I'm Back and how!!

I'm crafting spirit is back...And the thanks for it goes to Sophia Landry of the Moonlight Inker...A big shout out from me to you girl...She sent me a big boxful of goodies...couple of SU! sets, my most sought after brads( we dont' get the tiny ones in India, really big and ugly ones only!!) , ribbons and what not...thank you so so much've brought my spirit back..

Well I've been playing around with Photoshop so much, downloading freebie kits from all over the place...they're easier and much less expensive than entering blog candies, I hate for all to pay so much shipping..and the Indian Post is none too great..Sophia's parcel was posted in Jan, I got it in May...Go figure!!!!
Some of the candies never made it over I've stopped entering for candies, downloading freebie stuff is good enough..kills my phone bill but that's ok..better than burdening someone else..
Ok enough rambling...I'd like to show you what I made..I just love it and I hope H loves it too when I gift it to him on his birthday.

I had brought a frame and saved the box that the frame came in...made a shadow frame box, somewhat loosely based on the idea by Maria Bell .

I used the Delight in Life set which Sophia sent me..and the papers are 7gypsies, classic collection.

A close up of the flowers and the sentiment inside..The flowers are paper-pieced..

This sentiment is from a set that I won in a candy by Heather,but don't know the name of the set...

Didcha like it? Do you think H will like it...

Yikes, where have I been?

Where have I been...its been almost 2 weeks and more since I logged in. Getting engaged certainly changed a lot of things..for one, I don't have much time on my hands to create anything..I'm either busy yaking on the phone and running up the phone bills, or I'm busy playing around with photoshop, my newest addiction. And of course going ga-ga over the tons of freebies on Ikeagodess's blog or Digifree blog..

And of course, I can't thank Misty Cato enough for great tutorials on her blog..I am learning loads from her too..Thanks girl..

I'm enjoying this form of scrapping as its mess and yes, my soon-to-be-DH can't threaten to dump it in the bin, as he does with my papercrafting stuff .. he's a cleanliness freak and I'm a slob..I thrive in my creative mess.. he can't understand why I like my clutter!!! Oh well, either I'll clean up my act or teach him how to be a slob mrgreenmrgreenmrgreenmrgreen

Here's just one of the layouts I made, but i'm absoutely sorry as I never remember to keep a track of who offered these freebies, if you know you did, please let me know and I'll thank you once again...

all of these were hunted from either Ikeagodess's blog or the Digifree blog.

I completely erased the background which I didn't like...and just put the frame, and the word art which were a part of a freebie.
