Glitter and glitz

I have been away up north to my favorite retail therapy shop.
The journey up and back down where done in brilliant sunshine
but it tipped it down all the time we were there.
30 mils of rain in about 12 hours.

I bought this lovely glittery paper in several shades
and the seam binding which I coloured with
DI Tumbled glass.
Have made a note to get some desposable gloves before I do that again.
What is the fun if you don't get dirty though!
Had to take the photo on a slight angle to avoid reflections
though his pompom looks rather pink and it isn't at all.
