With thanks.... & a bit of a chat...

I feel blessed to be part of this community of paper crafters.
And sometimes especially blessed! Sometimes I see projects that I fall
madly, deeply in love with. You guys are so brilliant at what you do!
And sometimes, I end up being sent happy mail that includes said brilliant
So, thank you Mary B for this one. I ADORE it!
It's a bit hard to see....but it's a trifold pocket letter. It's all handmade & it was soooo
beautiful to have in my hands and hold! I would never have the patience
to create something like this!
Of  course, I took the goodies inside and created something
else with them! And because Mary had done such a brill job of 
matching everything, it came together very easily:
 I added some bg pp with a Dusty Attic stencil behind it all. 
I ADORE how Mary coloured up that butterfly!
And of course, I did some fussy cutting. Cos I love it so much. NOT!!!!
And then, Becca C sent me this absolute GEM:
Isn't that THE cutest card EVER???!!! And the STAMPlorations stamp set that
I won is sooo perfect. It will get used a LOT:)
Here's the card sitting up in my scrap room. It matches so well;)
The other thing I have been doing is cleaning up some of my old scrap stuff.
Came across some Sassafrass Lass papers I won, years ago.
Did this:
A clearer photo:
And since we're doing pretty stuff,
here's a couple of photos of azaleas we're
growing & snapdragons that my Mum gave me.
It being SPRING in this part
of the world!

 So, there you have it.....a bit of a different post, for a change;)
Happy Scrapping, wherever you are in this wonderful
world we are part of ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  10. It's good to be reminded that the other side of the world isn't scrunching through leaves and wearing their scarves! Because the internet does such a good job of bringing like minded people together, it sometimes good to see the differences too. Such lovely things you had to show us today. I like that party girl stamp..she looks like one of the girls you see on the front of a vintage sewing pattern
