Jade

The 4x4 Friday theme is my favourite colour. I absolutely love greeny blues - turquoises, teals, jades etc. These are colours that I wear as they are in my eyes. The colours here are a brighter version.

I was clearing out a cupboard the other day and found a spin and splash that belonged to my children when they were little. I've had great fun, as you can see, and had better be careful or they might claim it back!

Love the background on this one, and the scan suggests the surface is very tactile, which I'd also really like.
Have enjoyed a number of the items this month inc Gathering... and Rise...
