Cutest Lil Poppet :)x


Picture 004 copy copy copy

  I LOVE this image.

It reminds me so much of Kyla with her mad hair and as soon as I saw it I just had to use it to make her a card for when she starts school soon (cry cry!!).

So I killed 2 birds etc and used it for my card over at Papertake Weekly and this week we have a sketch for you …

.. here you go :)

And this is what I did with it.

I realised when I finished it that it is really my old style ie a bit plain and not much in the way of embellies. I seem to go back there every so often and I don't think it’s a bad thing necessarily. Back to your roots and all that!!!

So of course this image is one of the new Lili Of The Valley releases which will be out on 19th (along with the new Christmas Animals) so not long to go now. They are perfect for any little poppet who is starting school or even starting back to school.

I’ll do the rest of the shopping bit at the end today, just for a change :)


Quite right too !!!!!!

It has to be pink and pretty, of course - she is a chip off the old block for sure!!

So that’s what I did and if you get a sec, nip over and check out the DT cads peeps cos they are all so gorgeous

We had a sort of quiet weekend inasmuch as we didn't have her ladyship in residence on Friday as we usually do,  so we went mad and went out for dinner – just the two of us and very nice it was too!!  Saturday was spent doing bits and bobs around the house and a bit of shopping :(

Then Emma and Kyla dropped in on their way home from their camping trip on Sunday morning and brought us these …..

bearThis is a little bear she made for me


candle and this is a candle she made for her Granddad.

Oh bless her.

It’s what it’s all about isn't it.

They went to a craft place near where they were camping for a mooch and there were classes on for the kids so Kyla and her friends had a go. I just had to share with you cos I think they are so sweet (I do realise of course  that it is very much in the eye of the beholder lol) and they will of course have pride of place until the next little trinket comes along.

Well I am off to sunny Birkenhead now but have a great day and hope everyone is OK. Before I go, here’s the shopping list  as promised-

Hi Dawny..
Ahh, Yes this is what they look like. Uniform all big and baggy. Reminds me of my little one aswell.
She will be going into year 3 and will be 7 on Friday and she hates having her hair done.
So sweet!
It's a lovely card!

Just perfect for Kyla, soon as I saw this image on cats blog knew you'd love it. I do too but have no little school girl suited to it, maybe I'll buy it anyway. janex

I saw this figure and immediately thought about my grand daughter who will be going back to school soon. Then is read your text...my grand daughter's name is Kyla, too. She, too, has the hair which is what make me think of her in the first place. Can't wait to get this one!
