Guess who's back and ready to play My Mojo Monthly

I know to say its been a while is an understatement! I'm going to try and give blogging another whirl. If I can remember how to use it that is. Its been a busy 18 months or so, we are now parents to a beautiful baby girl called Mya Rose. Shes just over 6 months now so I'm just starting to find the time to get creative again.

She doesn't give me much free time in my room so when I found this ATC challenge I thought it sounded ideal. Whilst blog hoping some time ago I found an amazing blog called LA-DE-DAH  after some time I realised shes only lives half an hour away from me, how strange when a blog hop all the way from America lands you almost home!  I was really inspired by this months My Mojo Monthly  challenge I thought I would give an ATC a go.



ATC's seem a really good way of using up left over stash, producing something relatively quickly and not having to worry about photos.
I'm really happy with it, it felt good to get something finished that didn't take hours of planning like my scrapbook pages.
I have bought a 7 Gypsies ATC drawer, it may look a bit lonely in there for a while but I'm sure i'll be adding to my collection.
For this ATC I have used some Pink Paisley Butterfly garden paper, I've added SU glitter to her wings, a ribbon Buckle, a vintage button and lace, a Melissa Frances tiny resin frame and a Prima art tile.
I used my new Ingvild Bolme paper distresser and its my new favourite tool.
The small vintage text is on fabric which was very kindly made for me by a lovely lady called Viv, she makes the most beautiful handmade items using vintage finds.
I really enjoyed making an ATC, why not join in on Sarah's blog.
Until next time.

Hugs
Rae
