I Like Surprising People

and I have been working on something
Plodding away
Doing a little at a time
Lots of layers
To create a surprise for someone
Today I finished this


and now it’s on it’s way to surprise someone
Hope they like :)

I had left over paint from this page
I wiped it on some white cardstock to use later
Yesterday was that later :)


Shipping tag from PaperandParcel
Chipboard buttons SuchSweetTierney


Only a smidge of journaling


and some washi tape from PrettyTape (grid tape) and DudlyRedhead (red tape)


Busy day here
Some cooking, some washing, some crafting, some shopping, some lunching with Lucy, some sunshine, some pumpkin picking :)

Pin It Now!
