My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

LRW and "Life's A Garden""

This week, the challenge at Little Red Wagon was to use heat embossing on one's creation.

I am no heat embossing expert. In fact, I can count on one hand how many times I have used my Martha Stewart heat gun since I bought it a year ago! However, Now that I am getting the hang of it, I might use it more. Maybe as I get started on my Christmas cards.....

On my double layout, "Life's a Garden," I used my heat gun to emboss the letters in the word "BUZZZ." I thought this stamp from We R Memory Keepers went perfectly with my layout about my family's recent trip to an apiary fun farm.

I like how it adds a little shine to the words, adding another texture to the layout.

Most of the other product is from Imaginisce's "Berrylicious" line and is part of my August design team kit from The Scrapping Bug. You'll see a bit more of this as the month progresses.....

Thanks for stopping by!!
