CSI 220

The blue shows up brighter than in reality!!!!
It's definitely paler, never mind it looks good.
How we love cherry season Not as good this year, our winter was far too wet!!!!
It covered 2 areas of the challenge documenting something about food and the inspiration words tradition and sweet

I used heaps of older labels, found some gingham the perfect green, stitching of course keeps everything in place.

Found these old rubons and they still worked!!!

Nov 15th CSI case file

I haved used leaves, bow, metal , bird, hearts and my testimony  is about visiting  this  local  castle called Iandra. A very unusual site in the middle of a wheat farming area in Australia .  Built in the early 1900's by an English  family that moved to here. It has a fascinating  history including becoming a home for wayward boys when it deteriorated. Its  been restored gradually  opening several times a year .  I have known about it for 40 years but it was only this year when I took my daughter and her friend  to visit ! I was overwhelmed  with the history  and restorations. Worth getting out and visting!!!!!!!!

Stuck sketches August 2016

Would you believe I nearly forgot to post this!! Some times I finish the page, motherhood makes inroads and you think I'll do that later!!. Then it gets lost in transit completely escapes the mind!!
I had fun experimenting with some new stencils from Crafters Workshop!

My twist was to put the circle on top instead of underneath!! TFL

Love this Challenge, bright and fun!!!

I focus on the circles and created layers of patterned paper ( plain with self prints)
and stacked them, I used the patterned paper in bg to make all the colours work together!!

Stuck Sketch July

Great sketch to work with!
I just love using multi photos, especially various sizes!!

I love to layer with fabric, this green lace was my fav summer top that tore beyond repair!

This white patterned paper is kaiser-craft , fabulous for the wedding look!

June Sketch +3 Challenge

Polka Dots, Quote and Red.

I really enjoyed working with this fun sketch, creating my own polka dot paper with this Kaiserkraft stencil and particularly using this sticker sheet (Highline Basic Gray) from my stash that I had never touched!!!

Kraft plus and Stuck JUNE

I think a perfect combo this month, I had to rotate the sketch to use the photos I chose!

The stencil in the bg is new one from Kaiser TFL
