Beautiful Borders @ Totally PaperCrafts

Hello again, I'm back with my 2nd post in 2 days. So far so good with keeping up lol, it used to take me a week to make one card!! I am working hard to stay ahead as I will be working soon and my time crafting will be short. 
If all  goes to plan I'm actually on my way to my Mum's for the night ready to get an early start at the NEC craft show in the morning (Mum lives 20 miles away, I live 120 miles away!) Hopefully I'm meeting Pam, Debs, Claire & Sharon and maybe some more lovely crafters. Let me know if you're going, I'd love to meet you!

Today it's time for a new challenge at

Totally Papercrafts

and this week my lovely friend Wendy is hosting, she has chose the theme

Beautiful Borders

I have so many borders but decided to use my first and still favourite lace Doo Hickey die.

The image is Fortune Teller Ellie, one of a fabulous new release from the 

and the lovely owner/artist Christine emailed to ask me if I would like to  GD for her and make something with them, of course I jumped at the opportunity and as I'm flying off on holiday next week and time is short I've combined the 2 tasks today. The papers are (again I hear you moan) from a Maja paper pad, I'm not sure which one. Flowers from everywhere!!

 So.......head over to the totally Papercrafts challenge blog for all the details on this weeks challenge, the prize on offer to win the winner and some beautiful border inspiration from my talented teammies, then head over to the Paper Nest Dolls to check out the cutest little characters available.

That's all from me today, thank you for stopping by
and for any comments you may leave

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges.....
