Morning guys hope you are all well,and had a great gut forkes,and all that went to the NEC hope you had fun lucky devils.
Did you see the X Factor last night oh wow Rebecca,and Matt were just amazing last night,just brilliant,time for that Wagner to disapear he MUST GO TONIGHT.
Right My daughter bought this large frame for a friend at work,and it had glass on the front of it but someone knocked into her and broke the glass so she left it here.
This piece of board is large and measures,16 by 12. 
I kept looking at it wondering what I could do with it so decided to make this steam punk collage,now it is big so was really not sure how it would turn out.
I have used a mixture of Graphic,45 and 7 gypsies,papers,and other bits and pieces from my stash.
So here is it,I do hope you like it.

Finally I have made this,Leaf,ATC for a challenge I found over at the cheerful stamper,thanks to a blogging buddie for posting,it so this is what I have created.
The stamp is from the Artistic stamper,which I have then stamped onto grunge paper then ran the leaves through my crimper to give them some shape,used,maghogony distress inks added some distress stickles.
The background is stamped with the same leaf,then,used perfect pearls,and some glimmer mist, finished with some charms,and a button,and ticket from Tim Holtz.
Also Dear June over at Dezinaworld has reached 300 followers,and to celebrate she is giving everyone who enters her challenge a prize,yep thats right everyone. So if you would like to find,out more then click HERE
