Well I know I have been MIA for the last few weeks but it has been a crazy month.  I took some time and out went on my first overseas holiday to the USA with my husband and some friends.  It was simply AMAZING, and needless to say I will have plenty of LOs using photos from my holiday posted soon enough.  But for now I just wanted to share a card I made for my Grandmother to say Thank you.  I used some bits and pieces I picked up from a craft shop while in the USA and a butterfly I had made months ago but never used.  

It was kinda funny because when I started this card I had a whole other idea in mind and was getting really frustrated because I wanted to used a really pretty piece of card stock I just loved, but I could not get it to work.  Funnily enough when I gave up on using the piece of card I liked and just played around with some other card stock I had it all came together surprisingly quickly.  

Lesson learnt today:  "if something is not working, try something else before I turn into the Hulk."

Scrap Therapy

I had a great time doing the blind scrap for Scrap Therapy with my BFF yesterday.  I have had this photo of my nephew for quite some time and just love it, so I was wrapped when the LO all came together.  I must give credit to my BFF you pulled me out of my creative black hole when I was feeling a little stumped and could not get the LO work the way I wanted it to.  The sloshes of mud on the LO were her idea and I think they are what made it all work for me.
