Wallpapers, cards, scrapbook stuff, fashion and fabrics seem to blend together when it comes to trends. When we see the word trend we often think of fashion but over recent years I have seen that whatever colour/style/pattern is "in" for clothes is also "in" for everything else. So I keep an eye on trend sites just for my own amusement and then when CHA is looming I smile at the interpretation of those predictions.
So when these trees eventually hit scrapbooking I was smitten. I know the design has been around since the 50's (think Clarence Cliffe styleee) but I was elated they came to fruition because I think they represent and can interpret many things... family tree, life, renewal, growth, strength etc. And then when I created a tree for my blog header I was bombarded with requests of where I got it from and could anyone get it anywhere. You loves trees too? Yay! So you asked if you can have them and my answer is........yes you can. You can have a virtual pack of them.
With love from me to you - HERE
PS: I just want to say thank you to John Cheyne over at Jolly Nation who kind gave a link to my blog from his fab website. I notice they have a link to stuff that crafters who love a bargain (espesh card makers) will just lurve. Its here. I met John in July at a QVC event and we had great fun at a thai restaurant in London with a bunch of other entrepreneurs, business people, presenters and demonstrators. I love their range of decoupage of which I faffed with for Septembers Crafts Beautiful. Love, Love, Love.
Thank you John.
PPS: Thank the lord the UK saw the light and removed Daniel from X factor. Sheesh kebab, he was total cheese on toast. Now if we could only just stop Diana's over animated arms and hands, then we could see a real bun fight from now on!
PPPS: Belle is majorly excited that "Im a celeb...." starts tomorrow. I LOVE ANT AND DEC! She loves creepy crawly challenges and late night stop up's on a school night.
