Special Host at the Craft Room

Happy New Year to my fellow bloggers!  I hope 2014 brings you all health and happiness.  Today sees my first blog post of 2014...my intention this year is to reconnect with my crafting....though home life is still very stressful and this intention may fall by the wayside.  Please bear with me if my blog lies dormant sometimes....

Anyway there is a treat in store today over at the Craft Room - we have a very active and friendly Facebook group and one lovely lady who joins in all of our challenges is our host for the first challenge of this New Year.  Chris lives in France and creates wonderful collages and as such she wishes to be inspired by her collage - please see the challenge post on the Craft Room and also to be introduced to Chris!

I have incorporated my DT contribution with a Circle Journal that needs to be completed by today .... it is entitled "Significant Places" - so I decided to create my pages on New Orleans where my husband and I visited when we won a competition a few years ago.  Therefore Chris' American theme helped inspire my New Orleans layout....I have also incorporated lots of stars as has Chris!

I won't bore you with the detail of my layout - I think it is all pretty self explanatory in any event...well let's hope so.



Thank you for visiting...hope you are inspired by Chris' card too.....Suzanne x

Hi Suzanne, I'm glad to see you back on the path of creation, I wish you a 2014 year calmer than last one. I am pleased and surprised to discover what my collage inspired you. A beautiful journal, I hope to discover more when you will complete it.

Very pretty Suzanne! I love the metal embossing and the rolled back corners. Very neat technique!

Brilliant pages Suzanne, I love how you're rolled down the corners to show the metal underneath.
