Something Different

Evening All! Hope you've had a lovely day....mine was a vast improvement on yesterday!

My training was enjoyable and interesing....all about the impact that you have on others and learning ways how you can influence other was aimed at the work place, but I'm sure a lot of it you can use in everyday life.

So with a refreshed head I took a look around blog world and came across a fab challenge over on Papertake Weekly....the lovely ladies are challenging us to do something different....what a brilliant challenge. They want to see us crafters using a fold or a technique or anything at all that we don't often do or have never done before. There are some lovely projects from the DT....a post-it note holder, a memo board, a gorgeous step card and a card featuring crackled glass to name just a few....take a peek here.

So I decided to use some of the outline stickers that I seem to have accumilated over the years, but never used! To be honest I don't really like outline stickers, I have no idea why....I just don't like them and so they lay forgotten about on my craft desk gathering dust! That changed today when I dug them out and created this card:

As well as a selection of outline stickers I have used black backing paper, some red patterned paper and some red handmade paper (another thing that I don't use very often!). The only other thing I have used is a little sticky gem on the flower.

I think the final result is quite good, but I still don't really like outline stickers!

On a different note I've been looking at the photos we took while at the Mandarin Oriental and thought I'd share this one of me with you all.....

...thats me in my plush bathrobe and slippers, sipping a glass of bubbly....the thing that makes me smile most about this is what I was watching on TV at the time......some Create & Craft TV! Ha, ha! How sad am I??

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today....I'm off for some dinner and some prep work for Brownies tommorow....we're got pack holiday coming up really soon and I need to get my activities organized!
