My first post for 2019

Hello...Happy New Year!
A bit late I know...but this is my first post for the year.
I have really missed entering challenges, so to kick start 2019 I have created a page using this sketch from 

I have used a variety of washi tape to create the 
background behind the photo. Paper, felt and crochet flowers a sprinkle of sequins, spatters of ink and some stamping for the title and leaves.

I just had to show you this cake I made for a friends 60th....I was so surprised when she asked me, because I had only ever made one previously and that was for my daughters baby shower. I think it turned out great for my second go!

My computer is a mess with photos! One of my goals this year is to get organised...print photos and get those unfinished projects complete! The thought of it is quite over whelming, but just getting started is a step in the right direction. Another goal, challenge, whatever you want to call it....is too not buy any craft supplies and work with what I have! Now that is a challengešŸ˜„

Have a Happy Day
