You are probably wondering who I am.....I have been M.I.A for a little while for many reasons but I am hoping that this week is a new week and that I won't be M.I.A anymore...
Have you seen the gorgeous work our DT have been sharing with you this month? How are inspiring have they all been?
Jo started the month with a gorgeous layout of her daughter, a proud new Mum - not to mention that gorgeous cameo made with Sculpey III.
Janene shared her tea party card with the beautiful Magnolia Grove Paper Range and Collectables.
Kerry set us a wonderful challenge and shared her interpretation using the Echo Park Toy Box mini theme.
Andrew delighted us with his sensational Simple Stories Summer Fresh Collection Kit and those gorgeous photos.
And, Rebecca shared her beautiful layout using the Echo Park Sweet Day range and a trendy birthday card.
Wow! What a great month it has been. Make sure you pop on over to the online store to grab some of these products and whilst you are there join in with the E.O.F.Y Sale with 20% off storewide!
Well, I am here to share with you my creations. As you would know the challenge this month is to use:
* 3 patterned papers (at least)
* 3 buttons
* 3 arrows and
* 3 photos of different sizes.
I was extremely lucky to receive the gorgeous Little Miss range from Bo Bunny. This range is so beautiful, it was almost a shame to cut it up. I am so blessed to have 3 gorgeous nieces that I can scrap. This layout is of my little niece, Victoria, who will come home to live in Australia in a few weeks time....it is very exciting! This was the first time we met when they came for a visit in February 2011.
I have used several different patterned papers and embellishments made from this range and of course that gorgeous Manor House Flower.
I couldn't find the right buttons for this layout....hard to believe I know especially if you have a collection like me! So I decided to make my own.
All I did was trace a circle shape, the size I wanted out of chipboard, covered it in patterned paper from the Little Miss range and punched two small holes in the centre. It was quick, easy and I think looks effective.
Here is a close up....
And a close up of my embellishment cluster...
Janene set the task of creating a card with frames. I was very lucky because in the Little Miss collection there are several different frames. There are self adhesive frames on the Sticker page and there are frames galore on the patterned paper.
So, if you are looking to make a quick yet beautiful card - why not grab yourself some of this paper collection?
Here is my card....
In my kit there were also a pack of these gorgeous little angels. They are gold with an angel image on one side and the words 'Made for an Angel' on the other.
What a gorgeous little addition to any card or project you make for someone special?
Sometimes, I love dressing the inside of my cards up too....here is the inside.
Well, I hope I have inspired you a little with my share this month....it is always hard to follow the rest of the team...they are all so talented.

P.S. I apologise for the quality of photos...the weather has been rather ordinary...not good photography weather!
