Created for Sarah


Over the last couple of weeks we have redecorated Sarah room.  It’s pink, it’s pretty and very girly.  Sarah was so so excited when she walked into her new room.  She did not know that we were planning it so it was a big big surprise.  All the hard work was done by Neil while Sarah and I were on holiday in NZ.


I do like this pic of Neil showing Sarah how the feature lights around her mirror work – they have a little remote control so you can choose from about 12 different colours, fades, flashes and brightness – so cool. 

Sarah jumped for joy when she saw it all.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA 

Prior to all the hard work (and our holiday) I decorated the letters of Sarah’s name to go up on her wall.  I was wrapped with how they turned out.  It looks great up on the wall with the butterflies around it too.

JAI # 174 – Color combo

With the new 2013-2014 Stampin Up Catalogue, an exciting new range of colours were also introduced.  Two of those colours are featured in the Just Add Ink Colour Challenge this week.  Here are the colours:


These colours are so beautiful together.   I made a little gift bag, using one piece of A4 card stock.DSC00147 (2)

The Star in the middle comes from the Artifacts Stamp set (now retired).  After I embossed the background card I then rubbed a bit of ink over it to make it pop out.  I really like the contrast of the bright fresh blue against the faun/brown.
