Once upon a time...







... I had the mad, crazy idea to start a blog...

The very first challenge I joined in with was
Papertake Weeklys' very first challenge - so when I saw that it's their 100th challenge this week, I had to join in!

Their first challenge was
swirls - so I dug out some swirly pearls {heehee - such things didn't even exist back then!} and kinda followed Sketch 19...and yeah, I couldn't help but pull out the MME and a Pixie... ;)






Papertake will always have a special little place in my bloggy challenge heart - thanks for 100 posts of inspiration girls!

Oh. Yeah. The original card. I need to add a li'l disclaimer first - do NOT, under any circumstances, go for a peek without first checking you have rightly secured your Tena Ladies. Ready? It's
here... snort...


Hugs,


Thank you all for your messages, support, stone throwing, advice & secret squirrel emails after yesterdays post - glad I'm not the only one!
Lynn - I'm trying to get over the weird flower thing, todays card was covered in them just for you. Lubs ya!

Beautiful card Leanne! I just LURRVE these MME papers and you've used one of those gorgeous pixie's again! As for your original card, it is very different from your style know! I cringe whien I look back at some of my cards from when I first started my blog! But that's the beauty of blogging and crafting, whatching our style and skils develop!
Hope you're having a great weekend!
Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Yay Leann,

It so great to look back and remember where we were all at, all that time ago - those were the days lol!

I wonder what we would think of our own from today in 2 years time ?

Your style and creativity will not have anyone dissapointed - this little flowery gem is gorgeous - love the way she looks like she is sitting amongst the flowers :D

Have a great Sunday,

EMma x
