Just cos

Its not often that I manage a blog post without a challenge of some sort on it so enjoy the moment.
I have had fun over the last two days doing craft stuff for work. Fairly simple but good! My small church is entering a URC Multicultural Story Award. In order to tell the story we did some things in worship that have ended up creating a tree - which I stuck together at home and then creating a Bind it all book to explain it. It was very hard to just stick things in without embellishing but I felt that would make it my contribution and not the church's if I did

SO here we are...

this is the finished poster - there are mustard seeds on the bottom and our hands make up the leaves (bet it takes yer back to infant school eh?)
and a few pages of the booklet. Plain and simple. The Dreamkutz comes into its own for doing things like this. I would still have been trying to get the card stock uniform size without it!
(yes that is me at work. Wearing lipstick. It was a Mothers Day present from Carys)

Last night I also made a card using scraps on the table.
The "h" was for the "sheep" on my Salt layout but I cut it back to front, so cut another letter to match. All the papers are Scenic Route Laurel (nearly fnished that set now!), the ribbon is Basic Grey and the buttons are all bazzill I think. Oooh no, two are Scenic Route Grafton. Ink, foam pads, nestie; scallop punch. Done.

And so am I. Long day today. Long day tomorrow with the fun of working out just how to post the above project....

Hi Lythan, thanks for your comment on my blog. I investigated and it seems the old irish flag is incorporated into the union jack but sadly wales isnt - thats not fair, is it?
Shall we start a petition?

That book and tree look fantastic - aperfect idea for something that all ages and abilities could join in with. The book, with its photos will be a lasting snapshot (pardon the pun) of the project and the people who made it
