About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Good Morning All
The theme this week for the Allsort Challenge is ORIENTAL and has been set by Susan.

I did like the sound of this but was not quite sure of what to do.

I saw this lovely digi, from Digi Darla, and thought it looked quite oriental.  They were to be one of our sponsors but they have decided to close their store through illness I believe.  Then I also remembered a set of stamps I bought years ago from Lakeland and never used.  I did not want to colour the stamp so just added some Stickles to some of the leaves, but it does not show up too much on the picture.  I coloured the digi with Promarkers and was so glad I have some of the fine nibs as they were definitely needed for this one.  I had some chinese paper in my stash too so added a strip of that across the bottom.
The lace corner is Cheery Lynn B175.
