Tando Creative 3D Christmas Tree

I have been having fun playing with the 3D Christmas Tree from Tando Creative.
As my dining room is blue, I wanted something nice to have on the table on Xmas day. I have used Mica Sprays in Frosty Blue, silver and white to colour the chipboard and add a wee bit of stickles to the edges.
Some ribbons from our monthly kits and some bling finished this nicely.

I have also been playing with the Advent calander to stop by soon to see that

Tando Creative and more

Well OK it has been a while, lol!!!

But I have been busy! I had a bad accident a while ago when I fell off a horse and ended up badly twisting my pelvis and cracking a rib - OUCH! That put me out of action for a couple of months.
Other than that I did my first Hobbycrafts show at the SECC and had great fun! (thanks Linda and Debbi for all your help)
And generally keeping busy with the kids, dogs and website.

Recently I applied for a place on the Tando Creative Design Team and was delighted to be accepted! I stock lots of the Tando Creative chipboard designs and totally love them all!
I have attached some pics of Tando items that I have decorated

This is one of my favourites and I have used Mica Mists, Echo Park Papers and ribbons and spreayed it all with white Mica mist

Another Favourite - decorated with gorgeous My Mind's Eye papers, and have atted swirls and Dragonflies from Tando and a Prima blossom

Promise to update soon

Marianne Design Creatables

I love butterflies so when I spotted the Marianne Design Creatables Butterflies I could not resist buying some for the store and of course I had to try them out!!

I had to put a shim in my Cuttlebug (although this could be that I really do need new plates) and they cut beautifully.

I decided to make a little something for Lauren's room

I have used different shades of bazzill to cut the butterflies, mounted them on a handcut chipboard circle, and used lots of ribbon and Kaisercraft bling.

Here is a close-up

How did that happen?

Yesterday my little girl turned 10!!!!! I cannot believe it as it seems like yesterday that she was born.
She got lots of pressies - a Snow Leopard from Build a Bear and clothes for it, a gorgeous pink jumper, a top for riding and a pink tote full of goodies from her wee brother. She is loving to scrap just now and is coming to a crop with me on Sunday.
Next Saturday she is having a pony party and then we are having 10 girls back to the house (mmmmmmmm am I mad??????, lol!)

Must go and get kids from school - I leave you with a pic of my gorgeous wee girl

52 walks week 3, scrapping and CHA sneek peek

Out for a walk today (52 walks week 3), Emma and I went to our local park for a quick walk and snapped a few pics

Last weekend I did a layout of Emma

On this I have used Fancy Pants Dancing Girl papers, Hambly Overlays, bling and Riff Raff paws

Sneek peek anyone????
Sadly we won't be attending CHA as Lauren will be 10 on Tuesday and CHA is always end of Jan (of course had she been born on her due date - she would have been born 2 weeks earlier!!........mmmmm)
We have been busy ordering stash and so far Prima, Pink Paislee, Webster's Pages and Crate paper have all caught my eye

Will leave you to drool over Prima
