Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Crafty Boots - Blue & White

Well good morning, and a happy Monday to you all!

I'm back today to share my latest DT project for the Crafty Boots Challenge Blog and the theme this fortnight was chosen by ME! It is - 


In honour of my beloved Bristol Rovers, of course! Though that fact will not surprise anyone who knows me and know I'll reach for blue at any given chance. So that's what I want to see, all of your cards, Smash, home décor, tags or anything else you can come up with as long as it's blue and white!

I created a double Smash spread in my 'Memories' Smash Book about our trip to Wembley stadium to watch Bristol Rovers (of course!) win promotion via a Play-Off final in May 2007. Here's the pics - 

I started by spraying London Blue Dylusions ink onto the pages to create an interest to the background and also taped blue Washi Tape to the top and bottom of the pages before adding the lettering for Bristol Rovers and the date (Can you spot my mistake? It's funny because it's also very important! I've since mended it). I then chose my favourite photos from the day and found my ticket. I kept it simple and simply ran a dark blue Copic around the edge of each photo. I then stamped and coloured Kaylee from Some Odd Girl's range Kaylee's Closet Wardrobe Set & Winter Warmth set both available from the Crafty Boots store. I drew quarters onto her t-shirt to replicate a Rovers shirt! And even put blue in her hair as I actually sprayed blue hair spray into my own hair that day! I attached my ticket to the page to finish it all off. 

A blue & white super fab day captured on a blue and white page never to be forgotten!

What do you think?  I look a little different and Keagan is still much shorter than me! Ha ha.

Take care Zo xx
