Red, Pink & White

I have seen this colour scheme a lot lately & was inspired to create a number of projects for Wood'N"Pots with this in mind. 

Here are some sneak peeks - if you like them please pop in and see us at the shop!

First a Mannequin:


then a collage of flowers


and a jewelery box fit for a princess . . . .


Finally something just for me - a layout dedicated to the lovely Dakota Fanning.  We (my beautiful daughter & niece) were lucky enough to meet her at the World Premiere of Charlottes Web.  She is an amazing young lady, who patiently signed autographes & posed for photos for hours.  I wish her every good fortune for the future - I think she's absolutely wonderful.  So does my star-struck daughter (on the right)! 


Finally had a chance to play with the amazing new Grungeboard from Tim Holtz for this layout;.  I used it for the letters D & F.  I inked them with Colorbox Chalk ink & then coated them with Dimensional Magic.  It really takes the color well.  I got mine from my Hubby at  Nerinna's Nest .  I've also used it with paints & kindyglitz, love the fact that it's flexible - really great for using on mini albums and Off the Page projects where normal chipboard would get damaged over time.  Will have to play with these more!

Well that's all for today, time for bed,

Good Nite Love Corinna

One of those days . . . . .

First - I lock myself out of the house - Hubby kindly rescued me! 

Second - I decide to update my blog & include photos, but just as I am ready to take pics of the cards & layout's I've recently done, I find that the battery in the camera needs charging.

Third - I decide to write my post regardless, all nicely typed & I go to preview it before publishing & then it just disappears!!!

Oh well, the good news for the day is that I've joined a Pay It Forward Exchange over at Chookyblue - can't believe I was lucky enough to be one of the first 3!

What's Pay It Forward?

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog

So I look forward to finding out who  I'll be sending gifts to.

Fingers crossed I can post this without losing it! 

Love Corinna
