Guest Designer

Warning- photo heavy!!

I was extremely chuffed when the ladies from A Trip Down Memory Lane  contacted me and asked if I would be a guest designer for them for April.
I waited for my surprise box of goodies they were going to send me to arrive and I was so thrilled to see that it was all right up my street. They sent me the latest releases in from CHA- Bo Bunny Gabrielle range and they are absolutely beautiful.
Luckily I love butterflies and flowers so got to work ...The gallery is up now so I can at last show you what I came up with..If you want to see the other projects from the design team you can see them here.

The colours of these  papers are gorgeous..
 On the first browny toned one I punched the butterflies from some tissue paper that one of the boys had his shirt wrapped in from one of those American shops they all get their stuff from nowadays. When he unwrapped it I whipped it quick before he screwed it all up - what are us crafters like !!
I used some of Tim Holtz's tissue tape to make a rosettey flower.

Did a bit of stamping on this one.Good old tissue tape again!

Last but not least a mini concertina book and a card...
This was all  new to me but I thoroughly enjoyed it!

You were quite deservedly asked to be guest designer and your projects are absolutely beautiful - you hide your talent under a bushel.

Such a well deserved Guest DT spot!! I LOVE what you did with the kit...all of them are stunning but if I had to choose a favourite, it would be 'Photoshoot'! BTW I love the tip of using that packing tissue to punch butterflies...they look great TFS!! :)

p.s. I really enjoy the '3 Jolly Scrappers' Friday Crop...Jo & Kim are so nice & they bring along a well stocked 'shop'...always a good turnout of friendly & talented scrappers...hot drinks, chocolates & home made cake...lots of laughs...& best of all, plenty of time & space to work on your own projects!...recommended!! :)

Absolutely amazing! You've made some beautiful layouts and other projects - I am SO impressed!
Having seen those cute butterflies, I noticed that R had bought her boyfriend a tshirt from that shop and made her secretly save the tissue paper it was wrapped in after he had opened his presents ;-)

Wow, Denise! What can I say apart from from - you have done them proud! I'm not surprised you were asked, and on the strength of these beautiful layouts - maybe we'll see you back with them again!

Those papers are so lovely too
