Week 317 - Allsorts Challenge - Blue as the Ocean

Good morning Crafty Friends,

I hope that this finds you all well and looking forward to the weekend ahead. Thankyou so much for popping in.
Well, what a busy week I'm not sure where it has gone!
Some of this week has been spent getting samples ready for the Tattered Lace pick of the week and I decided to show you one of my samples that I made for Nancy's show today as my project for this week's Challenge.
I used the Charisma Sweet Pea die set and CD rom to create a notebook for all the garden notes (I must say the Sweet Pea was one of my favourites!) I used some background paper and the middle tag from one of my Heartfelt paper pads that I totally love! The Sweet Peas have been decoupaged up so that there is a lot of dimension.  The words are from a wooden set that I have and they are perfect size for this sort of project. I distressed the edges of the paper layers to give interest and added candy dots to each corner.
I hope that you like this and that you will find a minute to leave a comment.  Let me know if you saw the show and what you thought to this fabulous collection.
We have parchment class today at the shop and then Mark and I are off to Coventry on a retailer training event for 2 days so we are keeping busy!! Hopefully we should come back with lots of ideas and inspiration to pass on!
Whatever you are doing this weekend please enjoy it and hope that you can fit a little crafting in as well as other jobs!! 
Please check out the Allsorts Challenge blog and have a look at the other Team members lovely work
Thankyou again for popping in and hope to see you again soon.
Bye for now

  5. Just gorgeous Jo, like you I am very fond of the Sweet Pea, although the Poppy has to be my no one, the delicacy of the Sweet Pea is just amazing and the colour options so true to nature.
