Human Statue~



Hello Girls,

Hope I find you all well and the weather is being kind for you!
It's mixed for us at the moment, one minute it's nice and sunny (but not hot) and the next it's really grey, windy and raining. No two day's alike, so plans cannot really be made on anything outdoors!!

I am well into my Scrapbooking at the moment, I am just loving it.
Over the last few weeks I have found more and more Blog Challenges for Layouts, so this one is made for two of them.

This Photograph is one of my All time favourites. This "Statue" is actually a "Girl", how amazing is that?





When we were in Dinar in France we actually saw her getting into her clothes and climbing up onto that tiny pedestal, it was no bigger than a dinner plate, incredible, and she remained there crouched down for ages! She was a tiny thing, about a size 6 in GB sizing and about 5 foot tall, but there was still the most incredible skill involved in standing four feet off the ground like that. The children loved the way she made very tiny moves every time someone put a coin on her money plate. We could have stood and watched her all day.

I have used several papers, Pink Paislee, Bo-Bunny, Stampin' up, Graphic 45 Basil Basics and  the circle paper is by Grace Taylor. The wooden button is by Prima, the metal is Tim Holtz, not sure who makes the metal flower tho'.
