Life's Aims

Hello,  well this little blog has been a bit quite again, not much crafting going on -  but this time I've been off enjoying a little break to Budapest, it's such a beautiful place, with lots to do and see.

I really must make a start on making some Christmas cards  - but before I do, I've another journal page to share, again using an image from Oxford Impressions April in Paris.  This little girl looks so sweet - her life before her, what will her future hold?  Random stamping with the TH Papillion background (I know it's difficult to see) embossing paste through the Doily stencil, doily die cut and cut apart stamped words, all coloured with Distress crayons.

It's time to tidy the craft desk and make a start on those Christmas cards or I'll end up buying!

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx
