Christmas Frame

Lunch Lady Jan (oh She of the beautiful fabrics, amazing imagination and boot-i-ful kitty) asked about something on my desk... The 'gold coloured curly wurly thing' is actually a Christmas decoration. Every January, I trot off to The Range and see what decorations they have going cheap. They usually sell tree decorations for 19p and upwards out of season... and when I spotted these glittery swirls in gold and silver, I knew they'd make brilliant frames for scrapbooking and mini-albums. At 29pence each, I thought it was a bit of a bargain really.
I really should have bought more than just two... but I was in a rush that day, and also bought a handful of other ornaments too.
It's getting quite bad actually, this habit that's forming... nearly everything has a possible use in scrapbooking... nothing is quite safe from a bit of alcohol ink and some strong glue *lol*
Yup, everything has a scrapability factor... think this is why Hubby has banned me from his shed :)

This is so pretty. I tend to haunt the local garden centres as well after Christmas because they often have bargains on the Christmas goodies.
