the journey so far...

I like looking back at previous posts or photo's to see how far I've come along this journey into card making and creating. The other day when Blogger informed me that I had hit my limit for photo uploading, I went back to older posts from over a year ago.. Deleting older posts I could do with out. I don't want to upgrade my online storage just yet. I got rid of some of the photo's I'd been storing online...just making a little more space to continue on with my journey here.

 For me my blog is like a scrap book.. I can go back and see the progression.. Look at older challenges...seeing what I liked back then, and dislike now.. I think I've finally found my groove. My own style.. I'm loving feeling comfortable in my own card making abilities and not constantly comparing myself to others..

I've decided to enter another challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room. It features some of my favourite items; doilies and lace.  I used a combo of crocheted doilies and paper.. and used some lace to add dimension to the centerpiece. 
*sigh* Don't you just adore that sentiment..I need to get more of Ali Edwards stamp sets. The way the script and handwriting go together amazes me.  I think this one is going to my MIL, by way of my guy.. Mother's Day is coming up soon. Some PTI goodies; papers and my fave Love Lives Here dies.. Those little hearts make my day. Melissa Frances papers..some tea stained trim... I like the overall effect. 
I'm off to post this over at the gallery and take a peek at some of the other talented ladies.
Talk soon,
