WELCOME TO MY CASTLE

HAIL ALL VISITOR FROM CREATIVE LANDS NEAR AND FAR!  WELCOME TO MY CREATIVE CASTLE BLOG!  MY NAME IS PRINCESS KATHRYNE I TRUST YOU HAVE ENJOYED YOUR TOUR THUS FAR AND HAVE FOUND MANY MANY THINGS TO INSPIRE ALL YOUR CREATIVE NEURONS

HAVE YOU REMEMBERED TO LOOK FOR CLUES ALONG YOUR JOURNEY?  YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS A SHOT AT THE BIG SHOT!! OR OTHER PRIZES!

NOW ON WITH MY ROYAL PRINCESS GALLERY!


The Stamp set is  Go Graduate which is appearing in the upcoming Summer Mini!  This set has special meaning to me as my very own Princess Presley is graduating this year and is off to the Royal University next year to continue her Princess training!
 Go Graduate is a fun set to work with, look at those awesome feet!  So I decided to make a cute, fun page.  Bright colours for my very bright girl!  Certainly celery, Brilliant blue, yo yo yellow, pixie pink,( get them while you can!!!),  there is the new Smooch spray on the whisper white back ground too!  LOVE IT!!   Come back after May 4th for full tutorials on all projects or you may order kits on line by sending me an e-mail.  

This next Project is an awesome gift! What a cute Grad Cap!  Just adjust the colours to suit your school.  I embossed the wonderful flying Grad Cap from the Go, Grad set onto the top of the  Cap!  Inside you will find a set of thank you cards to give the Graduate so they can send thank you's  out for their gifts!  And there is still room for another little gift inside as well. I loved this one!
 A gift is not complete if you do not give a card with it!  So I took the sentiment  " You go" from the Go, Graduate set and made this cute card.  I also mixed it up with a little Very Vintage jumbo wheel being carried over from the Occasions Mini  Hooraaaayy!!!


Gift cards are a fun gift for Grads so here is a really awesome holder you could make! Check back the week of May 4th for details - or check out one of my classes and come have some fun making some for all occasions with friends!

And for a change of pace  I thought I would try a little Red!  It always looks so rich and elegant!

I used the Embosslits Beautiful Wings for the Big Shot!  A must have to whoever is the lucky winner!
And of course there is the Dazzling Diamonds on the butterflies!

Because it just would not do if there was not glitter in the castle!
Oh and speaking of GLITTER

It's time to announce my Blog Candy offering!
Here is how it will work 
Leave me a comment and your name will go in a draw for the blog candy.
Follow my blog and you will be entered into the draw.
Make a purchase during the Blog Tour either at my on-line store or call it in and you will get two extra chances for the draw.

What is the blog candy?

GLITTER!!!!

Dazzling Diamonds
Two way glue pen

Good luck to Everyone!

Thank you for visiting my castle -- I do hope you will visit often!  Do not forget to come back for tutorials and to check out what is happening later!  Clubs, drop in, card nights, tech night, Kids Club! Check it out!



Glittery Hugs
Kathryne

Love the grad cards, but especially love the bold red on the butterfly card! Nice to get away from pastels for butterflies every once and a while, so this was a nice inspiration.

Thank you so much for choosing a grad set! I make invitations every year for my pre-school's annual graduation and it's lovely to have a few more ideas to choose from! Also, believe it or not, I don't have the set your offering for candy yet, so I'd be thrilled to win it!

Thank you so much!

Warmly,
