Honey honey hex

The Queen Bee gals have been busy again
this time it was to alter an old photo of ourselves
on a honeycomb hex
what a challenge!
Linda in her swishing skirt!
Patty looking oh so cute with her honeybees
Nathalie standing splendid in her hat and chandelier creation
Carole sewed us a hex, complete with tiny yo yo's
Me wearing 'the jacket' which appears in many a family photo
and the flip side
Thank you QB5's for this self styled autograph book!
totally fab!

bet that surprised you, I am here afterall!!
I recently took part in a matchbox swap with the lovely Jan
oh my! what a fab box of goodies to arrive on my doorstep
I can't tell you how much I LOVE her creation, filled to the brim with tiny treasures
and even more piled on top, superb!

a gorgeous autumn paper selection
this little beauty sits perfectly on my Halloween tray
I just love those pumpkins and brooms!
Jan's last of the autumn sun ATC
I had a bit of an 'after the event moment' with my box
having seen Jan's gift of inspiration I could then think of a million things to add to mine
but too late, it was already on it's way!
some very poor quality 'white light' pics, Jan took some much better ones here!
I wouldn't like to say my ATC reflects my current state of mind
however I do still have garden issues and a need to erm...express myself!
the children decided on the fork
I was all for tapping her on the head with a spoon
I mailed an additional little packet to Jan
with the buttons I'd forgotten the first time round
and this little inchie book
totally inspired by the rich purple, orange and black that burst out of her packet
I might just be making one of these for myself!
Thank you once again Jan for a fantabulous swap
you really do spoil me
what an absolute treat to decorate my house with your beautiful work!
