WOYWW 105 - the great PiF reveal!

I think I actually squeaked out loud yesterday when I realised that my PiF had arrived from Lisa.  It was such a great thing to be involved in, exchanging handcrafted gifts with people who were strangers before last Wednesday but from now on will hopefully be friends.

So here is my desk for the week, part way through sorting scraps, buttons and ribbons, and part way through a layout about B.  I just need to add some stitching as it was part of a class - typical me that I changed it a little bit from the example we were set ;-)

And here is my lovely gift from Lisa, this wonderful door hanger which is now inside my craft room door (to prevent little fingers investigating....)  The flowers are gorgeously shiny and the colours are just beautiful.

And here is my effort, not quite as I would have liked but this is all new to me.

It came out a bit brighter than I anticipated despite my best efforts to grunge it up but there is a lot of me and a lot of love in it.  The music paper, hearts and vellum butterflies are things I use often on anything that is for me (like my notebook).

So there we go, that was the week that was.  Check out more desks on Julia's blog 

Bye for now xx

  6. Oh how gorgeous is that scrapbook page - and if you didn't change it up a little, it wouldn't be yours really, huh! I agree, your PiF gift from Lisa is a stunner. As is the one you've made - and indeedy, the whole idea was to make a gift that had a bit of you in it. Check!!

  8. Hi Lisa-Jane. Now I'm blushing!!!! I'm so glad you liked it, it's definitely got lots of me and lots of love in it just like yours has. I love what you created, those butterflies are beautiful.
    I never realised I was sending my pif to the lady with the pink polka dot table!!! I know who you are now.
    Your LO is stunning. I love the large flowers. You have to alter pages to make them "you" don't you.
    Happy WOYWW my new friend.
    Hugs Lisax #115

  9. The PIF you sent is indeed beautiful and I love it . It has pride of place in my living room at the moment as i need to get a space for it in the craft space. I love the vellum butterflies and the colours. Thank you.
    Love the page.
