a good weekend. I didn't do much this weekend to be honest as I've struggled to do stuff with one hand. Funny how you don't realise how much you use both hands when crafting! But I've some pages to share that I've finished. Some of them you will have seen part way but still I'm sure you'll understand.
 I'd done the right hand side of this page back in January but wasn't sure what to do one the left side so over the weekend I discovered these owls from a while ago so thought that they'd look pretty good on the page so I just drew a tree and added them. I can't help thinking that they are looking at me as if I was a mouse!
 Then on this page which originally I'd done with my Frame one mask and Dylusions inks along with Distress inks I love the background so kept it simple with the addition of these Stampotique images. The kids looking out of the "window" dreaming of the day they will be old enough to attend the monster ball with their parents....

I even swapped the wings around which I thought was pretty clever. After all, if you are going to a ball, the ladies pop on their finest feathers!

 This one I used Dylusions images and corners, along with a sentiment that felt appropriate.

I really liked this background so in the end I just added the sentiment.

 Then, because we were out getting some fabric and costume stuff for my wife I thought a little retail therapy would not go amiss. Don't you just love the top hat? The embossing folder was a bargain at only £2.00 and the egg and ball; well, Francesca will know exactly what I plan to do with those, the rest of you will have to wait........

Hope you all have a great and creative day.

Oh yes, almost forgot; yesterday was the start of the new alphabet challenge at The Craft Barn. The letter is M and there is a twist so pop on over and join in.
My word is Marvellous and here is my page.

Nice and simple, My masks, Dylusions inks and white writing on black card.

Me too... I was wondering what you've done to yourself! Hope it's quickly healed.
Great pages you've managed, nonetheless!
Please share where you acquired that little top hat... I seriously NEED some of them for a show.
