Down the rabbit hole to Wonderland

This latest journey can only be described as Wonderland.
I am so thrilled and honoured to have been asked by Eileen to be a guest blogger. Most of you barely know me and on top of it, I am not a blogger. It all started with a random email from Eileen, asking me if I wanted to do a guest post. "What?! Are you meaning for me to get this, or were you hoping to cross with my design team? Or do you want me to donate products?..." "Actually I think people would be interested to see something from you personally if you are up for it. You are coming at things from a different perspective than most of the designers that will be highlighted so I think people will be interested..."

Take it to the Irish

St Patrick's Day is fast approaching and we felt that we needed to stretch a little, but still have fun. So... Bring on the Green If it has anything to do with luck, green, Ireland, beer, leprechauns, clover, gold, rainbows, charms etc, we want you to share it with us. Stretch our imagines with your creativity. Don't be shy!

The Blogger Scramble!

What is a Blogger Scramble you ask?

Well its a lot of fun where I completely let go of any ideas or notions of what I want to see featured and let the team create what they are inspired to do.

so without further ado let the inspiration begin...

My project for this Dare is an 8x10 mixed media canvas  mounted on a pallet frame that features a photo of my Great-great grandmother. This combines my 2 loves - paper crafting & genealogy.

I decided to go for another mixed media heart - all done using some of the fab Emerald Creek embossing powders and charms and Tim Holtz Distress goodness.
