Anything Goes At Scrapbook Sisters.

It's the first challenge of the year at Scrapbook Sisters and it's a nice easy one so everyone can come and join in. Challenge 17 is Anything goes so come on, give it a go.

I used the Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook Cartridge to the cut 3 circles to achieve the Easel and to cut the 5 layers of the flower. The leafy swirls were cut using the Calligraphy Collection Cartridge.

The Papers are from the Fine And Dandy 6"x6" paper pack by My Minds Eye,all the edges are brushed with a chalk eye.


I used self adhesive pearls for the flower centres.

I hope you come and join us in the challenge,
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

My goodness Julie, Id love to be able to make one of those flowers, it's amazing - love the pearl button centre too.

Thanks for dropping by my blog today, I just wanted to answer your question and say that Yes, the Low GL diet would suit a vegetarian, my other half is a fish eating veggie (pescatarian??) and there are some nice veggie recipes in that book that we all enjoy, although Im sure you would find heaps more online too.

Happy New Year!

Love Julia x x x

i have yet to discover the joys of papercraft, seeing your blog makes me feel very inspired to do so. your creations are beautiful and your blog IS very pretty.
thank you so much for visiting my blog. i am a friendly and inquisitive person myself and don't think you at all strange. infact it is very interesting that you mention a thyroid condition, it is something i hadn't though of and yet my mother has hashimotos disease wich is a thyoid condition. something i should perhaps mention to my doctor.
well, i am very happy to have met you and shall enjoy getting to know you through your blog.

happy scrapbooking xxx

hey, i was a florist at one time too. my very first job, training as a florist in a london hotel and then for longman's in ludgate circus. although i went on to have a dancing career. i love flowers and anemones are a particular favourite of mine too!
i have a vase with three bunches of violets sitting beside me right now, sent by a sweet friend. they even have that lovely delicate violety smell mmmmmm heavenly! such a treat on a cold, wet january day.
it's so exciting when we meeet people here and find we have things in common.
