Hi there and happy Sunday to you where ever you are in the world.
Have i said lately that i happen to have a scrapping crush on Shimelle , well i have and at the moment am doing a wonderful online class called Remix with her. I'm learning to mix new papers with old papers and use up some of my stash, there's tips for using all of the embellishments we seem to collect, all that chipboard that i have hiding in trays and if you can't find anything to match then make your own. Nothing new i guess but sometimes its good to get a little reminder.

One of the prompts this week looked at using a 12x12 piece of patterned paper that had a motif on it. i had been hoarding this particular paper because a) i liked it, it is sparkly and b) i had no idea how to use it, so this is what i came up with
It has a lot of "white" space but i like white so that's OK and for once there isn't any journalling as the title says it all for me and i didn't think it was necessary.
here's a little close up
it came together really quick which was a bonus.

Joe and i are on a quest to make the perfect pate, although in my opinion nothing will compare to the Duck liver pate at The Little French Winery. Here is our attempt from yesterday
mmm yum getting close but not quite, although our pate is made from chicken livers i will have to try and find somewhere that sells ducks liver and breast as at TAFE this week Joe made duck rilletts which i really must show you as it looks mouthwateringly scrumptious and i really want to make it for Christmas (or get him to make it-that would be better).

Off to have a little pate snack
see you later.
