Knockan Crag and "The Bell"

This pic is of Knockan Crag in the Scottish Highlands. I haven't altered it in any way, it was as black as black above us but the sun was shining on the mountain in the distance. I hope the camera has captured it well!

As much as I love going on holiday I have really, really missed creating and I was desperate to get back to it today.

The Bubbly Funk Design team challenge this month is to use some Angel blooms in a variety of ways but to use at least a couple in a Christmassy theme so for my first effort I have created this rather wacky bell shaped decoration. I was rather pleased with actually, mind you, it was the 3rd bell shape I had cut. The first 2 were absolute pants!!

I also managed to just about finish my cj entry for posting on Monday, I musn't forget to take pics tomorrow and I've also started my Bubbly Funk October ATC's. Black and White theme so something a bit different.

I've still to study more of Shimelles work book, do some recipe cards and lots of other stuff before I can even think of Christmas. Note to self: Don't sign up for anything else!!!

Talking of Christmas, I so love the brown and golds that are coming out this year but I just musn't buy any more decorations. I have a major passion for Christmas and I have decorations in red, blue, silver, burgundy, gold and I just pick a colour scheme each year. Family even ask me what colour I'm doing so they wrap presents to the right theme!! I just love it when everything coordinates but I do wish they hadn't brought out these gorgeous browns and golds, would go so well in my living room too LOL! Oh well, we'll see!

Woah - what a stunning photo!! It's breathtaking! i "think" the UKS photo comp this month is on Landscapes - get submitting girly!!! You've got a winner there if it is!

I love all the new brown decs too - would really suit our lounge which we decorated in the spring. Typical really after five years of collecting everything (and spending a small fortune!) on a purple and silver theme isn't it?!!!

Love that bell Di, you've got a reall classy style. As for the christmas decs, well, we're not huge on christmas, though somehow I can resist buying some extra decs. We are the traditional red and gold theme, and a big green tree. The browns and golds are lovely, go on, give it a go. Lol. Beth XX
