Flowers galore!

Hi, I'm back! 
Have had a hugely busy month.  My oldest daughter had her Debutante Ball last week, and has another to go to next weekend, combine that with dance rehearsals, classes, competitions, and performances. Plus working and teaching.....and doing lots of DT projects.
I've been busy scrapping lot's of things to send  to Liz at Artfull Crafts for SENZ.  I've finally finished my travel journal...think I should have picked a shorter holiday to scrap.  Will take photos tomorrow to show you.

As you may have realised, I love making and using flowers on my pages, ...luckily I have daughters!

 All these flowers are handmade, or fussy-cut from the Pink Paislee and Graphic 45 papers.

Another layout, this time with Prima flowers.

I altered these chipboard flowers by Glimmer Misting, embossing (heat & dry), inking, and adding glitter.

 Don't forget to get your entries in for the Scrappassion challenge this month.   You just need to follow the tutorial to make these easy handmade flowers and use them on your layout.  Get the details here.

'Cutie' Flower Tutorial & some photos from Creative Block!

Here's another flower tutorial...

 I had an amazing day today.  I finally met Liz, the owner of Artfull Crafts in New Zealand (who send me all those lovely Design Team parcels) and she is so lovely.   I got to play all day at Creative Block, which is three days of  classes, make & takes, talking to manufacturers, and shopping at Printblocks.  I attended a class with Cindy Wilson from Provocraft, & did 'make & takes' with Maya Road, Prima, 3L Scrapbook Adhesives, and Graphic 45.  
I have a few photos of the gorgeous Graphic 45 stand to share with you.  All I can say is WOW!!!  Take a look for yourself.....

 Jane Treganza's stunning book- this girl is seriously talented!  It is done in the form of a "pop-up' book and is amazing in real life.  The photos just don't show how exquisite this is.

More creations by the Graphic 45 design team.....

 This was an covered scrapbooking album - beautiful!

I'll be back tomorrow with some more to share!
