I searched high & low - was it amongst my scraps? So I sorted and filed all my bits, still no luck. Was it among the DSP - resorted & organised? OK so lets go through all the embellishments, the book case, the catties, anywhere really.
Now keep in mind it went missing back in January!!!!! 4 Months ago!
I desperately wanted to use it to make my swaps for convention, but it was nowhere to be found - Until after Convention of course! I opened a box that contained samples I'd made for a Christmas Fundraiser and there it was!!!! Yay - so excited! So of course I had to use it.
Funny though how we all see things differently - my daughters comment was "I don't really like that - looks like Hospital Crosses" think she means First Aid! LOL
This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is a colour challenge
During convention I was lucky enough to meet most of the JAI Team - it was really nice to meet them in real life & get to know them a little. They really are a lovely group of ladies.
Anyway on with the challenge - here's my creation:

Here's my entry, a quick and simple card:

Please rest up because I will be home soon, and you'll all be getting a workout when I get back.
Love a Deprived Papercrafting Addict. xoxo
7 nights ago we headed off on a family holiday which was arranged around my baby cousins wedding last Saturday - which was just perfect.
It soon became evident I had underestimated the free time I would have & what do I like to do in my free time? I like to create!
I recently acquired an iPhone which I love and this has allowed me to check in on my fav blogs & check emails (mostly Stamping related). It soon became too much temptation/inspiration, but there are no craft shops around!!!! What's a gal to do???
First I purchased a cardmaking magazine thinking it may help - nope, but it did come with papers. I've never actually used the freebie papers before because they don't really appeal but I am desperate!!!!
Just Add Ink's Challenge this week is to be inspired by the colours in your favourite Chocolate Bar Wrapper.
Anyone who knows me knows I love peppermint in all it's forms - particularly Cadbury Mint Chocolate so I picked up a block of the Bubbly to use with this challenge. The Green Gingham paper seemed to suit - but I needed more supplies!!!
I coloured this cute little gal in colours to match & voila! But it needed something - a Scallop Border courtesy of a 20cent coin & my sketch book paper. You might think I had some Crumb Cake C/stock, but nope that's my Grain Bar box. The ribbon was from the hang up bits I cut off my new top.
Here's the result. . . . .
Don't look too close though as the edges are rough & not one is really straight, hence my heartfelt letter to my precious (straight & even) guillotine. . . .
One more sleep & I'll be home, even better I will actually have some time to play with my toys....
Thanks for dropping by. . . .

LOL I hope I didn't get you too excited. No I've no special news on the new SU In-Colors, I'm actually sharing the gift I prepared for my friend when we celebrated the arrival of the latest set of Colors - yes - way back in September last year!
