 We at TFATU are hoping your dreams and wishes are coming true! 

It's close to the midway point of the August #8 competition ending on the 31st so DT Granmargaret and I are bringing some more magical inspiration to tantalize your creative mojo! 

Come and join our 'always anything fantasy goes' theme competition. Bragging rights are possible. Starting in 2023, the overall winner will be offered an invite to be a Guest Designer in the following month's competition. And then there are a minimum of Top 3. If there are 41+ entries, there will be a Top 5 which gives a couple of more crafters a chance at bragging rights.

Both inspiration projects are wonderfully creative!

Retired several years ago after 30 years as a Police Officer and I now wonder how I found time to go to work! Married to an amazing man and I am grateful every day for all the blessings I have.

Thanks again for having me!

WOW! Spectacular!!!

This is such a stunning underwater fantasy world! Wonderful artistry, Viv!!
