Hi everyone! This week at the Craft Barn Blog we've been showcasing the lovely Tando Creative chipboard line with some superb creations and ideas from my DT friends.

Hi Chris! Phew! I'm finally catching up to you. This is a very pretty project, done in pretty, soft pastels. How did you ever think to put all these things together? Anyway, it's another masterpiece. You have patience and ambition!

Hi Chris. Your trio of crowns are darling. I love the colors you used. I'm hearing more and more about these Fresco paints. I may have to give them a try...wish we had them in the states. They sound pretty amazing. I am still in total love with your ART tag featured on your blog right under these darling crowns! Your work is really good. <3 Candy
