I got 3 gorgeous packages today!!!!
In the morning, I found this package stuffed into my mailbox with a bunch of disgusting bills. I got Happy Mail!!! A beautiful rak from Michelle Tan in NZ......Michelle posted on her blog that she got a big gorgeous package of felt from Netherlands and I admired it....gushed and lavished heaps of praise and admiration on them and she said that she would rak me some. I didn't think I would get so much!!! Thank you soo much Michelle!!
Ok...back to the felt...there are butterflies, there are little bits with string and beads ...the reel of ribbon is just there to give you an idea of how wide some of them are. The thick orange piece on the top of the photo is just gorgeous!!! Then on the left hand side running vertically...the pretty yellow piece with birds on it.....couldn't wait to use it...all sooo gorgeous in such funky colours!!!
Then in the afternoon, the parcel man came with two packages for me. One from the gorgeous Leanne Ryan who sent me a copy of Creating Keepsakes. I couldn't find a copy in any of the newsagencies around me. Thanks Leanne!!
Next package was exciting because I knew it was my prize from Aussie Scrap Source for winning the online component of the EDM during the Heidi Swapp month which was in oh um....Jan?? Yes, it took months...but look what I got....
I never hounded FK or ASS for the prize. Figured they might be waiting for the new range to arrive in Australia to send to me.....I was daydreaming about bling, gorgeous blossoms, maybe a new clear stamp or two, possibly the XL photo corners or the XL brads....u know....daydreaming of newly released scrapping supplies.....it would be coming directly from the distributor....they were taking a while...they must be waiting for new stuff to send me an awesome prize.....but oh boy....boy oh boy....was I wrong or what??? LOL....yes I am ungrateful....I should be thankful that I won and a prize is still a prize.....but you can't blame a girl for daydreaming for the past 3 months!!
After I got over the excitement, I sat down and scrapped. This is for Aussie Dares Dare 22 - Crown and wings. See the yellow felt strip with the birdies on it??? One of those birdies has a bling crown!! LOL
