GOLD! Simply GOLD!... & Design in Paper Challenge;)

Hey there, my scrappy friends!
I'm up on the OFF THE RAILS blog today
with some ideas on creating a few GOLD embellishments, based
on a pile of You Tube videos that I've been watching.
I'm taken with gold atm!
Here's a bit of a 'teaser'.
These are great for the Pocket Letters, File Folders and Flip Books I'm currently
OBSESSED with making!
And just so you have SOMETHING to check out if you're not one
of those peeps who pop on over to 'other' blogs, here's a bit
of Happy Mail I recently sent on its way.
A flip book:
A handmade heart and glassine bag.
The front.
I made and stamped on this little bag, too.
And below, a different one I made - a mini pocket letter!

Anyways, enough chatter.

Onto a NEW challenge, for me. Courtesy of ANNA U, who
gave me the information how to join in over at
The sketch, by Marie is this one:
And here is my interpretation. Not my 'go to' colours,
but the photos dictated them & I was happy
to get some stash out and used!!!
I was very blessed, a couple of years ago now, to fly down
for Sue's birthday bash.... FINALLY scrapping these snaps!
I've used my [new] Wink of Stella pen on the foam title here.
LOVE the subtle glimmer it gives! A few little stickers
tucked in around the place, too:) 
All the wooden stars were coloured with my red Big Brush
 Pitt Artists pen, then 'Winked' up! 
I'm a member of the 'Hey Nae Daily Happy Mail Group'
[hence all the happy mail photos!] & I just got a LOVELY
one from Katie Perry in Wales [hi Katie!!!!]...
it was wrapped in this DIVINE black & white polka dot tissue
paper....which got promptly stuck on here, wrong side
up - cos the colour looked better. DELISH! 
Even managed to jam a rhinestone in the middle of that 50 up there, LOL!!!
Thanks for looking ~ hope you're having a GOOD week &
getting some scrappy time in:)
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
