Goodbye To Sweet Louise and CLP #62

Good morning everyone, this is a bit of a sad post. The lovely Louise of Louises scrapperie is putting away her crafty stash, and giving up crafting. Us, her team mates at Live and Love Crafts have decided to do a post each to let her know how much we will miss her, we chose today as it is her last day of posting at LLC. I am also teamies with Louise at CLP so I thought it was only right to combine the two.

I have been properly blogging just over 18 months, and in the time before that I spent ages drooling over peoples creations, and Louise was one of those people. I wanted to get the hang of distress inks, and Louise is one of the people whose work I looked at for ages to get tips. Her cards are always perfect, I love every detail of them, and can (and do) look at them for ages. Louise then joined LLC and CLP and I have gotten to know this lovely sweet lady. She is so sweet, kind and funny. Louise has taken the hard decision to leave the crafty world, and I can fully understand her situation, but I also know that she will be greatly missed.

Goodbye Louise, I am so privileged to have worked with you, and to have gotten to know you, but please be a stalker and visit us now and again!!

Here is the card I have made for Louise, following Chelsea's lovely sketch.

And, here is Chelsea's sketch, I've rotated it 180 degrees.

Gorgeous as ever, right??! Louise loves pink, so there was only one colour option to use.....

I have coloured Sakura Tilda in with distress markers, and added glamour dust and shabby white frantage
. The papers are from Maja Designs Vintage Summer paper pad, the edges have been distressed with Walnut Stain ink and a Tim Holtz tool.

There are links to the products at the end of my post, just click on the pictures at the end of the post.

I hope that you can join in with this sketch at CLP.

Louise, the crafty world is going to miss you, as am I, big hugs,

Becky xx
