Just a few trinkets...

The last colour challenge for the month is at RAKScraps hosted by Connie, where the theme is mums and family. Now those of you who've been with me for a while may remember the cards I made for Mother's Day...sigh!

Anyway, I really liked the papers because the stone represents my mum's strength and the damask is because she was a damask weaver before she got married - so I've recreated them in this month's colour palette (along with some matching beads and baubles) and hence we have:

Trinkets for Mum


which contains:
  • 3 stone textured papers
  • 3 crumpled damask papers
  • 3 crumpled textured solids
  • 2 small bead necklaces (frames)
  • 2 dragonfly brooches
  • 3 coloured pearl bracelets (frames)
  • 3 coloured pearl earrings (brads)
I was working on the dragonfly brooches for another section of the Grow kit - but I couldn't figure out how to get the Grow theme to work for a Mum-related kit lol! Nevertheless, I think they go just as well with this, and I really like how the coloured pearls turned out - hope you like them too.

Ooops - and something that really tickled me today was a sign we passed on the way back from running various errands which said:

Save the earth - it's the only planet with chocolate!

What more motivation do we need????


  1. I love this set!!! The damask is to die for and I'm especially partial to gemtones so this pallet is made to order for me!!!! Yes, the planet deserves to be saved for the sake of CHOCOLATE!!!!!
