We are having a brand new challenge over at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge!  Our theme for this month long challenge is : Red, White and Blue!  Remember, you have to use an Elisabeth Bell image....anyone will do!

DCWV Black Currant Mini Album

Hiya Peeps!

Just a quick post.  Here is an Album I made with DCWV's Black Currant Paper pack.  Initially I really struggled getting everything to work - colour scheme, but after the first 2 pages I was off and away!  I am really happy with the end result, and this has turned out to be one of my favorites!

Here's some pictures:

And a video:

That's it from me for now!

The Paper Crafting Journey Challenge....and some News!

Hiya Peeps!

We have a brand new challenge over at The Paper Crafting Journey!  For this fortnightly challenge our theme is : "Colour it up".  This means you can make any card, just as long as your image is hand coloured!!  So we are basically almost having an anything goes challenge!

This week we are sponsored by Inked Treasures which has generously offered the winner 4 Digi's of their choice.  Don't we just love our sponsors!

Here is my card:

Ok.  So let me tell you what I've been up to this week.  I bought a Xyron 9" Sticker maker.  Received it in the post today!  Jipeeeee!  Now I have this machine, and now I so do not know what to do with it.  Really, for what am I going to use this????  Only time will tell.....  DH will kill me if he knows I bought it and now do not know what I want to do with it....LOL!

And now for the NEWS:

Our wonderful Lisa Sumpter has stepped down as Blog Owner / DT Coordinator from The Paper Crafting Journey.  We want to say a huge special thank to Lisa.  She did such an outstanding job.  We started as a DT, but became a family through her.  Lisa, we love you...

I will now take over The Paper Crafting Journey!  I am super excited that Lisa entrusted me with her baby.  I will do my utmost to fill her shoes!  We will also move back to blogger - our old site.  Thank you Lisa.

That's it from me for today.
