A "poshed-up" Poppy.

Hello, and thanks ever so much for popping it as wet and miserable, where you are, as it is here today?
No card today, but a project.......
First up, is my Poppy, which I always where with pride, for me its all about showing our gratitude to those that have gone before. My beloved Grandad, who we lost 10 years ago, served in the Royal Air Force and he in his own way was a very creative person, he was amazing with wood and I'm sure, well at least I hope that some of his creative imagination has been passed down to me......he was also fascinated with technology and he would have loved the internet if he'd still been with, this ones for you Grandad xx
 I gave it a coating with glossy accents and red and green glitter, and I am delighted with the results....its sooo sparkly and actually this has made the paper more robust too!

Off to town soon, so will catch up with you all later xx
