When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Home - Crafty Boots!

Hello everyone - I'm back today to share my DT project for the latest Crafty Boots challenge.

So the fab and lovely Emma T chose the theme and it is 'Home', why not join us and see what you can come up with, for all the details and all of the DT inspiration go to our challenge BLOG

Ok so my project is based on my home.  

As you can see it's a double page spread in my blue Smash book (Smash Books can be ordered from the Crafty Boots on-line store)

Each page reflects our bedrooms that were recently made over, mine last year and Keagan's this year. 

I used ribbon and card that matched the colour themes of the bedrooms. I also used my pennant epiphany tool to punch out the little flags to add to the pages. Card Candi - have to have it on my projects! I also dotted some liquid pearls around the pages to add a bit of something extra. 

On my page I did use a mask on the background, it's a 6 x 6 Zebra print (bought from Crafty Boots) which I inked through. All because I love print and have cushions on my bed to match!

For the journalling I used a mannequin that I had to write on for my page as it also matches the beautiful cream mannequin that my parents bought me after I graduated in 2010. 

I used just a simple journalling card to write up the details for Keagan's room.

So my interpretation is a little different perhaps but I bet a lot of you are like me and take photos of all sorts?! So why not get them off the computer and into a Smash book!

Hope you all like my 'Home' project and are inspired to have a go yourselves.

Take care Zo xx
