December = Hectic!!!

I am sure my life is no different to anyone else's at the moment - HECTIC!!! December seems to pass by in the blink of an eye with all the Christmas preparations and festivities, family get-togethers, visitors and everything else that happens at this time of the year. Sometimes with all this activity it can be difficult finding time to get creative, but I at last found my mojo and a bit of spare time to get into my DT kit from Handmade By Suzanne. This month I got to play with the gorgeous "Catching Fall" range from Lily Bee Design. Here's some of my creations...

For this LO I grunged up the Lily Bee pps using glimmermist, and included an ecclectic mix of embellishments. One of my fave items is the stunning Maya Road crystal trinket pin. You can also spy some Green Tara paper string & mini flowers; Prima lace; silver crown brad and Jenni Bowlin Studio chalkboard alphas - all available from Handmade By Suzanne. I've also included one of my own stamped calico buttons and a mini crochet flower from Lime Tree Creations, amongst other things. The flourishes were cut from some black American Crafts glittered cardstock using a Tim Holtz die by my sister - thanks Mandy! :-)

I love the simplicity of this LO, which all came together pretty quickly for me. Again, it features some gorgeous Lily Bee Design pps, which have been sprayed / spattered with Coffee Shop and Jazz Blue glimmermists and also inked. I rounded the corners of my photos using my EK Success corner rounder punch and used aqua Patchwork fabric Thickers for the title (one of my all time faves!). Simple embellishing with a Maya Road crystal trinket pin; Green Tara mini flowers (yes, I am slightly obsessed with these! LOL) and also some calico and twine.

Stay tuned, I have some more Lily Bee creations to come! :-)
(And if I haven't been and left you some blog love recently, it's not because I don't love you or your work, I just haven't had time. I will get round to visit you all as soon as I get a chance!)
