Craft Room Challenge Au Revoir

Thank you for all your cool and beautiful Christmas decoration entries  at Craft Room Challenge - some lovely Christmas inspiration for us all.
 I'm as always thrilled for it to be my turn to host again, though it is with Sadness that not only is this our last challenge of the year- it is also our Final Craft Room Challenge EVER :-( 

It's been a difficult and busy year for some of the DT and other members are moving to new pastures. We have loved being part of your creative journey and want to say thank you to each and everyone of you who have joined in our challenges. A special thank you to our regulars, who have become friends.
I also want to say a big thank you to Zoe, who has worked so hard on all our behalf, behind the scenes, including collecting and getting all those gorgeous prizes out to our winners. 

For this last challenge - I hope to see you all enjoy creating as much as we have. 

I've created an Inspiration Board: 

And here's the card I made inspired by above :

I do hope you find the time to join us in our last challenge.

Happy Christmas to you all

Deck the Halls

It's that time again, and as we are rapidly approaching Christmas, the lovely Hazel over at Craft Room Challenge, has chosen the theme of Christmas Decorations- now we don't want to see cards, just lots of decoration fun!

I finally ( It's been sitting barely touched, since I started it 2 Christmases ago!) finished my Christmas inspired Configurations boxes- these are such fun!

Spooky Coaster

Here's todays spooky Creation, just love that raven!
Here's an altered coaster, that I made real quick :-) This was Easy to make, I just painted acrylic paints on to the base, then used Gel Medium to add the book pages and chipboard. Then I added the raven and the bones.
It was a real treat for me to finally get some seriously altering halloween fun on!!!! So going to enter this spooky coaster over at Simon says Stamp Monday Challenge - Treats- any Kind!!
