About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Trick or Treat

This week at Come and Get It Challenges it is a Anything but a Card challenge and Fred, She Said Designs is our sponsor. Fred, She Said Designs offers a wide variety of digital products with a floral flair and cute characters too - Digi’s, Pre-colored images, Papers, Sets, Fred’s Flower Kits, and even digital cutting files. Have some fun with Fred!

Random.org will choose a winner, and the winner will receive $10 to spend at Fred She Said.

I decided that I would use the Flat Back Treat Box pattern newly posted in the Splitcoaststampers web site and two Halloween images from Fred, She Said Designs. I think the Halloween images are so sweet . I tucked the puppy dog named Halloween Rosey into the edge of the box so that he would be in front on my design and I used a spring to hold the Emma the Cat out from the back of the treat box to give the image some depth and movement.

To complete my treat box I added a ribbon, some glitter, black Magic Mesh and a sentiment.

Come and join us at Come and Get it Challenges this week. Have a creative week everyone.
