My image organiser

Good morning everyone. I've got something to show you today that isn't a card, it's something that I really enjoyed making and I actually like the end result. Now that makes a change!

This little project was made for the Creative Card Crew Challenge. We have a recipe this week and one of our new girls, Claire, picked the ingredients. When I first saw the list I went (gulp) how can I get all that into one design? Well, let me tell you, it was easy peasy. I won't spoil the surprise - hop over to the challenge blog to get the recipe.....and while you're there have a look at the beautiful makes the rest of the lovely DT have made for you.

We have another member on the DT this week. So a big welcome and {{Wave}} goes out to Donna. I just know you'll love her clean, crisp style of cards. What an inspiration she's going to be to you all.

Okay, this is my little image organiser. I first saw one of these projects over at Victoria's blog and I fell in love with it straight away. So, off I trotted to buy myself one of those templates. Thanks Victoria! I love people helping me to spend my money ;o)

This now sits proudly on my craft desk and I slot my images in for the weeks makes into the little compartments (I pencil on the back which challenge each image is for). Talk about getting myself organised!!

I've done it again - The Bearly Mine CDs came out once again (promise I'll use some different papers tomorrow). I inked the edges with Tim Holz Broken China distress ink. The flowers are a mix of Papermania and Making Memories. The ribbon is a Celebrate one (I left it loose in the middle so that I can slip the edge of the lid underneath to keep it closed). Flower brads, gems and button are Papermania and the leaf punch is a Woodware one. The template is called 'Card Couture' from Papertrey Ink.

I hope this has inspired you to have a go at our recipe this week. There's a prize up for grabs from

and this is what you could win
Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
