Guest at Papertake Weekly

Hiya Peeps,

It's me again. I'm worn out and with good intentions this week of joining the gymn.  Even more to juggle in my life but something that needs to be done! Onwards and Upwards as they say...  I was asked sometime ago if I would Guest Design for Papertake Weekly which I had to put off until now, due to my busy workload,  but now they have me for the whole of July so I hope I was worth waiting for, lol.........

The theme for this week's challenge is Anything Goes with the option of Buttons.  The sponsor this week is Lili of the Valley so what better excuse was there to use one of my gorgeous LOTV stamps.  Although I've just realised I haven't coloured the spots on her hat, lol, never mind.

Aren't they just soooooo cute.

Here's a close up of the lasercut chipboard dragonfly coated in black acrylic paint.  Very intricate wouldn't you agree.  You can get these lasercut chippies from Make It Crafty and Quixotic Paperie.

Papers by Websters
