Delight in the little things - Scrappy Canary challenge

Well it's nearly the end of another month and although I haven't shared anything here, I haven't been completely quiet.This is a lo I completed for the Scrappy Canary challenge. I adore these photos of my daughter with my Dad. She just loves being on the farm and helping out :)
And here is the sketch...
Hopefully I can squeeze in a couple more challenges before the end of the month. It is the weekend tomorrow afterall!
Have a great day & thanks for popping by..Jx

CKC March kit (& a photo bomber!)

When I first saw the APOCD kit on the CKC blog I got a bit confused and thought I was in the wrong place as I follow both of these sites and lurve the kits at APOCD :D
I almost always miss the kits I want to buy too as they sell out so quickly so what better than to make my own.
Then I came across these leftovers from a long ago kit and decided they would be a good start...
followed by a started and never finished background that I thought I might try to resurrect...
Add a few extra papers, some cuts outs for the ephemera & thats when the photo bomber struck!
And here it is. Some gelatos, cork, sequins & a couple of extra papers for good measure & I am ready to tackle the first challenge :) I am planning quite a few forgeries this month from making my own cork tags & woodgrain frames to using my white pen on the black card for the little sketched type tags on the paper towards the bottom right of the kit. Wish me luck!

Have a great weekend & thanks for popping by..Jx

CASology challenge #136 - Basket

Well good afternoon peeps :)
I have not entered a CASology challenge for quite some time but last night the urge was upon me and when I saw "basket" I immediately thought of this cute little stampin up stamp that I have and the rest just fell into place...
Unfortunately you can't really see it in the photo but the tulips are also sparkly thanks to my atyou spica pens. I liked putting this one together so much I made another! Not quite the same just the same layout.
Thanks for popping by & have a great day..Jx
