This Thursday It's All About... 'The Golden Rule'



So this is what happens when you are far too impatient to read the challenge properly and you just want to get started. The challenge was -
'Our challenge this week is inspired by a quote from the father of the Arts and crafts movement William Morris, who said “If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
Now don’t worry we’re not asking you to get rid of your clutter or tidy up, or wonder where you are going to stick your Husband ( only joking) , although you can if you want.
Our CHALLENGE is attempt to create something you truly believe is either beautiful or useful. If like the design team you find that something didn't quite hit the mark, we still want to see it. It's about the journey not the destination.'

Oops, I thoght I had to interpret a 'Golden Rule' anyhoo I don't know about it being beautiful but it is useful!
Goodies I used - Papermania paper ' Sweet Nothings', quote stamp by Sforstamps, cake stamp by Hampton Art, large flower from Imaginisce, small mulberry paper flower, circle nestie and a button (of course).
