Coffee and Cream at TIOT

Hello Everyone and thank you for calling in  today.

We have a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and the theme is Coffee and Cream but if you would rather use two other colours instead then you can. For inspiration and ideas pop to TIOT and see what the rest of the team have made and then join in with your ideas as we love to see what you make for our challenges. If you are chosen as one of our top 5 you could be a guest designer in a future challenge.

This is a digital scrapbook page with a photograph of my dad and my aunt both long since gone, unfortunately, but never forgotten.

I started off with this beautiful freebie page made by Astrid. Thank you Astrid for your beautiful gifts and wonderful inspiration

Next I added this and that and when it was all assembled I changed the colour to fit in with our theme for this week.

Can't wait to see your makes

Love Chrissie xx
