Just as you think you've got thing under control!

Earlier this week I tried to address an eye problem I'd been suffering with for the last couple of months.  Decided it was time for action so I set about armed with tea bags, creams, lotions and potions.  Well what can I say eyes felt wonderful until the next morning when I woke up to find I couldn't open them!  

Glad to say that after treatment from the Doctors and a box full of medications my eyes are not only feeling better but looking good!

Unfortunately, just as I resolved one problem I suffer another one and managed to twist my back carrying the hoover down stairs.  Since then I managed to stretch and injure my back even more!  I am now awaiting an appointment to fix my slipped discs so in extreme pain and totally immobile!

Guess that's no crafting for the next few days!

However,  back to this week's inspiration.  I made a Journal type booklet - due to my incapacity I was more random with my design than I usually would be - but overall I quite like the effect.

I used Anna Marine's Spider Web available here.  (Available as a single stamp or a stamp plate of 4 stamps).

To make journal:  Board, Electrical tape

Medium:  Copics, PVA glue for faux pearls, Stickles glitter glue, black pen
Papers:   Bo Bunny's

Dies used:  Spellbinders frame, rectangle, Marianne swirl flower and floral flourish, heart border die
Embellishments:  Various flowers, pearl string, hat pin, flat back pearls, feathers, ribbon, clips

Best wishes,
