Brum and Fall Leaves

Hello friends

I had a lovely day at the NEC Birmingham yesterday.
After a bit of a false start, I missed both my trains due to problems getting
to the train station I did eventually arrive.
My train journey was scenic, a beautiful Autumnal day.

It was a real treat to be a shopper and browse around the stands and 
catch up with friends.
Lovely to meet up with Anne who has been a blog follower of mine
for many years, thank you Anne for the cup of tea.
Also fun to bump into many fellow crafters,
John Lockwood, Christina Griffiths, Marion Emberson,
Hels Sheridan, Dawn Bibby and more.

I also came across these ...

I made a couple of purchases - very restrained!
I selected two stamps.
I will share those in my projects soon.

Back to today and it is an Autumnal project that was featured on the
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog.
I used Fall Leaves as the main feature.
A great little die set with three shapes of leaves and also
two words, blessed and thankful.

I cut a lot and coloured them with distress inks.

Other card elements are 
Kraft Photo Corners and I affixed all the leaves in place with 

My distress inks are getting a lot of use right now,
really enjoying spending time and blending colours.
Fall Leaves is available on the website here, both new and pre-loved.

Please stop by tomorrow - it is the first Sunday of the month
and that means...Charity Kit Day.

Take care friends.

  6. Hi Christine
    Great to see you yesterday at the NEC. The last time we saw you was at the Maze of Memories last year with your Mum. Didn't know that Harwich had a craft shop and I've been going down for years. Might just try to see you when you next visit.

  7. Hi Christine, So glad you had a great day at the NEC, I have just got back from there today, had a fab time but absolutely worn out.
    A lovely plethora of leaves, beautiful colours.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
