A few more of my suncatchers

And A suncatcher ccard, card & present in one


Welcome to my latest, ongoing project. I am making a smashbook, which is a kind of scrapbook, just less organised, and more than just photos memories. anything & everything can go in a smash book.
I have made mine using stock I already had at home, but there are official smashbooks out there you can buy & which I also have. However, I am concentrating on this one for now. here is a picture of the Smashbook, the front cover & the first inside page

ok - since i could not sleep last night, I got on with my 'green' challenge, so here it is. Brayered background in varied shades of green, then TH stain to give the blotching effect. Emboss pasted butterflies & grasses which were then covered with glitter & flocking, then green veluum on the sides with embossed & glittered chipboard, plus 2 halloween ATCs.

And finally for now

Cards I have made

I have still been making cards as well, here are a few of my latest creations

and so now here we are

In October already, the year has passed by so fast and I have not kept up with life very well, but am determined to do better and put 100% effort into being a better person. These are my fat pages, I am making one a month until i have a years worth of them

and met lots of new people

This year I have had the greatest honour of becoming friends with the best people in the crafting world & am proud to call them all my friends. When I have been low or in pain, they have been there for me, to gee me along boot me up the rear and stop me going into a decline and i thank them all from the bottom of my heart. You know who you all are Leah Hepburn, Abbie Kay, & my darling friend Stee whom I have been friends with forever.
