Something I LOVE

Kraft it Up February challenge 
 This Month the Challenge is to create a layout on Kraft cardstock or Kraft patterned paper
 about "Something you love ."
                     Due to the February challenge being posted late we are extending the challenge until 14th March   CLICK HERE to go to Kraft It Up blog        


as most of you know I adore Nature especially blooms . 
so I knew I would create with something from nature . 

Dusty Attic chipboard .. 
Dusty in Colour Navajo White : DA0903
Dusty in Colour Pesto : DA0918
 Leafy Border :DA0577
I painted the chipboard with a layer of white first, then a layer of pesto .  
I chose to use stamping as my background work on this piece 
I feel kraft paper really connects with a 'bit of stamping !!'

My Journaling 
'There are so many things I love about life.
To me, Nature provides such delight.
Blooms especially are so exquisite and pure magic to me. and the images are woven into my soul.
I adore my garden and surrounding myself with the intricate weaving of nature.\the riot os choas and color is provided by annuals and perennials.
the air is scented with the delicate fragrance to delight my senses .
ahhhhhhhh submerging myself in nature is Food for my Soul ! '
thanks for popping by and I do hope you have time to play and create a LO
on this theme.
'Something you LOVE '
                have fun and take care until next time xox
