Bits n Bobs

I have just finished Natasha's CJ page. This CJ is small and in the shape of an envelope book so we had to create an ATC size layout and decorate the envelope to put it in. The challenge was to use just paint, ink and embossing...no embellishments. Now that is quite a challenge...to be embellishment free. The stamp was quite small and of waving or cheering hands. I really wanted to do something quite different so I stamped and embossed onto black card and then tried my hardest to make the hands look like trees! I then used one of my favourite quotes and came up with this.




On another note here is my submission for this weeks MMM's oriental challenge. I cheated here as this page is a few weeks old...hope thats OK?
