Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

A is for Apple

Good morning fellow bloggers and a very special welcome to anyone who has found there way here from the Crafty Boots Challenges site.

There is a new challenge starting at Crafty Boots Challenges today, chosen by Helen A, for the next two weeks the Challenge is "A is for Apple".  Now that the children are mostly back to school, Helen thought it would be fun to have a school theme, so show us anything to do with apples.

I have chosen two of my favourite Saturated Canary images to share with you.

This is Snow White and The Queen and I have to confess that I have unashamedly stolen this concept from the very talented Alyce from Kit & Clowder.

I coloured the images with Promarkers - except The Queen's crown, which I did with Wink of Stella pens.

The red glimmer paper is by Stampin' Up and the backing papers are from my new Tim Coffey stack from K & Co.  The gorgeous roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The rest of the Crafty Boots Challenges Design Team have been very busy making some inspirational pieces, so please pop by and take a look.

I am looking forward to seeing your apple related projects.  Good luck.
