My little dudes

So i scraped for me this week, no dt work, just me. I created a LO for a green buttons challenge over at UKS. The challenge was to scraplift a LO. I chose Ali's my gorgeus girls LO. I loved its simplicity and beauty.

But mine didnt look simple in the end as i did my usual chuck everything at it, lol. I was inspired by Alex's T shirt.

Another stamp project

I had a little play a few days ago with the stamps sent from Simply Create. As it was a very spring like day, i got all seasonal and made a little bird house treat box.

The papers are my new Tilda papers that i bought last week to go alongside my increasing tilda book collection and hopefully fabric when i pop down to simply create soon.

I stumbled across this on a blog somewhere and thought it might be fun to do for a while. So here goes

listening - to Mumford and Sons.

eating - a weight watchers pro points diet and having mixed feelings!

drinking - lots of water, my favourite drink.

wearing - my PJ's, dont seem to have time to get dressed properly at the mo with a new babe in arms.

feeling - overwhelmed by life sometimes.

weather - very spring like today.

wanting - Cheese on toast followed by a big bar of chocolate, both of which i am allergic to

needing - lots of sleep.

thinking - I need to tidy my craft pit as i am overflowing into the living room!

enjoying - Having my little babe and indulging my pink side

wondering - what weight watcher delights await me tomorrow!!!!

And i willleave you with this. So cute but it strangly doesnt look like her really

Crackle effect project:Hanging Mobile.

So this week i created a mobile for Rebecca's nursery using a maya road fancy coaster album. You can find all the details HERE.

I just love how it turned out. It was a two man job stringing it all together. Good job my mum is crafty as well, lol.

Its not easy photographing a mobile so here are some close up's of the birds. They are soooo cute.

And Rebecca loves it already.

A quick card

So my mum asked me to make a card for one of my sisters carers today so i decided to have a play with the new Hero Arts stamps that Simply Create sent. I really enjoyed playing especially as i am not a card maker or stamper really anymore. And i am still on my stash busting campaign so scraps all the way.
