More mystery goodies.....
All the way from bonny Scotland - thank you so much Lou!
The first item out of the box was this fantastic mini canvas - I think he has something of the Mighty Boosh about him :) He's currently being proudly displayed on my desk at work as that's where I opened up my parcel, but I will bring him home soon.
And then there was all this too:
Think we can safely say that I've been properly spoilt :)
Loads of goodness in there, but my favourites are the handmade paper, the boot stamp, the black and white spotted washi tape, the texture tool, the textured chipboard alphas, and, most of all, the amazing corrugated card mini album that you can see there in the middle of the photo.
Here's a better look at it, it's properly awesome!
It's all put together with co-ordinated travel themed papers and embellies, and it's in just my colours, I can't wait to add some photos to it, I think I'm going to make a geocaching themed mini book with some of our best caching pics.
But that won't be for a while, so I've done something different for my "use 3 things make" - a page in my pair journal
I've used the boot stamp, the copper Marvy pen, and the washi tape. And I also used some dark blue tissue paper that had been used in the packaging of my mystery gift.
It has ended up looking a little different from my usual pages but that's what's fun about using stash that has been picked out for you by someone else, it's fun to be pushed outside your box a bit :)
But at the same time as saying that, it's also very "me" - I used to live in my Docs, and still have a few pairs. None all pretty and tie dyed like these though .... although I wish they were!
Thanks again Lou for the great gifts
