Libby awarded this special blog to me. Thank you Libby for this and for all that you do for me. I appreciate you very much. I first met Libby at a crop run by another lady. We soon became friends with so much in common. However, she is neat with her craft stash and I am untidy. I wish I could be more like Libby and be more organised with my craft things then I might be able to find them when I need them.

I have been making these 2 slices since the 1970s. The chocolate one is a Chocolate Fudge and the other one is a Coconut Slice. We had these 2 on the Friday night at camp. I used my cake stand I got for my birthday from Mel and the girls a few years ago.

This name tag was sitting on my desk at camp. The frill was made from a strip of paper that I pleated roughly to give a gathered appearance.

I then rubbed Gel Medium all over the front and back of each circle.
The circles were allowed to dry.
I then scrunched up the 3 circles and laid them down on top of each other.
The 3 circles were then bradded.
I then sprayed Adirondack Color Wash over the top. This allowed the original colour to be seen in some areas. The colour intensity changed on certain parts of the Gel Medium.

|These paper flowers have been made using Treehouse Memories double sided patterned paper.|
|By using the double sided patterned paper you can layer the flower petals and they tone in.|

|This paper flower was made from double sided patterned paper called Treehouse Memories.|
|This paper is what gave me the inspiration to make these flowers. I used Basic Grey, Offbeat, Laid Back.|
I cut around the teardrop shape and these formed the petals.
I pinched them at the base to give a puffy appearance and then glued them in place.
The top petals were inspired by the edge teardrops on the paper.
The middle of the flower can have anything from a button to a brad in the centre.
