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!

It is a Recipe Challenge at Fitztown

It is a recipe challenge at Fitztown this week and I made this little tag friendship book for the challenge. I used Morgan Fitzsimon from Fitztown's digital image Fae22 and a CD literature folder.  

The challenge recipe is: 

1 ribbon/bow
2 buttons
2 flowers
1 clip / stitch / fastening
2 patterned papers
glitter (any kind)

On the outside of the booklet I used two pattern papers, ribbon and glitter.   In the inside of the booklet I used the same pattern paper, 2 buttons, 2 flowers, and a clip.  I also added some friendship tags, drywall tape (for texture) and a CD for adding friendship pictures.

  2. Great project. Thank you for joining the challenge at Creative Fingers. Hope to see you again next time.

  3. What a stunning project celebrating the value that friendships bring to our lives Judy. Visually this is a very beautiful creation but what has really moved me are the quotes on you tags and the thoughtfulness of adding a CD of special memories. The friend to whom you give this will undoubtedly feel a very special and valued person in your life.
