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!

Anything Goes Challenge at Fitztown

I am hosting the Anything Goes Challenge at Fitztown this week and this is my project.  I have decorated a cheese box for this challenge using Morgan Fitzsimon's image Fae 37

I had lots of fun making this box.  The image was coloured with Copics, Gell pen and glitter.  I decorated the cheese box using my Gelli Plate using colours that I used in my image. The trim at the bottom part of the box is Washi Tape stained with Tea Dye Distress Ink. 

I completed my box by adding some knobs that I stained also with  Distress Ink, die cut butterfly, bling and some metal elements.
