Today its sunny, and you can hear all the little birdsong.
I just read Krista's post on her Saturated Canary blog about the holiday at the beach house, and the SMASH page she made about simple days.I find her blog and post's very inspiring and her style. Im hoping to do a SMASH page about my time by the beach too once i get my camera out!
I have already been busy crafting, so i should have some projects ready to show soon.

House mouse challenge: Photo inspiration HMFMC115

Good morning!
Well, inbetween making challenge cards, birthday cards and mothers day cards, i am busy with my SMASH books. Yes, My pink one arrived yesterday as well as the date stamper YAY! { I always wanted one when i used to go to the library!} and i have created my first page, but thats for another post....
So today, im sharing my card i have made for the house mouse and friends challenge. I was inpired by both the picture and the colours and created this.
Now, im sorry if you think my layers are'nt straight, thats because my trimmer broke halfway through making it, so we had an emergency drive to the craft shop.
The papers i used were from a magazine we got a while ago now, and the sentiment came from a Polka doodles stamp set, again from a magazine. The image was coloured with promarkers, and theres a strip of ribbon behind on the papers.

Thats all for now, i hope you like my card.

Scrapbooking Digby : Part 1

This is a new part im going to do about scrapbooking.
For the past two years, ive been wanting to scrapbook my dog, Digby, as well as a scrapbook about my family, but ive never done it.
I take plenty of photos, but leave them on the computer, so i made a page up after looking at a scrapbook sketch and Creativity magazine.
The page is all about Digby in the garden, his first summer.


Getting to know water, and splash in it!

Tilda's birthday

Good morning!
Happy first of March!
My post today is for three different challenges.
Official magnolia: Birthday and sketch
Simply magnolia: Bling and bows
Wild orchid crafts challenge: White and 1 colour.
So, i used white and pink as my main colours, as they wanted the card to be girly, i stuck to the sketch, adding ribbons across and down instead of paper pannels. And i added a birthday sentiment.
For bling and bows, well i added a bow, and pearls. Im not a massive fan of rhinestones, i dont know why, i dont use them very often so i stuck with pearls, my faviourites. I think its because there not as showy as rhinestones, they blend in but add dimension.
For wild orchid crafts, i added four of their rosebuds to a prima rosebud.
