Scrap 2 Relax May ATC swap

I love being apart of ATC's swaps I find them really inspiring. Helps me to get my crafting Mojo flowing. I started taking part of Scrap 2 Relax's ATC swap a while ago and next months theme is oriental. As I started making these cards I had a completely different idea in my head but then as it goes I couldn't find the right stamp set and as I was frantically looking for the particular stamp set which I must add is still Missing in Action I come across this beautiful paper pad song Bird by Graphic 45 and was inspired to drop my hunt for my missing stamp set and use the very oriental papers instead. Although this swap is nothing like I intended. I am really happy how it turned out. Even in a messy craft space you can find Inspiration.

I am not dead yet!!!

Hi Everyone,
It's been quite a while since my last post not much of a blogger I must admit but I just wanted to let you all know that I am not dead yet!!!!. In fact I have been very busy with some extra training. I have been teaching copic coloring at a wonderful store in Drouin called Scrap -2-relax I was very lucky to be given this position and I have been really enjoy the classes with some very talented and clever ladies.
I also had the privilege thanks to Karen at S2R to do my basic and intermediate copic training and I am now a certified copic designer it was a wonderful 2 day training course which was an excellent experience.
 Which brings me to why I have decided to blog again. I have really been enjoying my copic coloring but I need to start sharing my work so that I can grow my skills and share my love with other like minded crafter's. So I have challenged myself to start entering my work on a few of the challenges in blog land and to start blogging the cards I have been making since I started using alcohol markers and of course to try and keep this blog current with some interesting posts.
So bear with me lovelies I'll be back soon with my latest creation to share with you all.
