Card Candy with Alicia Redshaw

Hello Every......... Sorry it has been so long between posts but I just have to tell you about the class I did with Alicia Redshaw over at Scrapbook Fantasies. We have just had the Autumn Retreat in store and it was wonderful. But that's not what this post is about............ This post is about the class that Alicia taught on Saturday, she call it 'Embellie Bits' and we made them with our 'Crumbs' of scrapbooking past. With all those old punches that we all have hid away in draws and all the left overs from past pages we put together a group of embellishments to add to pages and cards. So without much more I have a group shot of some of mine, (some of mine made it onto pages that you will see over the next few posts)...........



Here are some close ups of them.........

     

Thanks for stopping by.............
