Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop !!!!

Fab Fab Blog Hop taking place this weekend pop on over to and take a peek at all the amazing talent thats on show !!!

Now everyone knows that I'm rubbish at Blog Hops and go into a panic when I'm asked to do one but when I recieved the images from Fresh Brewed Designs well .... it had to be done !! ..... so here's my original make using the digi's from them .....

I decided to do a Fatpage (4"x4") purely because I just love how much fun you can cram onto one and I just went for full blown colour ...... well it's Autumn or Fall (depending on which side of the pond you're from) the richest season of the year colour wise !!

I also thought I'd sneak another make in using the Pumpkin image from Fresh Brewed and just add a few bits n bobs ......

So come on .... hop on over to the blog  and swing by to the shop as well @   ........ grab a Pumpkin and have some fun !!!
