Blind Scrap

Last night over at Challenge Heaven I hosted the Blind Scrap, for those of you that dont know what one of those is, you get given instructions one step at a time, and an ingredients list.  Then you do your page and we all reveal what our pages turned out like :0)  its great fun,  Here is what I did.
 The quotations I have had written in my special quotes book for some time and I cannot remember who they were by, so unfortunately I cannot give credit :( ,  I used a little cheese cloth behind that had been spritzed with red & green glimmer mist / chalk  just to soften  lift and texturise the qoutes and that corner a  little
 The tree is a Tim Holtz die, cut in chipboard, painted in Adirondack snow cap paint dabber, and then diamond glazed and sprinkled with Mica Flakes, I just lurve these, I think it gives this an illusion of snow / ice, even though it isant cold here in Oz, its all about how Christmas feels in your heart and to me it will always snowing ! (in my head of course ! lol )
 I used Tim Holtz distress stains in Fired Brick and Forest Moss - Some TH Christmas tissue tape

Add a little Websters Pages ribbon and away we go ! I am really in the chrissy spirit now, watch the pages over the coming days / weeks !  ! lol

October @ Challenge Heaven

Challenge Heaven DT entry this month is  Ebony or Ivory + Blue and Lime Green  - so I went with the Ivory (white) option - Not my usual colours and I have to say for all the stash I have -  I didn't have much Blue and Lime Green  so I improvised  - lol    out came the bottle of Adirondack acrylic paint dabber in snow white , and hey presto some clouds in the back ground and some Texture paste to texturise the background.
Here is my take on the challenge.

T. P Fluff and Stuff  is just a little nickname I have for Tom  his initials and I have always called him fluff and stuff because he has always had fluffy hair :)  and he is full of so much lovely stuff :) lol 
I stole it from H.R Puff and Stuff and I guess it just stuck from there.
