OK, creative update, Last Tuesday baby Daisy was born, so i got straight in and stitched this little name plaque, it is in a 6inch embroidery hoop, and hangs from the ribbon. When i finished stitching I managed to whip up this card for my sisters Birthday - which was Wednesday - we went out and had a great family shopping and lunch.
Thursday I got back in the Studio and was joined by Anne and Janet, and we all got in and did some cards. This first one, I played with my Glimmer Mist wow what an effect, I have sprayed it on too raw chipboard, that's the glimmer you can see, then I stamped a butterfly and spritzed it too!! Kye's Recipe Scrap came next, I am really loving these nights of just chatting and scrapping. Love these photos of my little man. Next up I played for a bit and completed the RAK and New Challenge this was Paulas criteria
1. Use an old embellishment that you have
had in your stash, ideally over a a lot of this myself!
2. Use only scraps, other than your base
3. Use stamps...cause I love them!
4. Use staples.

I have been happily joining the girls in the forum working on our FAFF albums...this is my page for Sharryn's Challenge We had to complete a page about out extended Family....well the design girls are my cyber this page and it's sentiment is very special to me. As part of our Challenge we had to include hidden journaling and also use a transparency, so i combined them both and used the BasicGrey Magnets the transparency just clicks onto the page to hide my journaling.

well that's all i can share at the moment...we have another challenge over at FA - the Sonia' says challenge, I have completed my page but will have to wait a few weeks to share, depending on the other girls in our round.

I have just cut and placed the Monthly sketch page inspired by Paula this month, just have to stick it all down, but think i want to ponder it a little needs something.!!!
