Hollywood Stars Birthday film roll

This is another T.Roll makeover. I made this for another of my daughters. All my daughters seem to love Hollywood film stars so it's easy for me to make these "Film Rolls" for their birthdays....


 On the back of the roll I used vintage news print of the era I found on the internet, which fits in perfect with the theme I think.....


 I have decorated with mulberry flowers and little butterfies.



On the top I have used a vintage brooch and lace. Am sure she will like it.

Brag Monday (on Tuesday) Graphics Fairy

I made this shopping tote from Calico and included an image from graphicsfairy.blogspot.com. One of my favourite sites for fab. free images.
I Have used vintage cotton lace and a self made ruffle and rose out of the spare calico and added a pearl button to the rose centre. You can dress up cheap plain bags if you don't want to make this bag from scratch, I think they sell them in Wallmart or Asda, or Hobby Craft if you're in the UK. 
 I got this idea from a lovely blog on pinterest here so not taking any credit for this myself.  Hop on over to look at her fabulous creations. Many thanks to her for sharing her ideas.
