My Farewell Projects by Mistra Hoolahan

Today I have to share with you my very last posts as a member
 of the Green Tara Design Team.

Our gorgeous goddaughter stopped with us a few days on her way
down south, and again on her way back home, and as always it
was so wonderful to see her.  Unfortunately like all 16yo girls,
trying to get a photo of her is near impossible, so when I get
 some they become my treasures!

This layout was a quick snap of Kel an her… Kel as always
 being a total goose, and Courtney trying to best to tolerate him.

I adore this Sage Satin Rosette, the colour is most divine and was 
perfect for these papers.  I felt the shape of it also would be a 
lovely compliment to the Cogs I've used on the layout.

The white flower clusters soften the cog clusters...

I have used the Flat Petals under the flowers and cogs as it
 emulates the teeth on the cogs...


I started this layout wayyyy back in February this year… and I just
couldn't quite get it happening.  This weekend gone I pulled it out
again and it all came together so easily.  Just goes to show that
sometimes it's best to just walk away and try again later!

The one part of the layout that was working for me were the
Green Tara flowers.  I had chosen my favourite Cherry Blossoms,
Sakura, flat Petals, Roses and a Moss Wild Rose.

The White Flower Lace Ribbon helped add just that little more white to
 balance the layout.  This lace is very versatile, it can be layered, used
 as is or cut up to add tiny accents.


For my very last share I decided to make a sweet little gift box topped
 with some beautiful flowers and my favourite ribbon.

I edged the lid of the box with Silver Diamante Trim, adding some
 elegance to the box and tying in the silver butterfly charm
and foil pattern on the paper.

The lovely lavender and lilac tones worked so well together…

It has truly been an honour to have been a part of this wonderful team
 for the last few years… I still remember my absolute excitement when 
I received the phone call asking me to join the team.  It really was a 
dream come true!  Thank you Alison and Di for everything, it has been 
a fabulous experience working with such quality products, and people!  
I promise I won't be a stranger… Green Tara products are well and 
truly in my creative 'Blood'!  xoxo
