FOR YOU ...
{1ST ABC DESIGN TEAM PROJECT}
I am quite nervous about my first DT project for ABC Challenge, but nevertheless had fun creating it. The theme for the current challenge is FLIGHT and I thought it fit to stamp up my butterfly. Once again the main feature is an iris folding window. All the cardstock are from my favourite BG ranges. 'For You' are some foam letters.
Please take some time and visit ABC to view all the other DT members' gorgeous interpretations of Flight.

Flight-flat

A cute wagtail couple are sitting on two eggs in our garden. They have done this perfect little nest between some leaves in one of the aloe trees. Can't wait to see the little chicks. I have always been fascinated by these small birds whose little mannerisms truly exuberate happiness. Love watching them dancing around catching insects whilst constantly wagging their long tails. Will try and take some pics when Mom and Dad is not on the nest.
Wishing you all a happy Wednesday.

  36. Desire, nervous? You work is stunning! I remember seeing it on the challenge and thought, maybe I'll do butterflies and the more I looked at your work, the more I was convinced I couldn't do as nice a job as yours, so I settled for something easier. I LOVE the Iris folding technique - it is fabulous. And my goodness what an EXCEPTIONAL photographer you are. I had to go back and RE-READ that you took the photo shoot. WOW! I loved the "matric farewell dress." It turned so unique and lovely!!! Oh, the photos, I was like, whoever took the photos did an awesome job! I'm so envious - another passion I'd love to be good at. :D I really enjoyed your blog. It is so very interesting with so many things! Thank you so much for taking the time to kindly comment on my blog. It is so appreciated. Wow, your crafting is awesome!
