MIM#132 - Moral of a fairytale with Bugaboo

Monday has arrived with chilly wind nipping at my bare feet as I take a bit more rubbish out before the garbage truck arrives to haul it away!. I've just caught one of  my neighbours from a few houses up in her pyjamas. She's forgotten to put her bins out and they've already picked up the green waste (that's what woke her up, LOL), so she's putting her bin on the other side of the road. The truck goes to the top of the street and then comes back the other side. I suggested she put it in front of the house directly across from me as he hasn't put his out and they won't pick up two of the same bins from the same house unless you have paid extra money to the council!!!
I spent yesterday morning at church and then met our two daughters, one DIL and our future DIL in town. The girls are organising a Hen's night and a few other things as Emma goes back to Vietnam in May and they need to sort some things out before she goes. It will be nice for her to have a Hen's night here so she can celebrate her upcoming wedding with some of the friends she has made here during her time as a student.
Hubby went to Clare, which is several hours drive out into the country, to a swap meet, car parts, motorbike parts, magazines and bits and pieces.He went to sell things, but I'm sure he probably bought a couple of extra things back with him.
The two youngest grandchildren have arrived so I had better hurry up and finish this so I can see what they are up to. (just checked on them, one is watching the tv and playing with toys and the other one is colouring in, so all good - quiet too!!!)

MIM#132 has started and we are all looking forward to another week of wonderful creations to inspire us.
Congratulation this week go to Joey as our featured artist and also to Evelyn as the prize winning commenter.
This week we are being sponsored by the ever fabulous, Bugaboo and I chose this fab saying and image called Block Sentiments - Cinderella.
Here is what I finally decided to do to showcase this fab image.

It's not a fabulous picture as it's been overcast and windy outside the last few days and with that bow on there I wouldn't have been able to do a good scan either. Still thinking what to do with the inside, I am thinking of putting a small piece of white at the toe end of the shoe, just like the inside of our shoes and then leaving it plain.

Pink cardstock from stash for the shoe
SU Early Espresso cardstock for the bottom of the shoe and heel
DP from Grace Taylor - Vintage scrapbooking pad 12x12
Bling from stash
Image is Block Sentiment - Cinderella from Bugaboo
Copic Markers
Bow is from stash
DS tape roller
