A ROSY DAY

{DT Project Lady Anne's Paper Crafts: Challenge #5 - Friday Sentiments}

Busy like crazy prepping for two scrap days I am presenting here at my home studio tomorrow and Sunday. Baking some cakes and preparing eats for lunch for these two scrap day.  Looking forward to having all the scrappy ladies and gents over for some scrapping fun.

Our theme for the next fortnight Challenge over at Lady Anne's Paper Crafts' Bi-weekly Friday Sentiments Challenge is Anything Goes (but always have a sentiment).  How much easier can you get.  So I really hope you will play along.

The Little Girl digi is from LilyPinkscraps and you can find her here.   The flowers and embellishments are from my stash.  I tried my hand at paper piecing her dress and hat and the remainder of her was coloured with H2O's and dry chalks. Dry chalks have also been used on the sentiment. The paper tag behind her and the paper piecing design paper is from BasicGrey. The lovely green lace ribbon attached to the tag is from the lovely Channa {Crafts & Pieces} who posted it with some other wonderful crafty goodies to me all the way here in South Africa - after I won a prize from her blog.  The sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC.

Looking forward to seeing you play along over at Lady Anne's Friday Sentiment Challenge #5.



I would love to try the following challenges with this:

Okay, so me and my darling hubby have been married 28 years today and it was also a Friday the day we got married on 30 November 1984.  I just cant believe how the years just seem to fly by - it feels like yesterday.  We are celebrating with an early supper and then seeing the new Bond movie - Skyfall straight afterwards.


Thank you to all my lovely Followers old and new for all the love you leave behind.  Please know that each and every comment is treasured.  The promised 400 Follower celebration candy will be up for grabs during the course of next week - so don't stop keeping your eyes peeled on this little space in blog land.
