Shabby Chic at Polkadoodles- When is a toilet roll not a toilet roll

Happy Friday morning are you ready for the show with Nikky from Polkadoodles at Create and Craft she is on with the fab Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils. I have my seat reseved  hoping to get some tips and I believe they will be having a fab set on if you are starting out.
Anyway lets get back to the Shabby Chic and it is Team A's turn at Polkadoodles turn to share their inspiration on the challenge blog today.
The theme is Shabby Chic dont run for the hills you will get lost
Be warned I have a few pictures to share so grab a cuppa and a biscuit.
Well for my Shabby Chic Project which I had to look up the definition for. I have done a little mini album/Tag book.
 I idea is that you write on the tags or add little pictures if you want. I havent used a image but used papers and elements for each of the pages from 2 cds- Rose Budd collection  available here and one of my favorites Twiggy & Toots available Here. 
Ok pictures start here
 !st and 2nd page
 3rd & 4th Page
 %th & 6th Page

 Back Page

I have added Lace and Ribbons and gems from my stash. 
The Pages Bases have actually been made from Toilet Rolls. I ran these through my big shot to crease and then covered with papers. Cut some tags to slide in.
I do hope you like it as much as I have enjoyed making. We would love for you to come and join us in the challenge and share your Shabby Chic I am sure it wont be Shabby at all.
Thank you for popping by and hope the picture show wasnt too long. Now go checkout the rest of the amazing team they have really rocked this challenge.
