Bit Mean With The Pics But I Really Like The Project!!!


Hi there possums and hope you are all ok today.

Please excuse the strange post title but I think I'm having a bit of a brain freeze cos it was the most imaginative thing I could come up with lol. That said, it's actually true - there aren't as many pics today and I do really like this project.

So here's another little something I took to sunny Peterborough last week - ooh it seems so long ago now.



This came about quite by accident really.
I was having yet another one of me major craft room clear outs, like you do,  and I came across a box of chipboard stuff I'd forgotten I had so I thought I'd do a little Mother's Day plaque. I was quite pleased with the result and I'd forgotten how much fun this stuff is to work with.

The papers are once again from Lili of The Valley Baskets & Bunnies paper pad which will soon be on sale.

The colours are just beautimous :)



There isn't a lot to this really - it's so easy to do .
I made the flowers up out of the papers but you could  use anything you had to hand I guess.




Time to fess up here.
I only had one 'M' and one 'U' so I had to use the negative from the 'M'. But I think it looked OK and possibly adds a bit more interest.

What d'ya think peeps?
What is it they say?
Necessity is the mother of invention. 
Well it was true in this case lol!!


Right it's another quickie again today - still not 100% but better than I was yesterday which is good.
Emma, Tim and the kids are moving in with us tomorrow while they sort out some jobs on their new house. It isn't 'new' new and needs some work doing to it but it will be fab once it's all done. So they are all in residence for a month or so  until it's sorted.  I am sooo looking forward to having my two little treasures about the place again, woohooooo :)

I'll be back tomorrow with something a bit special so till then, enjoy your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
