I love these Crocs, they're not real but my God are they comfy! Better than the authentic ones I reckon. And when I saw the little Care Bear Jibbitz I had to have them, I used to LOVE my Care Bears and I know they are tucked away in my Dad's garage somewhere!
And I have to say this.....I know something secret!!! Sssshhhh! Can't say too much yet but if you love reading blogs and competitions and freebies keep your eyes peeled because there's something about to happen over at CTYD, so keep looking it should be going up tomorrow!!!

Chipboard Projects

A LO using Samantha Walker Day By Day papers, I used the Black Leaf and the Quadrant, plus one of the stickers from the Tags & Accents Sheet. The chipboard butterflies came from the Bare Element Dimension - Wings set, these are fab, you get three sheets of die cut shapes, in this case butterflies and they are so lovely!! I used two of the smaller butterflies and inked them all over and cut some scraps of the Quadrant paper to fit.

Second is a card, the papers and ribbon came from one the HOTP card makers kits, The chipboard heart I coloured with a black pen and glued on, I filled the inside of the heart with glue and a heavy sprinkling of glamour dust.

Third is another card, once again the papers and ribbon are from one of the HOTP card makers kits. The chipboard is actually from We R Memory Keepers Promenade collection, I have used most of the papers but I still had some chipboard tags left, so I painted the centre of the flower with acrylic paint to match my card and stuck the Happy Birthday on top!

Gotta Love These Papers!

I absolutely adore the Bo Bunny - Teen Chic paper range, it's really, bright, really girly and really fun to work with and the stickers are fab.

I've been working on other projects with the papers including the sweetie tin below and a decorated matchbox to follow and these cards were made with some of the leftovers.

I have one thing to say...

BL@@DY HELL it worked!!!!! LOL!


First is a card I made using a HOTP Personal Shopper Cardmaking Kit, I die cut the title, I punched a circle out and I added an eyelet just above it, then I hung from it a lovely, cute ladybird charm.

Second I used an entire pack of Romantic Heart charms and using a pair of pliers I hung them from an old piece of chain I had knocking around, I added a clasp and voila! One charm bracelet!

Testing!!!! LOL!

Okay, third pic as promised, I really hope this scheduled posting works, could make things a lot easier for me, maybe I won't forget to blog so much!!!
A pic of a lizard I took in a reptile place, quite a handsome chap really but I was really happy with how clear the picture was!
Not going to rabbit on here, incase this doesn't work!

Holiday Snaps

Just thought I'd share some of my favourite holiday snaps from when DH and I went away to Norfolk for a week last month! I took loads and I do have one particular favourite, stunning shot, but right now I am hanging on to that as I have plans for that photo! In my opinion it's the best photo I have ever taken and is definately worthy of something more than my blog!! First picture was up at Blakeney Point, while we waiting for the tide to come in so we could go out in a boat to see the seals!

Second picture is one of my favourites from the 40 or so pics I snapped of the seals they are TOO cute! This chap was a particularly large one, shame we missed the pups though, I think we were a little early for them, now that would have been cute!
Third picture is in a scheduled post which I am now about to try and master! Wish me luck, I will see if I can get it to work!

Time to craft!

I always fancied doing an altered clock and finally got my butt into gear and went out and bought a clock! I love it, I used papers from my DT kit, they are Mod Design Whirligig, I love them and I love the clock as well!! I have given up asking DH to hang it on the wall for me though so I'm going to get the hammer out tomorrow and do it myself!! He moans at me for nagging but is it any wonder really!?

I also have made recently an altered sweetie tin using Bo Bunny - Teen Chic, which I am also very happy with and had great fun doing, I want more sweetie tins now though so there's a good excuse to buy sweets!!

Also I have just set a challenge on the CTYD blog so pop on over and check it out!
