What I am Reading Right Now...

I am reading the Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.  Now almost a year old I finally had a chance to read it and I can't put it down.  I love that the reader is able to solve the mystery through the eyes of the different characters and different time periods.  I haven't enjoyed a book this much since reading the Twilight Series. In my opinion? An excellent read.

Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

Today is the day for the Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop.  I am so excited as this is my first time participating!  The challenge this month was to either use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or one that might be collecting a little dust.  I chose to implement both into my submissions.  Heart Prints was the first PTI stamp set that I ever purchased so I used that to create a clear embossed background on my card and then I chose a new set, Love Birds, along with its co-ordinating die for my focal point.

All Supplies from PaperTrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  Dark Chocolat, Vintage Cream, Berry Sorbet
Stamps:  Heart Prints, Love Bird
Ink:  Dark Chocolat, Berry Sorbet
Other:  Double Ended Banner die, Love Birds Die, clear embossing powder

and so it begins...

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.   

After pulling back on Scraphoria two years ago, I took time to look after myself.   I have regrouped and I am ready to get back into the swing of paper crafting again.  Through my blog I really hope to inspire my visitors offering card, scrapbook and project samples, tutorials and resources to those who come to visit.  Email me anytime to ask a question or to just say hello.  I hope you have fun joining me on my journey.
