Oh So Pretty

Come on crafters, tell me the truth - do you have some stash that rarely gets used because you keep on buying new stuff?  We're probably all guilty of that. I am making a bit of an excuse that since moving to Canada, my craft supplies are in a couple of big boxes under the stairs.  It's not easy getting to the stuff at the back, so I just use what is easier to reach! 
Saying that though, I have the complete Mint Julep collection from Basic Grey that I won a few years ago.  It's actually in easy reach, I just haven't used it for ages *shame face*.
Something else I won, more recently, is the gorgeous 'Braids In My Hair' image by Conie Fong.  I coloured her up in gorgeous red and pink tones, then did my usual sitting and wondering what to do with her.  So out came the Mint Julep. It's a really gorgeous collection and I was extremely lucky to win everything.  I hate it when I have part of a collection and not much to go with it. 

Product list:
  • Cream card blank
  • Basic Grey Mint Julep papers and embellishments
  • Tonic Tim Holtz paper distresser
  • Ranger Stickles, Christmas Red
  • ProMarkers - Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Satin, Burnt Sienna, Oatmeal, Shale, Cardinal, Hot Pink, Lipstick, Antique Pink, Pale Pink, Almond, Pumpkin, Warm Grey 1 & 2
