once upon a day I came across this gorgeous paper from Ivytree Studio and I just had to get some and scrap up a storm.  The package duly arrived and I decided to create an idea I been mulling over to blend one LO page with a Project Life page.
Package arrived
I have been out of it a while so it has taken me an age to scrap this page coz I ummed and aahed and second guessed myself constantly.

This is how I started

Next step was making flowers

and this is what was finally created

I have not put a picture on yet coz I want one with a very special friend whom I don't get to see very often, so I am prepared to wait.

Pop on over to Ivytree Studio, I know they have launched a simply gorgeous new range with a floral zebra nogal!!

until next time
keep creating

This and that

My blog has certainly suffered from my busyness but I am happy to report that I am crafting a great deal and am even going to try out for a DT post at this awesome new paper company called Ivytree Studio  but more about that later.

I want to share this mini album that I made for my daughter with you.

until we chat again
keep crafting because it is good for the soul

#Christmaschallenge Day 6

Finding gifts for the men in our family is always difficult and whilst  chatting to my sister and asking what her hubby needs, she gave me a awesome idea.  She asked for something where all the TV remotes and the odd magazine could be stashed. I have a pile of decorating swatches that I have collected and pulled them out - did some creative matching and this is what I came up with..

'til next time
make something beautiful

#Christmaschallenge Day 5

A very dear friend got married at the end of October and I was not able to go to the wedding.  When she phoned to say they were honeymooning in my corner of the country, I was delighted and decided to give her an album and made this single page layout for the front of the album as a pressie for her. 
Sticking to my challenge I used what was in my stash.  

I hope I am inspiring you to make some pressies for the special folk in your life
'til next time
be creative
