So here I created a garden scene.  Many years ago I did quilting and sewing
as one of my hobbies, I have a thing for Toile & Ticking,  just love it.
I had a Toile scene from my stash of many boxes of quarters and cottons. 

I used Gesso to stick the piece of material on the card stock and
worked the beautiful papers around the scene. Gesso on some fence chipboard.

"My beautiful butterfly,
when I look into your eyes,
I see a wonderful life,

White with One - DT Challenge JAN 2012

White with One challenge this month is to use

WHITE + LIME GREEN + BUTTONS

I went through all my stash of boxes and found all these cute buttons
that were green & lime green.

I made this layout of DD (again) (the light in my/our life)
This really was a challenge for me as Green is not usually a colour
I would use. But is was so much fun.
This is what I created. I even made those big silky flowers myself.
I think they are great, what a great idea - use some of scrap stash and make things
like flowers etc.

YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE
WW1 - DT CHALLENGE JAN 2012
So, please pop in to White with 1 Blog here   http://whitewith1.blogspot.com/

and check out the rest of the DT creations, they are so amazing :)
