TRISHA The shining star

Side view
Hi there!
Thanks for your prayers and wishes.Update on Trisha is that she is getting  admitted this evening and her surgery is tomorrow morning at 8:00am.I realised this morning that it is the last day of the month and I haven't submitted my scrapbook page of the month at the ICR.I found some time to make this one and I am pretty pleased with the outcome.
The package I drew inspiration from
The challenge at ICR says NO PP OR DP for Keeping in mind Isha's challenge at Do more with less and this package I made this.

I have used Creative scrappers sketch #219 and have played along with Play date cafe colors.Keeping the sketch in mind I decided to play along with good friend Hussena's current challenge at Do more with less.
Detail shots.
The TITLE and the gorgeous alphas

The bloom made with circle punch

Some more circle punch blooms and the stitching and the raffia twine

The distressed SUN.Ain't my little star brighter than the SUN?

let me know what you think of my first attempt at CD mini.Of course I drew a lot of inspiration from Indira Tanwar and Jovita to make this one.
I also recycled an old paper napkin paper case to make a bag to hold the CD mini,a deodorant , a soap and a card.

Please pray for Trisha that she recovers fast.

Inspiration from Karuna and a challenge

Hi peeps! I have more than hundred followers now and I wanted to celebrate this with you all....and guess what Karuna was so kind to accept this offer to do a GD post for me despite her busy schedule.Please do visit here to see some of her fabulous work. You all are aware of her gorgeous explosion what better inspiration from the queen of explosion boxes than that.I am having a challenge to celebrate my growing followers list and all you need to do is to make either an explosion box or any other box and link it here. There is a generous prize of 500INR from the LULUPU store for the winner. So what are you waiting for? Over to Karuna.

Its Karuna here from and am here to share my favourite Exploding Box card with ya all! This one was made to order by a lady for her Darling husbands birthday with some of his fav items to be included. This isn't my Cake card.... thanks to the client for letting me try out something unique and different! this indeed was one of my fav bozex and i have spent way too many hours in the details too!

Most of you know me well even though i am usually MIA. That's also because am almost always busy with my online craft store and we have been up and running for almost 5 months now. 
You would notice from my work that I love cute and cheerful colours but I am not much into Vintage look though I would love to give that a shot someday. I love paper quilling and it’s also a technique I have taught during several workshops. I enjoy working with all kind of stamps and ink as it opens up a whole new world of possibilities in terms of techniques we can work out. One of my favourite tool is my manual Die cutting machine which assists me in making some great shaped cards and embellishments. I dabble in various types of techniques and love to try out new variety of card folds, my favourite being the magic explosion card (i have made so many by now!). I also enjoy making Scrapbooks as it gives me chance to work with many ideas in just one project plus it can be personalized as a gift.

Thanks to Snehal for inviting me for Guest post. I think this is my first time as a guest DT for any blog so thanks for chance Snehal! 

Warning: This is gonna be a picture heavy post!
