Today.. I want to share with you all my entry for the Graphic 45 September challenge.
This is my piece:
I have a video here to tell you all about what I did to make this book box Halloween display. The Graphic 45 papers I used were scraps from last years projects-the paper lines were an eerie tale and steampunk spells.
If you can-I would love you to pop over to the Graphic 45 Facebook page and give my entry a 'like' HERE voting closes Sept 30th

This past weekend I got to go to a fun crafty class which took place in CreateWithKates new crafty corner and shop-visit the website at createwithkate.com where you can see what goodies Kate has in her store. (Video at the end of this post shows everything I made and bought!).
The class that I took was hosted by the talented and lovely Sylwia from Tandiart-look her up on Facebook, Instagram, blogger and also YouTube for loads of inspiration-her style is fun, bright and cheerful.... I couldn't wait to take this class as I was already familiar with Tandiart fairies and how cute they are-I already have one of Sylwias pieces up in my craftroom and she sells all kinds of goodness in her Etsy shop HERE.
I set off Saturday morning from Galway and was up in Kates crafty studio in just over an hour-it is in Mayo so not too far from me which was awesome. The studio is just so cute and I couldn't wait to take a look inside....
The inside did not disappoint!! Check out all of the crafty goodness-everything is so pretty and organised so it was so much fun looking around at it all. Kate also has loads of handmade pieces around the shop which show how different products have been used which is perfect for inspiration.
Our class kit came beautifully packaged with a little fairy photo on each bag!
Here are the contents of our kit bag, the wooden fairy house, papers, chipboard embellies, ribbon, flowers, pearls, buttons and an amazing TandArt print-we each got a different print which was such a nice touch.
First up we made our fairy houses and heres mine at a few stages papering... washi taping.... painting... stamping.... adding cute chipboard embellies from class sponsor scrapiniec HERE And then we each had to add out little fairies!
And here is my completed house and also part 2 of our class which was making the card you can see in the pic!
And here is the picture we took outside of everyones houses-we all wanted our own little fairy village after seeing them all together looking so cute!
I had ordered this fabulous leather cuff style bracelet from Sylwias Tandiart facebook page HERE before the class so she brought it there for me and its just so pretty-as a lover of photos it's just perfect for me.
And now....here is the video all about the day and I also share my purchases from the shop,
