Surprise parcel in the post today - Pay It Forward

Woo hoo, just take a look at what I got in the post today. This is the most fabulous journal that has been made by my blogging friend Zoe. Zoe I can't thank you enough for this wonderful gift and your thoughtfulness with the sentiment behind it. Do pop over and see her fabulous creations at This Little Place.

Zoe knows I used to love my holidays in Swanage with my Mum and the whole of this fabulous project is to do with holidays in Dorset and being beside the seaside. This will be a treasured book Zoe and I will keep it specially for journal notes, sketches, ideas and pictures of the seaside. It will become an inspiration for art work relating to that theme.

This all came about back in January when I commented on Zoes blog when she post about the 'Pay it Forward' idea to make and send something to someone who left a message and also promised to take part. I blogged it at the time but no-one took me up on it, but it's not too late. If you would like me to make you a surprise something then let me know in the comments box below and you must be prepared to do the same for someone else and blog it too. If you have already blogged the 'Pay It Forward' message then let me know as I am sure it will count.

Thankyou for the lovely tag too Zoe and your sweet message.

MAWTT Challenge 89 - For a male.

Hi Blogging friends. Today the challenge at MAWTT has been set by the lovely Lisa and she wants us to make cards or projects with a male theme. We were given some images to play with from our sponsor this week, Ellephantastic, and I had great fun with mine. You know me, I like to change the style to vintage if I can and this modern digi became Rory the footballer from years ago.

This is quite a simple card for me but you can't really embellish a boy card very much can you?

Supplies used -
Backing paper from DCWV
Footballer and football boots Habico embellishments and grunged up.
One brad
Image coloured with promarkers and then washed over with frayed burlap DI.

Do go check out the  samples from our fabulous DT at MAWTT and our sponsor at

Hope your week is going well and that you are managing to get some crafty time.

Take care.
