It's Shabby Monday..

Well today in my house the scrapping style has been shabby chic..My friend Maria has this amazing site called I am learning to adapt to some shabby chic LO's.. I so love all the shabby paper that is on the market at the moment..Prima has the most amazing things from their papers to their flowers... I just need them..
Here is a circle journal that I did for Maria. Her subject was Marie Antoinette, her circle journal is so amazing. Maria has done such a beautiful job on this journal and the girls that have designed some pages have also done a fantastic job. Here is what I did with my pages.
This is my front page, I dedicated my pages to the fashion of the era.

This is my middle page I so love how the dresses of this era featured all the lace and how they were done up by tiny buttons or by being laced into them

On the last page is a page that I dedicated to Caroline Chilsolm.. You had to do a page on somebody that you would like to meet in history.
This next picture is a for a matchbox swap..Oops it's not a matchbox, it's a tobacco tin, so I suppose it is close. You had to have a king or queen on the box & then fill it up with some yummy things from your stash..This is a good way to clear some of your stash to make room for all the new things you buy..

Ann one of the kind ladies did a step by step tutorial to show you how to do a shabby LO. I did this yesterday and as it was ANZAC day I decide to do a page with my Pop in his uniform. Here he is with his family. My father is sitting on his knee this was the first time that he had seen my father. He was born whilst he was over in Egypt

This picture is for the April challenge. Maria put up two gorgeous photos and you had to get inspiration from the pictures to create your LO.. This is a picture of my Mother {sitting on the leather chair} and her sister Anne.. They look so cute..

Well this has been my Shabby Monday!!
