I need tags for those SPECIAL PRESSIES - so all personalized and ready to go - I need at least 2'

She here are mine:

Why is it that colours never look right with a flash photo in the evening?


CBC CCAD 9: ' PRESSIE for someone - anyone you like - if you are very clever you could even make it to fit the box you made'

I used a 12 x 12 paper (can't remember what it is) that has squares all over it, made into a little maze book and simply putting a photo on each square - for our DIL:

Sorry, but photos of photos don't come out very well, particularly with flash in the evening.

BF Advent 19

This is what I got today in my advent box - a pen that has the choice of four different colours (I remember having one of these when I was younger):


The challenge for day 10 on CBC is to 'USE A PHOTO BUT you must make something Christmassy with it.'

I've used a photo taken of our back garden when we had snow in April and made a simple last-minute Christmas card:

CBC CCAD 8 + Cute Card Thursday open theme

At last I've done CCAD 8:

you can make anything you fancy AGAIN BUT your creation MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING
* 3 flowers
* 3 Gems
* 3 scrolls

The background paper is HOTP, mounted on to matt silver. The scrolls were cut on the cricut using Brenda Pinnock paper (which has a slight mottled effect that doesn't show here):

It was nice to make something other than a Christmas card.

I'm also showing this for this week's Cute Card Thursday which is an 'open theme'.


The challenge for day 17 on CBC is 'Some ART for your Christmas table - Can be anything you want - place settings, serviette holders you decide.'

I bought a couple of candles, like this:

and decorated them:

The lovely Sue has just said that I can also use this for CCAD 7 - a Christmas decoration - because I did make two of them, so one for each challenge!
