Posted on | Sunday, July 17, 2011 | 25 Comments

A little chance to share the love of this fabulous product!!!  For a good chance to win one of 5 of these  (DA#0501) gorgeous snowflakes collections from the Dusty Attic simply become a follower and I will chose the random 5 winners, from all of the the end of July I will post up the winners names to contact me with postal address so I can send off these fabulous items.

For inspiration on how to use these products and more go to (and see below) I am certain you will enjoy this site!-  PLUS the ever so gorgeous Mandy Harrel has just restocked her fabulous etsy store with very good prices for Dusty Attic chipboard at - you will find a permenant link for her shop at her photo on this site ;)  Have fun!!!

Below is a project that I have started to create using the snowflakes:_

 Above is the Front Cover page of our travel album:  The theme is Winter's as that is our family name...and below is the end page for the album - reading to be continued, as we love travelling to these beautiful, warm countries and I believe that we always will...

I have painted the snowflakes in Jo Sonja's white paint and used "chrystalina" kindy glitz to sparkle on top - too easy ;)

About Me - Concise Biography

My photo
My work history is varied and diverse. From the high profile studios of NWS Channel 9, to the exciting aviation industry, I have a resume' with an extensive list of skills and experience. I reside in sunny Australia. The main purpose of this blog was that it was started out of necessity but has grown into something I enjoy. “To Do What You Love, and Feel That It Matters, What Could Be More Fun?”. I believe this particular industry promotes self esteem in many, whilst being part of a Design Team helps businesses and friends but most of all I love all the fantastic messages that one can give to another through this avenue. It assists me in my endeavour to leave the world a better place… (and as Barbie would say at the beauty pageant "and I wish for world peace";) Hoping that you find some inspiration from my work!
