Busting to Tell!!!!..... and Fond Farewell

Happy New Year lovely ladies!!  With it comes a tonne of happy news... :) 

I've been just busting to share a few exciting developments on the creative front!  Here is one of them...

I'm on the Dusty Attic Design Team for 2012!!

I'm just thrilled to be on board over at DA.  They have always been an absolute all-time favourite chippy product of mine, so I was sooooo pleased to be invited onto the team for this year!

Dusty Attic also have a new blog up and running to celebrate the New Year also, so come over and check it out!  A new release is coming this month also.  I can't wait to show them off!!  Watch this space.

From one extreme to the other, it is with much sadness that I post my last layout for Kraft It Up.  My two consecutive six month terms are up, so it is unfortunately time for me to hang up the kraft, so to speak!  :)  Promise I'll still use it from time to time though.

The challenge this month is to use this colour palette (some or all of them) in a layout, using kraft as your base.

I must admit to being a little bit overwhelmed when I saw this vibrant combination, but the kraft really does soften it quite a bit.  :)

Here is mine:

{in my happy place}

Hmmm.... wonder who makes those chippies!  lol   Dusty Attic and Prima really are made for one another huh?  and yes, I'm still in love with Prima's mistable canvas!  :)

Best be off.  We have just returned from our New Year's weekend away at our lovely friend's farm.  The kids just didn't stop from dawn to dark, so I think I need to finish the washing and get dinner on the table before they fall asleep in their plates.  lol

Here's to a new year filled with new creative adventures and friendships.

I'll be back really soon with a Boxx kit share.

Cheers for now,
