A little creation!

Evening everybody..

I thought I would share a little creation. I made this as a entry to the local scrap book store as they have a monthly card creation competition - you have to buy the pack and you're only allowed to use the card/embellishments that are contained within the pack. It was a struggle with using the paper as it wasn't something that i would typically use and there were only 2 sheets double sided.. as you can see - i've used three sides.. ha haha

please let me know what you think..

As an added bonus I found a couple of online challenges to enter it into:

The Crafty Pad: Paper piecing.
Totally Paper crafts - #125 Lots of Layers

Just in case your are wondering - the lovely die is a memory box and I grabbed it from Bizzy Bec's online store..

Have a great night whatever you are doing.

Bizzy Bec's JULY Challenge- FLOWER POWER

Well Hi Ya everybody!
Sorry I've been absent, yet again! But i had some holidays and spent all of my time with my family in Melbourne.. We had a lovely time and I can't wait to move back there.

Now down to business..

Below is my take on this months challenge - Flower Power ~ theme by Tracy

Now I know its not my normal style but I just wanted to give you an idea about what you can use other than the regular coloured images.

So I created this little tag scene with nothing more than Memory Box/Poppy Dies (including Wildflower patch, Grand Madison Window, Grand Madison window box, spring border, primula blooms,Dancing Tulips and our trusty Estate Fence ) and some Kaiser papers..

Am looking forward to seeing what ya'll can create.. Pop on over to the Challenge Blog and pop your entry in.

All of which you can get from Bizzy Bec's Online Store. Bec has some really great sales and pre-orders happening over at her online store.. so pop across and have a look see.

Dont forget to entry my CANDY draw too.. ha ha (see post above - only 11 days to go!!)

I do hope you like it.. have a great day.
