A new challenge, a goodbye, a welcome and some scrapping

The new challenge is up over at the shabby blog.

Is all about this
two part criteria:

including this quote in whole or part:
'Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly'

Here is my project.


I just knew what I was going to do when Mandy and I were talking about the challenge details.
How could I not scrap my online bestie. She is an awesome person and someone I am very lucky to call a friend.

The quote is on one of my favorite stamps.

And it is with this challenge that we say good bye to one of our Shabby girls and welcome to another.

Toni, I am so going to miss your gorgeous work on the shabby blog. Thanks for being a part of the team.

Corrine, I am looking forward to working along side you. Your work is beautiful.

I have had a very nice scrappy filled few days. I created a card and bookmark on Wednesday night when friends came over that I posted in the last post.

Thursday night I created my shabby project.

Friday night I made up a card


I have seen a few people around using their Coppics to colour on Kraft and thought I'd give it a try using my Doodled flower set stamps from Purple Onion.

Probably not the best colours to use but I only wanted a subtle tinge to the kraft.

Here are the colours I used.


Saturday I started work on my ASJ layout which I finished of today along with two layouts and a card.

Here is one of the layouts as I needed to get it up and posted here before I missed another challenge deadline.


I created this for the current challenge over at These are a few of my favourite things. The challenge is about your favourite challenge blog you all don't need two guesses on which one is my favourite. Let's get shabby of course. It would have to be seeing as it is our baby. Mandy and mine that is. lol

Well that is it from me for now. I'll share the rest of my creations when I can.

As always thanks for popping in, any comments and happy creating.
