Random post

Hehe... just using the Crate Paper 'Random' collection, which I love by the way. :)  I haven't realised that I haven't blog for so long.  Must mean I had a great weekend. :)  In fact, it was quite a relaxed weekend. Lol! Everybody in Perth went to see the Queen, except for me. Friday was a public holiday for WA, because of CHOGM and DH took Monday off as well. It was great having him home for 4 days. :) He works way too hard. :(
Now, back to 'Random'. The first one I created for Sue's October challenge at Scrapbooking Top 50. The criteria were Pink, Petals and Pearls. The pics are of my DD not long after her 16th birthday. :)
And a close up of some of the fussy cutting.
I've used my new Martha Stewart 'Swirling Lace' punch to cut the borders and used my Tim Holtz Mini Rosettes die for the blue rossette.
 A homemade denim banner and loads of pearls.
 This one was pretty much created using the papers and Chipboard Accents from this range.
Some fussy cutting. :)
 Some of the yummy chipboard accents.
 More fussy cutting.
 And a card using some of the left overs with a bit of Crate Paper 'Farmhouse' in the mix. This was based on a sketch for Vicki's October challenge at Top 50.
Phew! What a long post. Hope you made it to here. Will try and do more regular post in the future and keep it shorter.  Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
Until next time!
