Something a bit,retro,steam punk but my version

Evening everyone gosh I am totally shattered,I have been busy helping Lisa with her new flat wallpapering,painting,you name,it I have been doing it. Gosh the wallpaper must be the hardest she could have found talk about blue air trying to match it up rrrrr
Still that is what us mums are for I guess. But she is settling in okay,just its wearing me out I have been up since 6am,doing allsorts,and yesterday and today found some time to make these.
Now I saw something like these at the show on Sunday mind you mine are nothing compared to what I saw there,so I thought I would have a go. I had none of the things they had so made these from toilet rolls,strong card,glue and some imagination,so this is what I have come up with.




items used
2 toilet rolls for the base,
4 circles for the top,including thick cardboard,then covered with paper
DPS,Tim Holtz,7 Gypsies,farmers,market,
Hole punch,eylets,
Thread,
Chipboard,pieces,Tim holtz elements,flowers and leave made from grunge paper,
rest of things from my stash,some which my dear friend Jude,sent me,and also what Karen,gave me.
Right now off to see what you guys have all been up too,just before i go would like to welcome,the new DT members to the Pixie Cottage team,welcome aboard guys please shout if you need anything.

Monring Cheryl

You are spot on, that's exactly a Mum's roll, oh and don't forget the laundry service,outside catering facility and PA.

Great artwork as usual, such fantastic imagination. Hope you realise though that now you have published what you can do with a loo roll holder, Blue Peter might head hunt you.
