Lots of Goodies

I have had two deliveries this week - the first one arrived and I thought "I haven't ordered anything this big" and when I opened it I got a huge surprise - a lovely box of goodies from Birds of a Feather Craft Together for being the lucky winner of their Card Challenge.  It was beyond all my expectations.
Carol and Sonya have their January Challenge up on the site so pop over and consider having a go.  See Sonya's creation here. I printed out some photos today to have a go myself. 

Then a couple of days later a box of Dusty Attic goodness arrived (prize from October Challenge) so I am looking forward to creating some more.  Dusty Attic also have monthly challenges and a wonderful inspiring gallery. 

Over on the Prima Blog at the beginning of the month they wanted to know reader's New Year's Resolutions and while I don't really make them I decided that this year I want to participate in their Build a Page Challenges and get them in early instead of last minute.  JANUARY - ACHIEVED.  A wedding layout of the Bride and Groom.

The majority are Prima items but thank you Birds of a Feather for the Pink Paislee Artesian Elements which just finished the journalling card.  Also used was a foam lily flower used for decorating on the day.  The Prima gate was cut into pieces and used in three places.  I liked the heart flourish on it and incorporated it with the Prima vine which had lovely calla lilies and hearts.

Thanks for visiting.
Bye for now

Yay for happy mail Dianne! Your page is stunning, I love how you have used the Prima Gate, and added so much detail. Thankyou for the 'sales pitch' for Birds of a Feather. Love your new look blog.
