London Calling

It's windy and my allergies have been making me a mess.  I woke up with another smashing headache, and my first instinct was to crawl back under the covers and forget about the day.  I'm happy to say that I didn't give into that idea.  Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I turned on my favorite 80's channel from Boston and got to work on this printer's tray from 7 Gypsies.  It seems that my favorite inspirations revolve around my passion for the UK.  The background paper is also from 7 Gypsies. Some of the ephemera like the London Buses ticket are leftover from a trip across the pond.  The spoon on the right came from Wales, and the coin in the little glass pendant is a Twenty Pence.  I actually came home with a little spare change in my pocket.  The sheep in front of the red phone booth is off a Christmas card that I received from a British friend.  I tried to make a throne by adding some bling to a tiny chair.  I tore my craft room apart looking for my sequins and never found them, so I used red Stickles instead.  The large crown was a great find at Hobby Lobby.  It was actually a knob, and I just took the hardware off.  Each picture can be enlarged by clicking on them.
