All Downhill From Here?!!…

Can you believe that we are already at the halfway point of 2011?!! Six full months behind us & the remaining six start right here…today!!!  Just thought I’d point that out in case you hadn’t noticed!!!!

As it’s the first of the month I have a lot of creativity to share, so I’ll keep the chat to a minimum (if at all possible…you know me!!!)

I thought that this would be my last month on the DT over at Dixie Pieces & therefore my last time of sharing my kit submissions…but no!! Sherry has kindly offered a three month extension…of course I readily agreed!!!

The Dixie Pieces kit for July is called ‘Tropical Paradise’ & is a dream! Bright colours, varied textures, interesting embellishments & a wonderful array of alpha’s…something (if not everything!!) for everyone!!

So…what did I do with it all?!!!

Firstly, a few LO’s…

1 '3 Jolly Scrappers' 
Hi! Ann & Hilary…hope you don’t mind being featured!! I love this photo!!!

2 'True Colours'
That polka dot tissue paper is wonderful to work with & adds such texture!!

3 '(Cheese) Cake' 
There’s Hilary again!…she’ll be charging me royalties if I keep this up!!! Check out those zipper flowers…I’ll be raiding my sewing box to make some more of these!!!

Then I struggled with how to use that Maya Road Watermelon chipboard mini…

...& decide to bind it into a mini memory book for my recent trip to Mallorca!!

4 Mallorca Mini Cover

5 Mallorca Mini Pages

6 Graduation


…& finally…with the wonderful news I shared in my last post! I had to make a card for Hubby…

…the inside reads “ with love from your very own Mrs Robinson!”

The silhouette was cut…funnily enough…on my Silhouette!!



You can check out all the Dixie Pieces  DT kit examples in the Gallery & every day through July there will be a scrap lift challenge in the forum. The first one is up already, so get over there & check it out now!! I do hope I’ll see some of you playing along with us this month!

That’s it from me for today…I’ll be back soon with another LO & the latest challenge from ‘From Screen 2 Scrap’…Thanks so much for stopping by & I hope you’re all enjoying ‘That Friday Feeling’!!! :)
