Fabulous Friday!

A big hello from me!
I hope you are all well and that your week has been a good one.
I have had a fabulous week. It was my daughter Claire's birthday lots of celebrating and still more to come this weekend. Then we had a visit from the Olympic torch come through our village which was such an amazing day I can't tell you. It passed right outside Luca's village school so we were able to take him out of school to cheer the torch on. It thrilled me to share this historical time with my family and one I will never forget! Today it is the last day of the school year so another landmark for us.
I would like to share with you another Teacher thank you card and present to say goodbye to Luca's amazing teachers.

I have altered a paper bag. The border is a Magnolia Doohickey die cut as is the Heart Tag. I have added Platinum stickles.
The cute Magnolia Tilda is coloured with Distress Ink Pads.
The papers are Pion.
The seam binding The Ribbon Girl.

Here is a photo of the inside insert.

I have added some Sakura clear glitter pen to Tilda.

I have painted this pencil box then added some Maja paper and lots of Magnolia Doohickey die cuts and Tim's grunge numbers painted in crackle paint.

I painted the corrugated paper and added star dust stickles.
The heart border is Martha Stewart.

Before I go I must share a photo of Claire and Luca with the Olympic Torch bearer.

Thank you so much for your visit with me.
Have a most brilliant weekend!

Hello Kim!

I'm so sorry that I haven't been around for a while, I can see I have many new breathtaking creations from you to be inspired by.

Your week sounds marvelous! How exciting with the olympic torch.

Your school themed paperbag card is absolutely divine. Love the feather underneath your beautifully coloured image and the punched borders on the top of the card. Looks amazing!

Such a gorgeous pencil case too! Love the "abc"-letters and the flowerarrangement you've created with your Magnolia Doohickey dies. Love the combination of flowers, pearls and swirls. A piece of art!

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Kim

What a fab week you have had and I am glad that you managed to enjoy the torch with your family. I was on my way home from work in rush hour traffic when the torch was through my area so I missed it completely :-(

Gorgeous projects for the teacher - so thoughtful and different and I bet Luca's teachers loved them.

Love Kerry xxx
