Favourite Design Papers

Oh dear, a big oops from me today!! I realise it's Thursday now, didn't a few minutes ago! Been wrong with what day it is all week lol! I thought it was Friday today and can't believe a fortnight has gone by since our last challenge. Think I need to Spring clean my head ! Okay, glad I had my post just about finished so better get on and tell you what our challenge for the next fortnight is.

 this fortnight is about
 favourite papers and tell us why.

Our sponsor this fortnight is

I have used their dress template, copied to word, resized it and printed it out, base on cardstock and top layer using my favourite design papers Papermania, Parisienne Blues. My favourite colours and so so pretty. Added ribbon, lace and pearls to finish.

Copied the template into word, resized and printed it out. Can make it any size you want, use it as a card or as I have a topper for cards, bags, boxes etc. 

Lift the front of the dress up and sentiment inside

A gift bag ready to add something special to the inside! 
Gosh my brains in reverse gear today lol, why are they my favourite papers! Missed that bit out didnt I! Love the old fashioned look these papers have, the pretty roses, love Roses and have loved dark Blues ever since i can remember. Just had a thought!! Why are people drawn to a certain colour? I know some colours don't suit me and I know I love the cosy look but then some folks think Blue is cold. Love blue skies and blue seas so must be the reason I love it. There if I dug deep enough into my dizzy head I knew I would find the answer lol!!!! - Vintage - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Other than a card or tag - Favourite Colour Combo Blue/Cream

Off to enjoy an extra day lol!!!!
bye for now
