coming along nicely...

I've really missed Blogland lately but there are only so many hours in a day, and so many of mine have been taken up with working on the CD rom. It's really coming along nicely and starting to take shape. I'm so pleased with how everything is looking and can't wait to share it with the world, I hope you all love it as much as we do. The main problem I'm having is we keep coming up with more "must haves" to include.
 Ofcourse there are lots of gorgeous girlie images but I know how hard it can be to come up with interesting cards for men and teen boys, so with that in mind I've included lots of Sumo wrestlers, Koi carp fish, birds and so much more. I thought I'd give you another little sneek peak.
 I'd love to know what you think so far. There's still a couple of days left to sign up, follow and leave a comment for a chance of the great goodie bag. x

My first scrap canvas

Have you ever tried using your craft skills for home decor? I love to do this. Why not have a try at some scrap canvas.
Simply take any box canvas, you can pick them up at so many places really cheaply. Then paint your background colour in acrylic paint, I used a lighter colour, then the blue and painted a crackle medium over the top.
The photo was mounted on navy cardstock and ripped and chalked the edges. You decorate however you like, ribbons, flowers, brads, accents - you choose. The wording was cut from a Cricut cartridge, I think it was Joys of the Season!
Soon, I'll post the gorgeous "secret" canvas I made with Lindsay Mason - keep tuned in.
Remember to sign up as a follower here on the blog, (you probably need to open a google account - some people have struggled a little to leave comments) and leave a comment telling us your name and the area where you live. There's a bumper blog candy up for grabs.
Any problems and you can email me
Good luck x

Wow, have things been crazy, crazy around here! The fun stuff that has been keeping me out of mischief is my new secrect project. It's a secret, but I'll tell you about it!!!  In my last post you were treated to a sneaky peaky at Kimoni, just one of the cute images on the CDrom I'm working on. Both me and my trusty techkie have been working almost non stop to get this together, and we love it. I hope you will too. We hope it will be ready in the Autumn.
As I'm sooo excited about this, I'm feeling particularly generous and decided to give one lucky person a huge bag of blog candy.  All I can tell you is it will be a host of  paper craft goodies. So, all you have to do is enter the draw by leaving a comment with your name and home town and then sign up as a follower on the blog.
A winner will be drawn at random at the end of August. So sign up and good luck x
