Pretty Pink & Luscious Lime :)

Picture 016 copy

This has got to be one of my fave ever colour combis (you probably noticed lol xxx)

And this is probably one of my fave Anya images, so we were off to a good start for this week’s challenge over at Anyone For Anya. All we needed was a layout and as it’s the last challenge of the month, we always have a sketch, so that was taken care of as well.

And this is our sketch this week.

I like this sketch because you don't need too much design paper, and it’s also quite flexible and work work any way up.

I rotated it counter clockwise ….

…. like this.

I coloured the image with PMs and added a touch of Glamour Dust cos I wanted her petticoat to sort of match the tulle. This Anya is from the Miss Anya Dressy set which you can get from the ever so fab Tracy at Dies To Die For – you can see them here - and she also does a great range of PMs as well.

The papers, which are also from Tracy, are from the new My Minds Eye range  and they really are very verrrry nice :) I used Quite Contrary - Little Miss Muffet - Delight - Purple Plumes and Quite Contrary - Mary Mary - Sweetie Pie - Berry Preserves.

BTW peeps, if you nip over to the website following these links  you will see one side of the papers but I used the side you can’t see – typical!!!. But all the MME papers are double sided and fabulous quality.


And talking of quality, so are the blooms which are also from Tracy, as is the brad which is from the new MME Lush range.

I used the brad to fasten the blooms  together then stuck them onto a bit of tulle.

And that’s the card all done.  If you get a sec, nip over and check out what the other girlies have done with the sketch – such GORGEOUS cards to share, as always. And we also have a fab sponsor and prize for you as well :)

Well we have had the most lazy morning here at the pig sty. Emma is slowly integrating Kyla into the new house so they stayed over there last night. It was really strange to wake up, look at the clock and see  that it was 07.39am and NOT hear either singing or the other dawn chorus of ‘Grandma, is it time to get up yet?’ on a Sunday morning. 

She had a great time at her princess party and came back in a better frame of mind to the one she went out in, which was, quite frankly stroppy!!! The off they went to the new house and we had our dinner in relative peace (well the car is still here and she whinges more than Kyla!!!). There wasn't much on the telly so we (or rather I) decided to watch Most Haunted Live. Now I have to say that I love this prog – not sure how much is put on and how much is genuine though – but it’s quite entertaining.

Someone sent me a link to a quite funny clip which sort of has a pop at Derek ‘thank you Sam’  Acorah. Wanna see?

Here ya go!!

There’s an even funnier one but it’s a bit on the smutty side so best not put it on here !!! Email me if you want the link though cos it is just fab!!!

Now I’m not making fun of this sort of stuff cos I am gullible enough to believe in some of it, but I cant make me mind up about old Derek.

So on that note, I’m off to mop the kitchen floor and then go and do a bit of shopping (I know, l live a very glam life!!)

Have the best Sunday peeps and see you soon if not sooner. Hugs to all xxx
