Hide and Seek at PaperArtsy



Hello all!

Another busy week for me, I'm afraid - busy in the real world, that is, but very quiet here at Words and Pictures - and I'm still missing being able to come and catch up with you all.

I'm even being very brief here at the moment - this is just a sneak peek to let you know I've been hiding things over at PaperArtsy.

The theme for this fortnight is Hidden Objects, and if you want to see what's hiding behind this innocuous exterior, I'm afraid you'll have to hop over to the PaperArtsy blog to find out.

I hope you're all having a lovely week, and I'm looking forward to getting back to my craft table and to Craftyblogland soon.

Everything we see hides another thing. We always want to see what is hidden by what we see.

Such a clever idea Alison and beautiful colours and images to have hidden. Love the textured look on the outside.

Nice that you are busy. I bet your life is very interesting and meaningful.

You are often in my thoughts. No need to catch-up at all.

How fun! I love how the simple rustic cover doesn't even begin to hint at the gorgeous color inside! Another beautiful creation, Alison!

I'm beginning to think that my summer is destined to be busy as well! Even when I have 'down time', there are so many things that need to be done... Hope we both find a little breathing room!

Left a comment over at PaperArtsy but wanted to leave one here too. I have a gift card for birthday present. The double envelope idea may be just the vehicle for a birthday card. Love this idea. -- ME
