More scraps

Keith's Jeans
So far I haven't been able to face clearing out Keith's clothes and may not do so for a long time.  But I have been recycling some of his stuff.  This time I turned a pair of his jeans into a bag for Julie and another smaller bag for myself (not yet photogr...

Spot the Difference
Spot the difference it wasn't until I had uploaded the photo of my French cafe scene that I realised I'd missed a couple of elements off.  Can you find them? One of the things I had promised myself this year was to make a monthly journal page.  Well it star...
