 Hello everyone,

Crikey, I nearly put the wrong project up just now, I was a bit excited this morning and lost my train of thought, not a difficult thing for me, just saying..

A new fortnight has come around and so quickly, May already and time for a new challenge over at 


 and Lynne is our lovely hostess this time and her theme is..SPRING or SUMMER.

I love Spring and Autumn, I'm not hot or cold, just right, so went with Spring..

And Daisies, how can anyone not like daisies..

I printed out this picture a few times, isn't it gorgeous, and the die cut daisies were leftovers, and cut them in half just to fill the sides a bit..

Found these coaster discs at K Mart, online, as store locator said they didn't have any  at my local shop, so, went there with my daughter few days later and they had heaps of them!!!

Die cut my daisies into circles slightly bigger for best results, and glued them all down
with a matt medium.

Trimmed the edges with scissors after gluing die cut daisies in place..

Which I have now learned,  cut in paper not card stock, so I don't do that any more..

I needed a strong glue for those die cut daisies and my beloved Nuvo is out of stock all over the world.
I had enough for these and still have some drops in the bottom of my last bottle..

The problem I then had was, the die cuts were so thick on the edges, sanding them was so difficult..
Trimming also was awful too before the sanding, but I struggled on..

If that wasn't enough, I then made a little box for them to go in..

The box loved the card stock die trimming needed here..

Coasters nestled inside..

And all  finished with shading around the edges and they do look pretty..
I sealed with them with the matt medium too, so they are 

We are sponsored this time with Amanda Jayne Designs
and 2 singles digis for our winner..

So do come and join us.

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
