Hello everyone, I hope you are all well .
Sadly this is my last post for 
Megs Garden
I have decided to step down from two of my Design teams 
you will still see my work on Maja design , Dusty Attic and CSI 
This year has been exhausting for me 
with Baden having Cancer and an ongoing health issue of my own 
I am feeling burnt out .
Meg very kindly invited me to do some guest spots if I want to .
Thanks so much Meg for having me on the team for more than 2 years 
I have enjoyed the journey designing with the unique papers, big hugz x .
Today I have another layout for you using the new Correspondence Paper Collection 
designed by Kerry-Jean Watson for Megs Garden 
these papers are the perfect marriage with the earthy hues I love .


the stunning photograph was taken by GEORGE SAAD 
I am very grateful George gave me permission to use his photos in my work

I created lots of different shaped tags with the paper and have them poking out from under the layers.
Correspondence Collection
Vintage brads 
Marion Smith papers..Nirvana
cottage cutz/ leafy dies 
 I love to light candles each night and watch the dappled light create a soft relaxing atmosphere.
when I saw these papers I knew I would use this photograph .
I used lots of layering with diecuts 
These blooms work in perfectly with the theme .
a cluster of the rose buds, the small ivory roses 
with some diecut leaves .  
 I cut this heart with the paper and then light rubbed on some Rusty hinge distress ink 
to create contrast ( these papers absorb the distress ink beautifully )
for the final touch I applied some crackle paint and a vintage brad .
lots of layering of diecuts with touches of Rusty Hinge distress ink  
more layering under the photo 
I find that the extra strips of matching paper 
are fabulous for layering on my work .
