EMBRACE each DAY
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #54}

This week our theme for Challenge #54 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is EASTER I used the Girl with Bunny image from Eureka.  You can purchase the image here. I have also used the Bunny with Flowers image from Eureka.  You can purchase the image here. The sentiment is  from DigiDarla.  


I have used Copics for all the colouring and I love the effect of the dots on her apron which was created with the Colourless Blender. The flourishes were stamped with Chiswick Acrylic Stamps.  The design papers are from FabScraps and Making Memories.


Hope you will play along this week - so come on link your Easter creations to Tammy's Scrapin Corner's Challenge No.54. Can't wait to see what you create.





Here's just a few pics of my {Doing Life's} stand at South Africa's biggest annual craft fair in Johannesburg, named Hobby-X.  It was the second time I have exhibited at this craft fair and am pleased to say that our sales were up by 25% from 2012 and we have met so many new scrapbookers.  Thanks to everyone who visited our stand, supported us or even just popped in to say hi, without you we would not have been successful.  Also a huge thank you to my dearest and loyal friend Michelle for all her help standing on her feet for 4 consecutive days and talking non-stop.





Off to link this creation to the following challenges:
A huge welcome also to all my new Followers who have entered my 500-Follower Celebration give-away and also thank you to my loyal and faithful Followers who have also entered.  There is still time until 14 April 2013, to stand a chance to win one of the three $15 DigiStamps4Joy Gift Certificates.  So come on enter, you don't have anything to loose.
