Hats Off To Ya!

Monday Monday, here again and that means 2 things..
Firstly there is a new theme over at Simon Says Stamp'n'Show
AND The brand new Grungy Monday challenge starts today!
WooHoo
So firstly for my Simon Says piece
The theme this week could not be more fitting for me..
They want you to show your 'HATS'
And as luck has it I have just completed one I shall be wearing to Ally Pally in a couple of weeks time {are you going?}
I was totally inspired by one i had seen on the net somewhere, but like a plank i forgot where, luckily today the owner of that inspirational piece Sarah commented and reminded me, check out her awesome hat HERE
It's made from grungeboard and idea-ology and i've given it a steampunk theme
and it actually took me the best part of 2 days to complete..
But so worth it, came out way better than i could have hoped for,
And thought it was proper fiddly,  I feel another coming on lol
Rather than flood the blog with pics, i've put them into a slide show for you!

***
Thanks for stopping by.. I may be back later with my GMC if not then see you tomorrow!
