A shameless "Paige-Lift"

I printed this photo from the John Lewis Partnership website. This is my sister Natalie, proudly modelling some posh Waitrose cheese on the Deli where she works. We've been teasing her about being the face of Waitrose as her photo appeared on the front page of the site. (We tease her, but we are all actually incredibly proud of how well she is getting on at work ;0). 

This LO is an shameless scrap lift of a LO
Paige completed for the WCC Challenge. I was looking for a bit of inspiration for what to do with my photo. I had picked my Waitrose colour inspired cardstock and papers but didnt quite know what to do with them. This has turned out perfectly. I embellished with a crown from the On Board Mix and Match set from Stampin' Up!. The colour scheme is Old Olive and Night of Navy. Note sure where the papers are from. They were just tucked away in my paper stash. And I finally got to use my Colour Spritzer Tool on the background of the LO (I do so love splodging ink everywhere!)

This is my creation for the Week 41 Wight Craft Circle challenge- Space. I do have difficulty leaving large areas unembellished on my LOs. And I did still have to splodge a fair bit of Night of Navy around on the Old Olive. But I'm really pleased with how it has turned out ;0) Thank you for the inspiration P.



  1. HOw strange!!! I was just looking at that Lo in my album this morning thinking I might lift it myself for a photo that is sat on my desk!!! I love the colours you have used and I'm over the moon that you liked the LO enough to lift it :) we must catch up soon!!!

  2. Gorgeous page! Love all the White space ( or should that be green!!!) it's fab ! Thanks for your lovely comments and you're in the draw!!! Xx PS- was it you at convention I said I had large rings for if you needed them? Let me know and I'll pop them in the post! X

  3. Love it too - and yes all that space really draws your eye to the photo. You'll have to go round telling everyone that your sister's a media personality!
