Well, I am curently supposed to be getting together my craft bag and projects to take to the Craft Retreat this weekend. [organised by my lovely friends from Lovin'Ink ]. But how do you decide what to take and what to leave,  so as I  still have another day before we head off to Yorkshire, I will craft while I am deciding.[ hows that for an excuse].
This hanging is made from stuff lying around on the shelf above my desk.
A Crafty Individuals  frame, embossed with antique gold highlights one of their stamps. The papers and butterfly are from the Debbie Moore CD that I was using the other day, when I looked for the sunflowers.
All the shading is distress inks milled lavender and antique linen.
This will fit the themed for a  couple of challenges-
Just for Fun- Timeless Vintage
Sir Stampalot-Its a frame up.
