"Meeting my BFF" and "A Moment of Peace", by Mistra Hoolahan

Meeting my BFF

I'm such a lucky girl... I finally got to meet one of my BFF's {beautiful fabulous friends}!  I talk to Natasha every single day, thank goodness for modern technology... but living a world apart means we'd never actually met, now we have and it just makes me love her all the more.

One thing we stupidly didn't do was get millions of photos together, but we did get a few and this is one of my favourites. 

I used some lovely soft papers from Pion Design and found a wondrous assortment of matching Green Tara flowers for it.

I have used the beautiful Velvet Rose, sweet Sakura and my favourite, Heirloom, which also now comes in a 4cm size!!

Added some lovely scrolly Dusty Attic chipboard...

I used some of the new tulle to tie some bows to soften the clusters.  This tulle is so soft and fine, perfect for bow making!

One of the new 4cm Heirloom flowers, they are so cute!!

I love the Green Tara Lace range... I have tucked some in under the paper edge and used this fabuous one below as a feature strip.

A Moment of Peace

This has become a fave photo of myself... I look as happy as I felt.  Relaxed, refreshed, finding a moment of peace on some church steps while running around a very busy city!  The photo was taken on my iPhone and edited with picFX app, if you love camera apps, check that one out.  But what's even cooler... Harvey Norman's now print square format photos!  I'm not sure how long they've been doing that for but it was new to me and I was so excited to have a square pic to use!

So anyways... sorry I had to share and got off track, but now onto the really good stuff - Green Tara yummies!!

All my favourites all in a cluster {yeah I know, there's lots of favourites}!  Heirloom flowers, satin Swarovski Crystal flowers, cherry blossoms, roses, lace.. sigh, we really are spoiled for choice!

Oooh and a new favourite... look at that silver 'bling' trim!  Stunning, but would you believe it's actually just plastic, certainly had me looking twice.  It's brilliant, being plastic means its so easy to work with but it's not heavy on your page.

More pretty closeups... the new 4cm Heirloom flowers are so sweet.

The Swarovski Crystal centres add the perfect amount of sparkle...
