I would like to finish by saying thank you so much for the comments that people have been leaving.  I know for last 5 months I have been a really poor blogger following a huge upheaval in my life.  To be honest my heart has not been in crafting or blogging at all but I really appreciate the comments that you have so kindly left me.  I am still really deflated and down but I hope that within the next few months I can start to get more pleasure out of my crafting and get back into it.  A huge thank you to my family and friends who have been so supportive during this devastating time for me, huge hugs to everyone xxxxx

Back To School

I know it only seems two minutes since the schools broke up for the summer holidays but this week at The Paper Shelter the theme is Back to School.  Mind you I guess they will be starting again in a few weeks! My eldest grandson, Harrison, will be starting this time how fast the time goes.  Here is my card:

I have used Back to School Madness available here.  For my card I had to use the coloured version as my two year old grandson thought it would be a good idea to scribble all over the image I had already coloured!!  The papers are Echo Park For The Record 2 and all the dies are Dienamics.

Be sure to have a look at all the rest of the DT work over at the Paper Shelter Challenge. Don't forget there is a fabulous prize for the lucky winner:
