Her parents went to USA , n we two teamed up and had ordered loads of stuff like brads , trimmer and paper pads . The papers had two or four each of designs .. so we basically shared it .. whoooo ! 
They are the most beautiful paper ever seen ! Best of Brenda Walton ! It was like a dream touching them !

I personally loved this project as for a change I  am creating something fer some different purpose , that too such a remarkable one . Its a honor for me . 
In this project I have used almost every technique . Like every thing . Its a 7 page book .
The book has pictures which are literally 50 years old . 
These pictures were printed then . I loved creating it .

The Complete Expression

Hello Friends ! 
I completed this project yesterday . It was an order from a friend . 
I m kinda feeling unwell and weak so I will keep it short and simple . 
Used almost everything , every technique from Stamping to Embossing ! 
This is called " Whiff of Joy and Expression "
Probably not my best but yes my Fav !
CIRCLE - A complete expression
These pieces of papers do bring a smile on my face ..
I love card making and yes dre are many mocking at me for my insane love for papers !
But still I am living it !
Coz i believe ! I enjoy !


I am also entering this card in a challenge at ujjwal's blog ! 
I have used simple stamping in this card and also embossing for the first time . 
I was always sacred about stamping and embossing .
This creation took a hell lot of time which also made me uncomfortable to complete it .
