We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

If the shoe fits - strut!

The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge  involves one word - shoe.  Now in my youth I was a bit of a shoe-aholic, and had more pairs that I care to remember, but since I've been unable to wear heels without falling over, my enthusiasm has somewhat waned. So I had no inspiration for this particular challenge!

Then a friend gave me a boot shaped card.

I sat looking at it for a bit, then decided - if in doubt collage it!

Which I did, using magazine pages - both text and images, and a little bling.

Once I had finished the collage, the card would not stay upright, as it was now front heavy.

(These first two pics have a blue tinge to them as they were taken early in the morning!)

So, I decided to cut the back of the card off, mount the collage onto an A5 card, add a few words and a bit more bling .....

I know a few people who I could send this card to!

Finally,  I am always chuffed that there are people out there who like what I do enough to follow me, so I would like to say welcome to the new followers of this blog.


  1. Love the quote on this. I also have a passion for shoes but sadly not the opportunity to wear them or the cash to buy them!

  2. Gorgeous card, love the words! Thank you for joining in the challenge.

  3. This has really turned out well - who would believe it.

  4. Love the quote and your collage is fabulous. These days the flat shoe would be my shoe of choice!
