And I'm back...

Sorry to those who came vis the Ruby Rock It blog hop. I appreciate all the concerned comments. Mum is doing much better. She is home after a very extensive surgery and the long term outcome looks good.

Meanwhile, I have something special to share today. This project is something I created a long time ago. I made this as my entry for the Spellbinders Design Team. I was really pleased with it at the time, and was completely devastated to not make the team,so I have been hiding it away for a little while.

Anyway, it has since been shared on the Down Under Direct blog, so I can share it here now as well. I have used lots and lots of Spellbinders dies on this one and lots of different techniques.

Today I mailed away my submission for the Heartfelt Creations DT. Their dies are manufactured by Spellbinders, so it would be awesome to make that team.


Here are a few more shares from the blog as well. One for the boys...Circles are my favourite dies to use for boy pages. 
 


 

and one of my girl...I love the detail in  the new embossing folders.

Wow, the month has flown by yet again. Apologies for not posting more recently, but Michael and I have been away in America.

While away, I got the exciting news that I am a semi finalist for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team.

Next I have to make some projects with some gorgeous products they have sent me, which are so perfect for my style. I can't wait to get started. You can see the whole announcement here. There are lots of other really talented people who also made it this far. Tough competition that's for sure.
