Adorable - SATW December challenge and a sad goodbye

Hello my fellow crafty people! I hope all is well...

This post is harder than I though. It is to be published in a few hours and I havent found the heart to compose it... This is the last challenge of Scrap Around the World. It breaks my heart but this is the way things must be done. I cant even begin to describe how much I owe to the talented Helen Tilbury! Her talent, inspiration, organization skills, helping hand, leadership skills and always eager to hear and help others... I learned so much in my one year term over at SATW... Helen, what more can I say? Just a warm "Thank you" from the bottom of my heart...

Fate brought it that he last moodboard was mine... This is my layout based not on paper but on Prima Marketing Finnabair resist canvas. I used heaps of Finnabair art ingredients, Prima flowers and resins and many chipboard pieces, with Creative Embellishments chipboard being the centerpieces again. All chipboard was covered with white crackle paint, apart from the title that was covered with Tim Holtz's Distress Tattered Rose crackle paint.


A close up against the sun to see the amazing shimmer of Finnabair mica powders and various art ingredients. 


This is the moodboard. I hope it inspires you!


The mid-month reveal from the 2nd part of the DT will go live on the 16th.
