V is for Victorian

The Craft Barn are running an Alpha Challenge which I am keen to join in with and follow to the end.........hopefully.  The first letter is V click on the link for more details.

So far the start hasn't been great, also January is a busy month in the family with 5 birthdays including mine (tomorrow  don't ask it is a big big one......gulp where did time go to)!!!! So  altogether with friends we have 10 birthdays ....and I realised today that if i didn't get my page done today I would miss the deadline .....heads to craft room.....which is a total bomb zone left over from Christmas etc. No mojo there then!!!!!!!!!

Anyway I have decided to alter a dictionary for this challenge and my chosen 'v' word is Victorian.  My first choice of stash was of course Tim Holtz stamps and inks so armed with various stamps sets and vintage photo and aged mahogany, black archival my page was born.

Edit: I have uploaded new photos today hope they are a little clearer!

Photos edited on 17th January

Sorry for the awful photo but my camera has gone on the blink and had to use DH camera and well I'm just not used to it and had to take it before the light faded..........sorry.   If I can change it later on before the challenge ends I will.

Arggggggh blogger playing up and won't let me load photos argggggggh
