Brum and Fall Leaves

Hello friends

I had a lovely day at the NEC Birmingham yesterday.
After a bit of a false start, I missed both my trains due to problems getting
to the train station I did eventually arrive.
My train journey was scenic, a beautiful Autumnal day.

It was a real treat to be a shopper and browse around the stands and 
catch up with friends.
Lovely to meet up with Anne who has been a blog follower of mine
for many years, thank you Anne for the cup of tea.
Also fun to bump into many fellow crafters,
John Lockwood, Christina Griffiths, Marion Emberson,
Hels Sheridan, Dawn Bibby and more.

I also came across these ...

I made a couple of purchases - very restrained!
I selected two stamps.
I will share those in my projects soon.

Back to today and it is an Autumnal project that was featured on the
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog.
I used Fall Leaves as the main feature.
A great little die set with three shapes of leaves and also
two words, blessed and thankful.

I cut a lot and coloured them with distress inks.

Other card elements are 
Kraft Photo Corners and I affixed all the leaves in place with 

My distress inks are getting a lot of use right now,
really enjoying spending time and blending colours.
Fall Leaves is available on the website here, both new and pre-loved.

Please stop by tomorrow - it is the first Sunday of the month
and that means...Charity Kit Day.

Take care friends.

When I saw your headline Brum, I thought of the children's tv programme of a little car named Brum. Lol. Glad you got to the show eventually and managed to meet up with old friends. Looking forward to seeing what you do with your purchases. Fabulous card and die set Christine, really love the ink blended leaves. Have a great weekend xx hazel
