just an old-fashioned girl

Hello and welcome. I'm glad you dropped by. If you´re looking for something a little nostalgic of bygone eras with a timeless elegance and a little modern twist – in other words, something slightly “retro” – then you should feel right at home here in my shabby chic room. Month by month, there will always be something new to see so I hope you´ll enjoy your stay and come back again soon.

Diamond Glitter

This is my cousin´s daughter, Amanda, looking lovely on her wedding day. Her dress and bouquet are simply beautiful but I was particularly struck by the wonderful tiara she´s wearing which explains why I may have gone a tiny bit overboard with the diamond glitter in this LO.

I created this page using the kit I´m currently working on which includes lots of glitter and sparkle, gold and silver with the usual sprinkling of jewels and precious stones. Preview coming soon...


  1. Wow! Absolutely beautiful layout for a stunning bride. I always love it when you do extraction because you do it so perfectly. :o)

  2. I agree with Diane! Beautiful layout for a stunning bride! Love the paper and the diamond glitters! I bet Amanda will love this page and will probably want you to do up her entire wedding album! I LOVE the little lace butterfly! I can't believe how many butterfly I have seen this summer in my back yard, there was a week that just about every time I went out back, one of them was fluttering by my flowers. Great looking kit!

  3. Indeed, those are exquisite elements for the kit. I really like the detail on her dress, but that is an awful lot of orchids! Agree that she'll be thrilled with this.

  4. What a gorgeous bride and the LO is just as gorgeous. Love all the glitter and sparkles on the page...does set off the tiara and sparkle of the bridal gown. Reminds me of the gown I made for my first daughter's wedding. We spent months adding sequins,pearls and bugle beads on all the lace. Lots of work but it was worth it! Lovely frame...loving this kit!
