A new design opportunity for me, World Card Making Day and 'Websters Pages' *September Mix and Match challenge*.

First of all I would like to mention that I am now a proud member of Cassie Box's large and awesome team over at Paper Issues.

From what I have experienced so far this is an great place to be. So much going on that I will let you in on when I get a better grip on it myself. I am still learning the ways and trying to catch up there.
I will let you in on a secret though that I will soon have a discount code that will make a visit to the Paper Issues Etsy shop very worthwhile!....

I confess I  to being a hoarder of the beautiful papers and embellishments from Webster's Pags for the longest time. - And although I have heaps I keep buying more simply because they are beautiful!
For some reason I've found them a bit difficult to scrap though. I think mainly because the amount of 
pattern they have, and also because they are too lovely to start cutting into...LOL!

Now that they have started producing a separate collection called Clean and Simple it all starts to come together for me as I have papers with a more subtle pattern to base my design upon. 
I LOVE those!!

Now they have this challenge to combine different collections on their blog and on inspireMe .
This is my page for the challenge. I think I used about eight different collections and possibly more as I had products that I don't know what collection they belong to.

I am sorry the pictures are a little crappy but it's just rain, rain, rain here at the moment!!

Almost everythiong here is by Websters Pages except the smaller paper roses an the chipboard corners from Imaginarium Designs.

I think the photos speak for themselves.
I will leave you to check them out as I go continue with the lo's I am making. 
I am quite excited about another toot I'll have in a day or two.....
I have been invited to a new DT and  I am creating up a storm for them at the moment!

I had an idea that I could add texture by scoring squares into my background paper. 
I actually love how it turned out. What do you think? I am definitely going to do this again. 
Often I like to sew this kind of pattern to my papers but this is so so much faster!!

I enjoy this beautiful view every day and I never tire of it. I have taken pictures of it in all seasons , and I am planning for a different lo with those in the future.
