Even More Beautiful......

Hi everybody, it seems ages since I last blogged.... yep a whole 10 days.
Well let me tell you a story lol.
Firstly I had to make my DT samples for Jem`s designs brand new cd`s which were on Create & Craft on Wednesday ( I hope you saw it) I had the pleasure of using the Even More Beautiful cd and wow it is fabulous. The other one is titled Lililicious. They are only available from Create & Craft until 31/8/13 then you can get them from
Once I finished my samples and posted them off to Sue. I had a mad moment.
I have been wanting to decorate the craft/office room for quite a while, so last week when it was at it hottest I decided to do it, what a fool I was lol. It was a case of do a bit have a break, do a bit have a break, so instead of it just taking me a couple of days it took me a week. So of course after that was done I had to buy myself a shelving unit as I could not just let all my boxes of craft sit about willy nilly. Lets just say its tidier but I need some proper A4 containers now to make it look even neater. Please let me know where I can get them, nice and cheap of course.
Well that`s enough of me waffling on.
Here are my samples and a couple of piccies of my room now.
This card shape was hand cut from template, I hope it does not show.
This shape I found on Pinterest
Again this one was cut from template
All the images and backing papers from Jem`s Designs cd.
Flowers and ribbon from stash.
Now for my room,
The strange object to the right of the last piccie is my killer of a cross trainer.
