CKC blog hop

I'm taking part in the end of month blog hop at Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  If you are hopping along you should have arrived from Lesley

I chose to take part in challenge 3 = use vellum.  As I commented on the blog, this is more of a pleasure than a challenge.  I love vellum and had included two sheets in my kit.

This page is about the good life...

 which is flavoured with raspberry and white chocolate...

and comes in the form of cake!

And boy was it good!

I've used ribbon from Cocoa Daisy kits, twine, and the awesome metallic vellum.

Your next stop is Leslie (I'm in a Lesley sandwich!!)

and don't forget if you get lost there is a complete list of the stops at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.


  1. I like the sound of Raspberry and White Chocolate cake rather than a Lesley sandwich! Beautiful LO!

  2. Oooh I have that dotty vellum but it's too nice to use but now I've seen how you use yours...!
    Beautiful page, mouth watering cake!

  3. Well that LO looks scrummy enough to eat:)

    Hope you have a lovely day.

  4. That dotty metallic ellum has been popular this month - great post and lovely page - I'm hungry now!

  5. Love that metallic vellum.Must find some and darn it ,now I'm craving cake too.

    1. Julene, you have birthday cake in the fridge, lucky girl! :D

  6. Laura, this is my favorite layout of the hop so far! Love everything about it! Thanks so much for sharing!

  7. I was in a Lesley/Leslie sandwich for many months over at the CKC kit reveal - always fun! Your page is gorgeous and the dotty vellum is gorgeous (I have several such vellums but not this one - where is it from?!?). What a scrummy page - literally and design wise!

  8. Vellum on vellum! Wow! Extra points there!

  9. Beautiful layout and a beautiful sheet of vellu.m. Love the title vellum also.
    Cindy F.

  10. I love what you did with this vellum, did not consider that at all, but a really good use of it with out cutting it up :) The cake looks scrumptious :)

  11. Very eye-catching page. I used vellum behind letters as well. Great job.

  12. oh that vellum looks so pretty as a background. love u'r use of the twine.

  13. The vellum dots look like a party & mimic the cake crumbs - design genius!

  14. superb!!! Love this... that gold dot vellum is such a fave! You've really rocked this challenge!

  15. Clever approach to the title with the bits of twine and overlapping the letters. Must make note to try this.

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
