Go Wild At FSC

Today is a very emotional time for Andrew and myself as we are saying farewell to Dot.  She will be leaving us in Melbourne and heading off to her home town in Portland.

Tomorrow sees us flying off to Singapore for 4 days on the last leg of our month long holiday.

Words cannot describe the incredible time we have had but over the coming months I will be blogging photos and hopefully albums/scrapbook pages of our amazing time with Dot and Australia.  

Thank you is not enough Dot but I am saying it anyway.  See you on our next skypeing session where we can really start reminiscing about our fabulous time together.

You are one very special lady.

Hopefully the next time we see each other will be in the UK!!!!

We are Going Wild for this month’s challenge at FSC,

Sandra picked the theme of Let’s Go Wild and wild is where I went.

These two remind me of some of the wild party scenes that I went to in my youth.

 FSC has a new sponsor … yay our very own Dot … how amazing is that?  She will be offering a different stamp for the winner of each new challenge.

Ink Art Designs Etsy Shop

 Ink Art Designs is an Australian based Etsy shop owned and run by Dot Leathbridge.

A wide range of stamps are available which include a mixture of clear polymer and rubber.

The Etsy shop was originally started in order to offer a wider range of stamps to Australians.  It has since grown to include a world-wide audience.

FSC is also welcoming a fabulous Guest Designer who is showcasing an amazing tag for this month’s theme, her name is Elisa from 2crazycrafters.

I would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.

    First of all, I can believe it’s a whole month since you went off on your adventure to Oz, how quickly did that time fly by???? I’m really pleased to hear how much you’ve enjoyed your time with Dot and I can’t wait to see your scrapbook pages appearing.

    Your card is fabulous and I actually thought that it was a representation of Andrew and you parting in Australia I love Visible Image stamps and I really like the background that you’ve created here, it really does have a party vibe going on. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

    Well I for one would love to see those scrapbook and journal pages Shirley!!!! It sounds like you’ve had a fabulous time. Your Visible Image card is packed full of fun and I’m sure that’s what you’ve had out there with Dot. You will have wonderful memories and before long, she might possibly be over here to see you again. Skype is a marvellous thing and brings the whole world together as if you are only in the next room doesn’t it? Safe journey home, xxxxxx

    It sounds like you’ve had a fabulous time with Dot. On scrapbook and journal pages I’m curious. The Visible Image stamps are so great.

    Oh Shirley – I am missing you guys already!!! The house is so quiet. I can’t believe how quickly that time went and didn’t we pack a lot into that time! lol
    It was an absolute honour to sit and watch you put this card together. I’ve learnt so much during our crafty sessions. THANK YOU! I agree with Sandra – this could very well be you and Andrew partying lol. Take care and enjoy the last leg of your holiday. No doubt it will be full on when you get home.
    p.s. I can’t wait to see your albums and scrapbook pages too.
