123 March Challenge


I know there has been a few of these goining around but I have responded to a PIF from Anita Stokes and am now passing this on in the hopes of having 5 people respond. Such a lovely way to pass on a RAK.

Pay it forward for creative people: I promise to send something handmade to the first five people who leave a comment on this post specifying they would like to take part. They must in turn, promise to post this and send something they made to the first five people to reply. It must be sent sometime in 2011. Mix tape, postcard, jewellery, all counts.

I already have an idea of the yummy goodies I will send.. so leave a message in the comments for me if you would like a parcel of goodies :)

Just Too Beautiful for Words

This months at 1,2,3 Challenge was:

Colour: Light/Medium Blue
Word: To/Too/Two (you choose which one)
Technique/Product/Theme Idea: Doilies

Thought I would have another try at using gesso on this LO and this time it shows up really well on the Donna Salazar pp. The theme was doilies and I have used a paper doily and inked the edges and I thought the lacy border on the Kaiser had a look of a doily and was the perfect colour. The photo background paper is the new Prima Madeline.. so pretty.

You've probably noticed I have been using quite a few Prima flowers on my LO's lately. I have so many in my stash and I really need to use them, so I don't feel too bad if I purchase some of the new CHA stock!! and the chipboard on the flower cluster is from Scrapmatts.. love this one.

Yippee another win!!

I received a comment on my blog from the lovely Chantel to let me know my LO had been chosen for the Feb ROTM Challenge over at Bon's Scraps... so excited to win a voucher... woo hoo more shopping!! Pop on over an check them out as they have quite a few monthly challenges to choose from.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love... really makes my day :)
