OK - my french comment - this wonderful blogger who has stunning images from everywhere contacted me earlier this month and asked if she could post a few of my projects... It is so nice to actually have someone ask instead of just posting them nowadays... so of course I said yes... then things got busy and I have only just sat down to really look at blogs and now blog myself I have had a chance - Check her blog out - so many images remind me of growing up in Europe and the travelling we did... I will work out how to post a comment tomorrow - I have done it before already lol!!!
Next :) Twiddleybitz - we have had a full on month!!! Earlier this month I taught at the True Blue Craft Fair and we have also since then announced our new Design Team - welcome to everyone of the ladies on this team! I am inspired every day by your creations and will update my side bar tomorrow!!! We also in the middle of this had a cross promotion with Manor House - their flowers are stunning... I still have a few left to create more projects I just had to save a few for the right one lol but here is what I did...
Towards the end of last month I had to say Good bye to my buddy - my beautiful Casper my husband gave me for Christmas back in 1994 - yep he was not far off being 18 human years which is very old for a cat - he used to rule the neighbour hood and his best friend was a rottweiler :) so he would take on all the dogs... in the end he had a stroke I think and this photo was taken of him and me in his last hour before we took him to the vets... he was simply a very cool cat who is very dear to me... and I miss him in so many ways every single day.
I also created this next project combining a few of my DT projects in one... Helmar... Twiddleybitz and Manor house!!!!!! I have always used Helmar glues.... but until I got my DT pack from them I had never used their Decoupage and Craft paste - not looking back now!!! This shadowbox was put together and stained using a wood stain.... then I used the Helmar Paste to add the paper - old book pages and a Stampington & Co paper
