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.

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue
It is time for another challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges. In celebration of the imminent wedding of our beloved leader, Stephanie-Emma has chosen the theme of 'Something old, something new, something borrowed or something blue'.
I have done my best to incorporate all four elements of the challenge into my project, but you do not have to do that, you can choose any of the four.
My Sizzix heart die and the pink glitter card are my something old and the roses, the 'Love' ticket, lace and buttons are all from my new Stampin' Up Artisian Embellishment Kit.
I have had my Penny Back stamp of of the bride for a couple of years but this is the first time I have used it, so I am not sure which camp it goes in. I added some glitter to the dress and veil.
Something borrowed, I borrowed the Sizzix Bigz tag die from Stephanie-Emma. I distressed the edges of the tag with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
And finally, my something blue comes in the shape of a button and the ribbon in the tag.
The rest of the Design Team have created some really amazing projects, please make time to take a look for yourself.
Have a fabulous wedding Ms and Mr Boots, we wish you long and happy life together.
