Pretty Pink Papertake xxx


Here's Ballerina Anya. Isn't she sweet :))
She even has her own tiara, complete with a diamond!!

I used her for my Papertake Weekly challenge which this week is based on one of me sketches.

And here's me card.

I coloured her with the old faithful PMs and there's lashings of Glamour Dust on this. I'm still covered with it. God knoss what they must think when I go into our local shop!!! Even worse, Richard has been known to twinkle a bit when he's been in my craft room.

Ballerina Anya is from the very wonderful Dies To Die For - Tracy has a whole heap of different Anyas so check out the website cos they are so verrry sweet.

I 3D'd her tutu cos I wanted it to look a bit 'frothy' - hope you know what I mean.

The papers are PP Little Fleurs. I was talking to Liz last week and I said to her that this was the very first PP product I ever bought and it is still one of my all time faves. I just love that collection. The ribbon was in my US parcel from my wonderful friend xx

I used my other MS embossed scalloped border punch which I got from Dies To Die For and I covered it (and me) in Glamour Dust which you can see a bit better here.

I found the blingie squares in my craft room but I've had them that flippin long that a) they'd lost their sticky and b) I cannot remember where I got them from - doh!!!. The scalloped base card is by Papermania and I think I got them from the Paper Mill Shop.

You can see the dimension here.

And you can also see the foam pads which are stuck very unglamourously up Anyas skirt. The things we do for fashion lol xx


Pop over and check out the challenge girlies and also we have a Guest DT call out this week as well, so if you fancy 4 weeks with us mad lot, then now's your chance.

I thought I'd share this with you .....


Bless her.

Kyla made this at nursery. There was a chocolate covered strawberry for each of us and they came in their very own container. She obviously shares my thing for buttons and bling!! That's my girl xxxx

Now I know you will probably think I am the meanest Grandma in the world, but there is no way on Gods green earth that I could ever bring myself to eat it. Who knows what might be lurking, and please don't think about it for too long peeps cos the thought is retch-worthy!!!

I'm afraid we had to play the 'thank-you-so-much- darling-I-am-going-to-save-this-until-you-are-in-bed-and-have-it-for-my-supper' card again.

I say 'we' but Richard had no such qualms. He downed his in one!!!
Probably the best way but it still aint ever going to happen sadly.

Rotten old Grandma lol xx

Have a fab evening peeps and hugs to all xxxx

gorgeous card babe - I love it how your cards always look so perfect .... how do you do that??? Laughing about the strawberry - I am the same, I managed to survive Ryan's whole school life without trying anything he made - so I must be a meanie too. Just thinking of all that snot that has probably been sneezed into it - urgh. Plus I always thought we probably ended up with someone elses - surely they get mixed up!
Hahahaha
Have a fab day

Hmm, I have a strict policy never to eat anything made by a child that was not personally supervised by me!! I shudder at the thought of what those grubby little fingers have been probing seconds before delving into your tasty home made treat - urgh!

Your card on the other hand is gorgeous Dawn - LOVE the scalloped triangley bit - gorgeous.

Hugs,
Caryn xxx
