Kid's Play

Morning all,
Hope you had a good weekend. Mine was fab, all day class where we made some stunning projects as always. Lots of laughter, fine food and fabulous fun with a group of lovely ladies. Special guest this month was Sue McDonald, Thanks for joining us, hope you enjoyed it Sue.

I've had to share Sue's picture of one of the projects as mine got a little battered on the way home.

Sue then stayed Over and we had a massive clear out of the Den. Amazing what you find when you tidy up your crafting space! 

Then Sunday morning crafting, we made a Peppa Pig card. hope you like it x

Have a good week, happy crafting, make time for you as always, it's REALLY important. Don't forget 2/6/15 is the NEW catalogue release. Promise you some gorgeous goodies as ever. Dont forget to visit for some sneak peaks.

What a Weekend!

Hello everyone

After a fabulous and hectic holiday in Disney Paris,to celebrate Hayden's 4th birthday (hence the lack of blogs) it's back to reality with a bang. 

Had a very busy weekend creating for a craft Fayre at my church today as its Bank Holiday Monday and it's one of our annual fundraising events. Always popular.

Loved my Skype time with crazy penguin Pam Irwin (who flies over on 14/5 to join us for two weeks) and continual chat with Sue McDonald. Isn't technology great!

Anyway here are some of the makes, using the retiring painted petals for the gift sets, odds and ends of Designer series,paper for the mini notes and stack packs for the tic tac holders. 

Hope you like them and they are a sell out at today's event.

Hope whatever you're doing you're having fun and making time for you.

Saturday Scrappin'

Project Life this week!

We are into week 8 of our Saturday Scrappin' and this weeks challenge was set by Sue McDonald and involved creating a project life layout.

At a recent team training this layout was constructed by Bekka Prideaux and when we were creating I knew I had the perfect pictures to complete the page. a day at the beach collecting pebbles and shells with my gorgeous grandson. 

I loved the elements of this page and the Adventure Bound designer series paper was just perfect to compliment the pictures.

I hope you like it, and please come and join in our challenge. You can find all the layouts and our team interpretations over on Pinterest, or look back through my Saturday Scrappin' blogposts.

Have a crafty weekend everyone and make time for you! Enjoy, whatever you may be doing.

Scrappin' Saturday

Yesssssssss, it's the weekend!

Today I'm over at our monthly class at Bicknacre with the lovely Irene and tomorrow off to team training at Peterborough with the wonderful Sue from FrankieSue's crafty place and Michelle over at the Krafty Koala. I'm very much looking forward to the girl's day out, and catching up with all my fellow demos and friends. The swaps are always very exciting too! 

I'm still very much enjoying taking part in the Butterfly Belles Scrapping Challenge and we are now on week 6. The time is flying by and it's great getting pages created and seeing the album grow.

This weeks sketch was based around three 4x4 photos. 

Here is my interpretation of the sketch, the photos were from November last year at my grandson's preschool. I love the way the layout has turned out. 

The layout uses Stampin' Up! Exclusively;The circle and square Framelits, a variety of circle punches, adventure bound stack pack, spiral border punch and the great sport (retired) stamp set. 

Please don't forget we'd love you to join in the challenge and post your interpretations for us to share.

Happy crafting and I hope you're making time for you!
