My Creative Day

Today I opened my Mixed Media Kit that I got from Blue Bazaar.  It is a Kit of the Month arrangement and each month you get a selection of items to try out and a couple of projects to follow on the web.  Of course I didn't strictly follow instructions but I am happy with the results.  My plan is to bind the finished pages to make a book at the end of the year.

Here  are today's effort, the 3rd project is about a 1/2 way complete, I'll try and finish that on the weekend I think.

Last night was my mate Helen and my birthday tea with the girls.  Here is the photo of my loot.  I must say as usual we were very spoiled by our wonderful friends.  I got 3 bags, a sewing kit, some japanese linen (divine), a scarf also divine, a book, note paper, a bangle (gorgeous), a voucher for shopping at Hetties and some chocolates.... which didn't last long its amazing how much chocolate you need when you are painting.

Catch you tomorrow for FTF.
