Post from Etty :-)

Hi everyone.  I am sharing this post over at Sheila's blog today, She's a Sassy Lady, for my monthly visit.

I want to thank you all for your lovely comments and support, and the joy that you know I am feeling because Andy is finally coming home.  Only 3 more sleeps - whoop whoop! :-)

Today, I decided to have a go at using the Mojo Monday sketch, as my mojo sort of took a break recently.  Here is the sketch.

And here is my take on the sketch.  

I used all elements from one of the new Polkadoodles CD's.  This is the Winston Deluxe Papercrafting Collection and is now also available for immediate download and can be found here.

This is Etty, and I used one of the decoupage design sheets, that are in this fabulous collection.

There are so many lovely images, embellishments and amazing selection of papers.  This Collection is truly wonderful and so versatile.

For the inside I did the same layers as the front, and added a pink panel to leave a message and couldn't resist adding another picture of that fabulous post box!

And finally another shot of the outside.  I inked all the edges of all the layers with CTMH Cotton Candy and added a little pearl dot to the little flower.

I love how crisp this looks, the papers are so wonderful.

This is the collection I used.
