Coming Soon!!!

Have had a super busy past few days, my Cést Magnifique Kit arrived last week so I have been scrapping away, 4  pages and 1 card later I can now stop and take a breather and catch up.  Can't show my pages yet, they are for the April Kit.  However why not pop on over and see some of the teasers by some of the other amazing Design Team members.  Whilst your there check out the past kits as well, these gorgeous kits have been put together by the owner Leslie.    And if you are not yet a subscriber you may want to re-think that, already I have made the above and could possibly get another two pages easily out of the kit with only having to add cardstock.  The kits are awesome value!!!!  Whilst your over there check out the forum and challenges if you are looking for a little motivation or inspiration as their is plenty of it.  To take you there click on the above badge.


I also completed this page using the new Blooms from Dusty Attic.  I was so excited to receive such a beautiful range to work with whilst guest designing.   You will not be disappointed by the colour, texture or size variance.  So that I could share with you how gorgeous these are I had to whip up another page,  I used the colors over at Color Combos Galore blogspot.  Unfortunately I didn't read all the requirements so cannot upload,  I used a picture of myself instead of one of my kids so I am hoping to get another one done in time.  If you would like to check the colours out, the link is in my side bar.

I thought the colours here worked perfectly with the My Minds Eye Range "Follow Your Heart" Collection. I had a few scraps floating around after I had cut images from them already so decided to use them all up. 

The Dusty Attic swirl was given a treatment of gesso, crackle accents and micro beedz, thank goodness I have an extensive range of these dating back from over 5 I have used them more in the past 12 months than I ever did.

Whilst I am catching everyone I wanted to share that we will be having a Blog Hop!!
