I'm visiting Magnolia down Under this week, the girls have kindly let me join in on the challenge
as I haven't got my Copics out for awhile I was feeling the urge to colour and use one of my new stamps.
This weeks challenge is to use your favorite colours, what are mine I asked as they change over time I thought I will go with what I am enjoying at the moment and what colour card stock I am always running out of.
My colours are Plums Cream and Blue

 a little treat I bought two days ago some bling with a bit of old world charm
drop on over and check out what all the lovely DT girls have made at Magnolia Down Under

Today is the day

Sunday at the fair
a few more display items that will be on display at the papercraft fair today drop on by should be a great day.

 had so much fun creating my time box I wanted to put a wind up music box in it as well but surprising had trouble locating one, if any one knows of a place in Australia that sells them, would be welcome knowledge.

the Musical Christmas papers will be available at Charlotte's web stall

In a box

Some things leed to another my inspiration for this project came from a ceramic ornament hidden away in my china cabinet and an old tree decoration helped make it complete.
took me a while to complete as I wanted it to be well planned

looking forward to setting up the display for todays show will drop on back soon with photos of the stall and special memories.

Indulge in the moment

some advertisements seem to instantly attract your attention, this advert did more than that it also helped with inspiration, I too wanted to capture something special.

My jar doen't have the beautiful story in it but I still love the look I too want to have a row of special jars
I wish the advert went a little longer or is that what makes it so romantic, a glimpse.

I have used the squares  from the label of the card-makers pack to make the key tag

Beginning to look like Christmas

well normally about this time I'm saying noooooo not yet but having to think ahead has helped me get a little enthused about Christmas this year. It it is nice to change your decorations every year even if there is one addition to the collection, very soon all my cards will be Christmas ones for the countdown towards the 25th of  December.

 this frame matches the two small previous ones, combined with my favorite Dusty Attic Chipboard clock and scroll edge.

Fragrant Decoration

Since Christmas last year I have discovered making candles having the choice of my favorite scents which tends towards caramels and cinnamons.
These scented candles have such a warm inviting aroma of,  Maple Pumpkin bread, combined with the other scent of Apple Caramel cider I thought my candles would look nice with a little decorating to match, and because my sash's are on the outside they are perfectly safe.
