' THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX '







This week sees the start of a new Theme at Gingersnap Creations - Hot Beverage and my Debut as an official Guest Ginger - great word Debut......lol and am loving it, such a welcoming group of talented artists.







'Thinking Outside of the Box' was great fun to design, I used Silver Embossing Powder, Glossy Accents and Papermania paper. Stamps used: Hero Arts, Beryl Peters Collection, See D's and Loncraine Broxton.

Can you keep a secret?.......I die cut this piece of card from a Porridge Oats Box (no expense spared....) hence the title. But don't tell anyone, its our little secret..... lol

To get more inspiration for this theme pop over to Gingersnap Creations where there are some wonderful creations and join in this fun challenge.

Thank you so much for visiting me and for all your great support. Be Happy and Take Care, will see you later, Annette x

I think the fact you used an old cereal box makes it even more special as not only are you creating art your recycling and saving the planet at the same time and boy what a debut piece you are so freakin talented it's scary!!! xx

Hi Annette

I bet we all use strange things in our crafting .. .. truth be known.

I have nearly emptied my porridge oats box .. .. would you like it sending over LOL!!!

Great creation. Love the colour combo very much. Brilliant images too.

I don't like Tracy's character in Corrie .. which I suppose means she is playing a good part. She is supposed to be the opposite in real life but I bet she is labelled a nasty piece of work anyway!!

I didn't know she was leaving the street. Does that mean she is the 4th funeral? I have been hoping it wasn't baby Hope.

Can't believe I have rambled on this long about a soap!!! Get a life Jules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love Jules xx
