My Happiness

Hi, and happy Sunday to all :)
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
We are just getting ready to go fishing with our 2 littlest boys. We stocked our dam full of trout a couple of years ago, so Im thinking they will probably catch something he he. Spring is starting to look like its on its way here in Victoria, thank goodness, its been a long cold winter. We spent yeaturday in the garden, pruning, and mulching, getting ready for spring, hopefully all our preparations will scare the winter away.

Manor House Creations have joined forces this month with Twiddleybitz, and Australian company,who make the most gorgeous chipboard ever. I was given a beautiful shadow box to play with. I have used Graphic 45's latest release paper 'A ladies diary' OMG, this paper is just divine ( ive made 2 other LO's with it, but cant share those yet) so, anyway, here is my shadow box, staring my kids, just for a change lol, Ive used lots of gorgeous MHC flowers here, and some Zva Creative pearl flourishes as well....

I sprayed the white Solitude flowers in a pretty apricot coloured ink to match my papers. 

Materials used: MHC flowers, Imagine-Blueberry, Sublime-Aqua, Solitude-White, Nikita, Leaves-dark green, Twiddlybits Shadow Box.

    Now back to the creative you - this shadow box is gorgeous as are the kids, I love what you've done with the flowers and the paper. I've finally gotten my hands on a few collections of Graphic45 and love it so much that I find it hard to cut into it so I must draw inspiration from you and others who 'just do it'. xxx
