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!

Make Your Own Challenge at Place to Start

Another great challenge is happening at A Place to Start this month.  The Theme of the challenge is "Create Your Own Challenge"

Make you own challenge using one of each of the project type, event and trend. 

For this challenge I chose to use 

a shaped card  (a side Step card) for my project type 
the event is my nephew's birthday
my trend is Nuvo

 The products I used for the challenge were Copic Markers, Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamps and die cuts, small pompoms for the hats, nuvo on the balloons and a Happy Birthday die cut. 

Closer Look

This was a fun challenge and card to make.  Have a great month creating and I hope to see you back here again.
