Alpha Challenge Letter C

Hello to my Friends and Followers and thank you for popping by and leaving such wonderful comments on my projects.

I made this page today for the Alpha, Dictionary Challenge at The Craft Barn. It is a wonderful challenge and I am sure I will look forward to making every one of the pages


I scanned the relevant pages from my dictionary as I was unable to find an old one. The word I chose for C is Carnival and it was the first word on the left hand page. The background is painted in various H20 colours and spritz with Cosmic glitter mist.

The stamps are 4 I have had for a while-they are made by Tabby Kat. I stamped 2 of them straight onto the pages and the others I had already stamped and coloured a while ago so I stuck them on.

Thank you for the challenge and for looking at my page

Love Chrissie xx
