Linked and Stylish!



No it's not me that's linked and stylish...I'm more like disjointed and frazzled!! It's today little freebie frame.

But first...............

Today's  trivia is based on things I came across during my work. I often run across some amusing and not so amusing laws that were in force at some time in the past, thank goodness that most of them have gone. Some make me smile and others make me shiver!!

This is one that makes me smile.....almost all the female population would be found guilty of this one now - Elizabeth I passed a law banning women from wearing make-up, false hair, false hips (what are they implants?),high heeled shoes or "other devices" (I wonder iwhat these were?). The punishment was not pleasant as it carried the same penalty as being found guilty of witchcraft!!

Obesity we think of as a modern curse but if you believe that...your wrong. In1336 it was a problem too and so Edward III passed an Act that prohibited anyone from having more than two course at a meal, only on feast days were three courses permitted...and no, soup did not count as a sauce!! Some people tried this dodge to get in an extra course! But I must admit I would have thought it unenforceable unless they employed people to run around at dinner time peering through windows. Lol!

OK, enough..I know..but fact is often stranger than fiction!!

Guess what I've made my first styles for the shop and I have to admit that I had great fun making them. My CT girls tested them for me in CS2, CS3, PE6 and PE5 and they worked!! You have to know where to load styles in PE5/6 but I have included instructions on loading them in with the styles sets. It's been a learning curve for me finding out how to make them and then how to load them in different in software. The CT girls have been great!! Thank you ladies!

So I decided to try some of the styles out on some thing big!! I made a frame and then two...linking them seemed a good idea and so your little freebie was born! It's a bit of fun that I hope you can use. Take a look.

So if you like the my trial run with the styles:
