Reason to Smile (again!)

Hello there! I am back with the last in my trilogy of Reason to Smile projects! I had a lovely Reason to Smile yesterday - I drove down to Cannock, Staffs with 2 of my lovely dance friends to have a fitting for our ballroom dresses that we are having made! I have designed the whole thing myself and its been a great process and I am really pleased with how it is looking so far!!! It now needs the finishing touches of bling and will be ready in 2-3 weeks!!!

Another Reason to Smile for me is the Olympics!! How fab have they been!! Loved the cycling and the rowing yesterday and Jessica Ennis and Becky Adlington, loving it all so much!!

So onto the cards. There isnt really much stamping from the set on this one, it was mostly about the flowers!!!

I love a bit of "paper construction" and these flowers are my favourite form of it at the moment

The papers are from the Attic Boutique set which finishes at the end of this month in the Summer Mini Catalogue.

Sentiment is from the trusty Petite Pairs stamp set.

All three cards together

Right thats me off for now! Got a dance lesson this morning - another Reason to Smile!
