Crowning Glory at Try it on Tuesday

There's a new challenge at Try it on Tuesdays and this fortnight it's   'Crowning Glory'  - in other words, we would like to see a Crown on your project.
I've used an old stamp from Lost Coast Designs called Prom Night, which was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia and just shaded with Vintage Photo around the edges.  I also randomly stamped a Tim Holtz Crown into Kraft card  and heat embossed with Gold EP for the next shabby layer.

I've had an unexpected Craft Room makeover,  so,  there's been no crafting and very little blog visiting for the last couple of weeks.  It was planned for July - but DD and I saw some worktop in Ikea's bargain corner, which was too good to miss -  but with nowhere to store it, DH decided to set to and the old craft room was demolished.  I'm slowly finding new homes for everything and I'm sure it will eventually look tidy - didn't know I had so much stash/rubbish and I've found stamps I'd forgotten I'd bought!
I am entering this at:
  Make my Monday - Use Kraft card
  Allsorts - Birthday inspired

Well that's it for now, back to tidying up!

Beautiful make Avril and a craft room makeover as well ... wahooo.

Hope we get to see your new craft room and it is the perfect excuse to start ridding yourself of all that unwanted craft rubbish that you don't use anymore. I loved my space when I finally finished my makeover and at last I can see what I have got. It might seem a daunting task but trust me it is worth it.
