Focus on Life - Week 28


This week's prompt Pretty Patterns had me stumped for a while...

And then my issue of Papercrafter came in the post, with its pull-out section of designer A4 size papers...


These are two favourites close up


And two more...


I especially love the boats...


... reminds me of Cornwall - and of course, I just love the wee moggy perched on the stern :)

All the other pretty patterns are gathered over at Sally Studio Sublime - do pop over for a look...

Till next week xxx

PS Please indulge me in a Proud Mama moment...

Yesterday, our daughter won this award at school for art and design - she scored 97% in her end of year assessment!!

I love those papers that came just in time. The colors and patterns are wonderful.

Congratulations to your very intelligent daughter and also to her very proud mom.

So great that you get actual samples in with that magazine. Am sure you and that oh SO talented daughter will find good use for them.

Congrats to your daughter.. I got the home ec award (it was a small trophy) at the end of grade 9; when I came down for breakfast the following morning my sister who was just finishing grade 12 had neatly letter a piece of cardboard that said 'annually awarded for burnt water and lopsided potholders' and taped it over the brass.....

I like the little house the best of those sheets of paper!

Alicia said...

Congratulations to your daughter, that's an amazing accomplishment!

Your paper patterns are simply delicious - I wouldn't want to cut them :)
