November 2011 Colour Blog Hop

Welcome to November's Colour Blog Hop. If you are here from Kirsty's blog you are in the right place

This months colour scheme has a cocoa/chocolate theme

I thought this scheme was perfect for a layout of my wedding dress (picture quality not good as taken using I Phone). Butterflies cut out of American Crafts kraft paper, Misting using Studio Calico's Mr Hueys in Calico White, and mask by Studio Calico. Brown paper also American Crafts and pearls (from my craft stash).

Please go here for the next participant in this blog hop and I look forward to seeing you in December for the next blog

  1. Very elegant page! Love those butterflies and the background design you used.

  2. Beautiful dress! I love your take on the challenge:)

  3. This looks great - I love the use of the stencil on background. Very classy :0)

  4. Wonderful idea using your wedding dress in a layout! I've got the uniform I wore when I graduated nursing school and nurses don't wear dresses anymore it seems, so taking a photo of it and documenting it would be great. (use this link, not the blogger link with my name)

  5. Hi Lesley, I hope you're still ok to come on the Bloggers' Crafting Weekend next Friday.
    Just a memory jogger - I sent out a group e-mail on 11th, asking for several bits of info; I need a reply from you asap please! I'll post an e-mail reminder too, but just in case the e-mails are not getting through!
    Thanks, Lizzie

  6. Beautiful layout and dress. I love the butterflies and pearls.

  7. Gorgeous page about your dress - very elegant! I think I recognise those butterflies! (thanks for the loan of the punch)

Book Review January - The Broken Man by Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox is not an author I would normally pick, but I received the book as a present from my mother in law.

The main theme is about the consequences of domestic abuse.  It tells the story of Adam, a young boy who had to bear things no little boy should ever see, and also the tale of Anne who was abused by her husband.  Though the theme was about domestic abuse, it was wasn't graphic or gory which I was glad about.  The tale weaved between Anne's story and Adams story which interlinked, and was a fairly easy read.  I was slightly disappointed with the ending of the book and thought it hadn't fully ended the story of Anne and didn't even mention how she would have felt about finding out her husbands childs link to her best friend.  I also found the aforementioned coincidence too far fetched.

Overall it was an OK book.  Not my favourite book of all time, but very readable all the same.  As the first book I have read of hers I don't know if this is the usual ty…
