Secret Garden

S is for................... Secret which is my chosen word this time for the letter "S" in the Alpha Dictionary Challenge at The Craft Barn, a quick and simple page.  I was running out of time as challenge ends on Sunday and as we are nearly at the end of the challenge I simply couldn't miss one now as I have kept up all the way through, some weeks I have finished my page just under the wire!!

 A little bit Magical Stamp set Sheena Douglass and distress inks, vintage photo, walnut stain, forest moss, pine needles were used to make this Secret place, I adore this set  and this is the first time I have inked them up.

Off to have a look at the other entries while I have time, thank you to everyone who stops by my blog and spends time leaving me lovely comments I really appreciate it and enjoying reading them.

Dare I ask how your Christmas preparations are going................hectic here  this time last week we were away for the weekend, then visitors for a few days,  they have gone home now so today is the first chance I have had to play, Christmas shopping to finish and baking to do..............not sure when I will be back.........

'till next time
bye for now

  2. What a wonderful secret garden, fabulous pages.

  3. I agree with you Maggie, it is a lovely stamp. Great idea to frame your page with a leaf border, it does look like a secret garden with a secret door

  4. Beautiful pages, love the images and colours

  5. It's a great stamp. Love how you've coloured it and carried on the theme with the leafy border. Only 2 more to go!

  6. Adore your secret garden so magical. BJ

  7. What a beautiful secret garden! Lovely stamping!

  8. Fabulous Secret Garden page! The main image is gorgeous and looks brilliant with the leafy border and wall. Thank you so much for following me, I am following you now too. xx

  9. Love your secret garden! Beautiful stamping on the journal pages and I love that tree door! I have not started one bit of Christmas shopping and in fact am just starting to move things around to decorate a little inside! The outside was done last weekend! Enjoy the weekend!

  10. Hi Maggie, great page and choice of words, if you think you were under the wire there were plenty after you, I made it with 8 minutes to go this time!

    I just wanted to thank you for your kind comment on my LOTV card yesterday, that's really sweet of you.
    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
    Hugs Teresa

  12. I love your choice of word of secret garden. Depicted beautifully on your page. Just 2 letters left. It hardly seems possible that we have been doing this challenge for nearly a whole year now. I can't wait to finish and see what the new challenge for 2014 will be. hugs Mrs A.

  13. Magical pages... I'll have to show them to my niece, who's just been introduced to The Secret Garden and loves it!
