A shoe fit for a very good friend!

I was amazed by all the visits again yesterday thank you for stopping by (I did about half of all the entry's but I will defo get back to all that commented yesterday if I haven't already thank you. Now I have a lovely find to share. I have found an amazing template over at Terri's (it pays to play tea cup Tuesdays he he) so make sure you pop along for the video TT if you fancy ago at one of these gorgeous shoes. I saw it and I knew a Friend who would love it and you can make it big enough to hold a few gifts too!

This is it ready to go full of lace and hand made goodies for the special lady Lynne wehave agreed to do this swap for each other and I am so thrilled. One of the reasons I like blog land so much you get to make some fabby friends.

Now I have made some buttons from polymer clay with script stamps on and I know Lynne like me Love's anything French style so this shoe and the Eiffel tower were a must along with some vintage and new lace/ribbon for her to play with. she had been making lots to do with birds and so I added some eggs that she can paint! and I am happy to say I have had a lovely e-mail she is so happy with it and my little swap will be in the post soon (we gave each other until the end of June so I was a little early, she has far more commitments than me ha ha) honestly if you don't know Lynne pop along you will love love love her stuff, just make sure you stop by and visit me again ha ha.

here is close up of the front of the shoe. Now in the first photo you can see the heel I made to go with it, talk about tricky it took for ever! but I was happy with it in the end. I have used some yummy DBL sided DP and a beautiful cubic zircon Crystal slide for the ribbon I knew I had to use it for this very special friend. I really enjoyed making this for some one who I knew would love and appreciate the work put into it and it was a pleasure for such a lovely person.  I hope you like my share with you today. Don't forget to pop along to Terri's for the template and to Lynne's to see their wonderful work (I kid you not you will love both these sites) Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Design Paper (DP) Kay & Co. Stamps, Oxford Impressions & Stampin Up! Moulded Items, Polymer clay Emboss powder, ink and Liqid clay. Flowers , Hobby Craft and Orchard crafts. Ribons various.

Hi, Dawn,
I know Lynne loved that charming shoe and all of her wonderful little goodies. I enjoyed seeing your wonderful tea cups and saucers and the terrific box they came in. Love the colors of them, too. Have a blessed Friday and lovely weekend. Thank you so much for coming by for a visit~ Vicki

We really enjoyed Crazy Heart... missed it at the pictures so when I saw it at Blockbusters I grabbed it quickly!!!! My OH enjoyed it too even though I wouldn't really have it down as his 'thing'

Have a great weekend

I am the lucky "Lynne" who received this so you can imagine how delighted I was on opening the parcel. This is our first swap, anything goes we said, I knew that Dawn would not fail to create something stunning, made with love. We said to put in little items from our stash and Dawn created that most incredible crown which I am saving for a special project. So Dawn, thank you is not nearly enough, I am bowled over with what you sent to me. We will definitely do this again. You know that my item to you should have been there by now but "life" got in my way. Thanks for your kindness. Lynne x
