Week 288 - Animal Magic

Good Morning everyone,

Welcome to my blog and another Saturday so it must be the Allsorts Challenge.  This week our lovely Team member Tracey has chosen an excellent title for the
Challenge ~.....................................................................

Animal Magic

This should give everyone plenty of scope to think of a project and enter into the Challenge this week.

I have chosen this project to show you to give you some inspiration ~

I hope that you can see that there are two extremely cute House Mice in the middle of the lovely bright sunflower! this is a decoupage image from one of Joanna's recent decoupage packs which include all of the images of House Mouse that have previously been on CD roms so they are now available to everyone to have a play with.
The background die is also from |Joanna Sheen and it is the Lattice with the Oval aperture which cuts out separately so that this can be used on another project.
I have also cut some matching background paper and popped some of the waste squares into some of the lattice so that it adds a bit of dimension and interest to the design.  This is such an easy project as the decoupage does all the work for you.  Some hesian scraps just finish off the scene nicely.

I hope that you can pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog to check out the other Design team members work - there are some fabulous ideas. Also have a look at what prizes are on offer to the lucky winners.

Today I have a very busy one ahead as I am at the studio demonstrating the pick of the week for Tattered Lace, my first show at 8am! Having looked at the shows yesterday I'm not sure how much stock will be left for me as they were flying out of the door!
I love working with embossing folders and especially from Tattered Lace as the designs are so different.
I am sure you are all really busy now with all of your Christmas preparation but still finding some time to have a little crafting time alongside all of the busy too!
Enjoy a lovely weekend whatever your plans are and I hope that you can find time to leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my project this week.
Thankyou, as always for popping in and hope to see you next week.
Bye for now
Jo xx
