Bonnie van Esch Designs has come up with another gorgeous and unusual scrapkit, Polly put the kettle on - available at Snap&scrap in their shoppe on 02/04/2007. Isn't it just so pretty and girly! As I am on her CT, I had the pleasure of doing a few LO's with it.

A little Freebie for you

I made a few little word art papers for an LO I was doing, and today when I saw Heather's brilliant idea of a Share it Saturday freebie list, I thought why not give away a few things I have made along the way, so I put together a few goodies for anyone who may want them. I am really very new to this, but it great to be able to give back a little as a thank you for all the wonderful freebies I have nabbed from so many.I would love to see who takes it so please leave me a little comment, thanks.


And here is the Lo that inspired the wordart, my daughter Cherye when she was a baby - she is now 13.

My first Freebie!!

This is the very first kit I have ever attempted to make, went through a few trials and errors, but I eventually got there. It is very basic, I know, but we all have to start somewhere, and I enjoyed it and learn quite a bit along the way. I made it for Bonnie as a freebie prize for her quote challenge, so if you want it, you will have to join Snapandscrap and do Bonnie's quote challenge before the end of March.

I am not a collector so this one was quite difficult for me. Then I remembered that I collect pictures and ideas of Mexican Decor. We have been renovating our house for years, and we are trying to decorate Mexican style, with all the beautiful bright colours and interesting textures. We have a long way to go yet. My most prized possession is a mirror all the way from Mexico. The pictures below are NOT my house (I wish) but taken from the photos of Melba Levick

The observation of nature is part of an artist's life, it enlarges his form [and] knowledge, keeps him fresh and from working only by formula, and feeds inspiration. Henry Moore
