Here is the first completed layout using my Things That Shine kit. I have a couple of others on the go but they need titles and words still...
That is one kit! I'll easily get 4 -5 complete layouts and then another 2-3 half layouts...
I was unsure about the leaves but when I coloured the stems gold instead of white I found them less of a struggle to work with.
I love the seam binding and the way it soaked up the mist I threw at it!
I've just noticed that the main reason I bought the kit - the squirrel buttons and the acorn charms - still sit unused. I seem to have slipped back in to the 'if I use it I won't have it left to use in the future' rut. Note to self: Oi! You don't play like that any more!!
It may be a while before I finish the other Things That Shine layouts as I need to start work on my Counterfeit Kit duties for October, but they'll show up sometime. I've loved working with this kit.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hello! I was away longer than anticipated. Health, argh! Any way positivity is my way of thinking - it could have been worse, it is how it is and I will soldier on.
I have been easing myself back in to crafting. Strangely I managed to do a fair bit of purchasing whilst unable to actually do any crafting :)
On my desk today I have a layout in progress...
Being made with goodies that arrived from Canada. I bought some Things That Shine kits from etsy. This is just one kit...
Rather scrummy, I think you'll agree! Then I have these to play with later...
Today's aim is to ink this stamp up for the first time...
Thanks for stopping by. I'll try and get to your desk if you leave your linky number but no promises as I'm not pushing my body - if it needs rest, it gets rest!

I'm not going to be around for the next couple of weeks so it'll be quiet here, but don't worry, hopefully I'll be back refreshed and recharged.
I'm going to take some time away from technology, computers and televisions.
I'll definitely be back with some excitement in October! I'm going to be a Queen! :)
