Good Afternoon, xx

I've had the pleasure of going to a Scrapbooking crop on a Friday Evening, at BearPark in Durham, it's run by a very talented and lovely Lady , Jen Fisher....I was asked by another lovely Lady   Janice Audrey Wright, if I wanted to go, as I had mentioned it on Facebook, but  dont have the transport, so of course I jumped at the chance.... so now, Janice picks me up, and we have a Great fun filled few hours at the crop...  thoroughly enjoy it, it's so relaxed and friendly..... 
The only thing is Jen likes to take pic's ha ha ha , and of course  hate my pic taken, but hey ho, it's fun...

My Toys

Evening everyone, 

I've not blogged for ages, my mojo for paper crafting has gone on it's holls I think lol...

My son was going to send  my baby Granddaughters first size clothes off to someone to make them into a teddy, as a keepsake,  well!!!!!!! I could nt believe my ears, and very nicely told him I would make one for her... 
I would nt mind, but he was always complaining about pins been dropped on the floor, when he was younger, his second home was a local fabric shop hee hee hee, so  you can imagine my surprise when he told me, he was sending a stranger his daughters clothes, so she could make a teddy lol...... 

I enjoyed  sewing again, and have been making small teddies, and have just finished my first rocking horse..
I used  an off cut for the rocking horse, just to see what it was like.....

What do you think????

The Teddy is for the baby, and the rag doll is for her big sister..

Happy Day

Hi Everyone....

Oh I have some exciting news, well !!!!! it's exciting  for me lol....

I was asked by the lovely Kirsten Lapping from  Kirsten Lapping Designs  to be part of  her Design Team... I bet you cant guess my answer ha ha ha ....... I would be mad to say no.....

I went to a workshop with my crafty buddy Kay,  which Kirsten was hosting..
Kirsten is so friendly and helpful, her products are amazing and so versatile .... The range of colours in her Glitter are Gorgeous , they can even be used on your skin,Kirsten even does glitter tattoos ... and they can be used as nail art......
Kirsten s embossing powders are my new best friend lol... I love them , they come in Gold, Silver, Slate, Copper and  Clearly magic.. 
The beauty of the embossing powders is that once you have heated them, you can then cut them, put them through your cutting machines, and even use with an embossing folder....

I've had a little play with them today, and love them .. 
I used Kirsten s  Fairy Princess stamp set, and some of the glitter to make an ATC, and to decorate a little book cover.. 
I used Kirstens embossing powder in the Gold to decorate an ATC holder.... 

You can find more info about Kirsten and her products at ;


Pop over and have a look ...

My little book..

And my ATC holder
