some thing a bit different.

My new addiction. Collage OMG Im in love. Sorry scrap booking but this is soooo much fun.
I have drooled over mixed media collages using vintage images since well............forever and I finally decided that I should just give it a go.
Here's what i have created. A little collage for my good scrappy friend Leanne.
Its a first attempt but maybe the start of a new hobby. I can see my beloved husband rolling his eyes right about now. LOL.
Its made from images I purchased on ETSY. Gotta love Etsy!.

Here's a card I made for my beautiful Mum for mothers day using my most favourite vintage image. I don't love the way it turned out but Mum will just cause I made it for her. LOL.
My Scrap booking mojo has been on vacation but I just received a big box of YUMMY papers by October Afternoon (My MOSTEST FAVOURITEST) and some gorgeous Prima papers and my MYSTICAL DT pack more YUMMY October Afternoon and yep you guessed it some prima too, so that may be just the kick in the pants I need to rummage through my scrap mess to find my scrapping mojo.
If you find my aforementioned mojo can you please send it home. Ive missed him and all is forgiven.
Til next time. TFL.
