And so I create…

It’s been cold
It’s been wet
It’s rained
And it’s rained
So while the girls have been at school Lucy and I have nuggled under a blanket while we watched The Fairies on telly
Would have been nice to spend all day doing that but I didn’t :) and neither did she lol
Tuesday I was inspired by Donna Downey’s creations so pulled out some paints and made these


I had missed my hole punch :)
Made this for Megan


and this for Jessica


Not inspired by Donna but by the fact that I often find an toilet roll that needs replacing I created this ummm statement…


Yesterday Elizabeth came home with this Elephant mask that she had made at school


This week has been another ‘better’ week and on Tuesday I made this page about her ‘rewards’


Yep that’s an opened out envelope there in the blue and white, love that :)

Journaling, and the heart was from Gudrun


Last night Jessica was enrolled at Guides

so it was a late night for our little rabbits and boy you could tell :)
I took the girls to get their haircuts this afternoon and crossed another thing off my ‘have to do before we go away’ list :)
Today I  also had a little play, making this page inspired by the new One Little Word challenge prompt, Beauty


was nice to pull out the masking tape and corrugated cardboard again, mix in some pattern paper, machine stitching and paint… bliss :)


Did you spy some more of Gudrun’s paper down there at the bottom?? Delish!


Close up of journaling :) Oh and I made the ‘Y’ using a ‘v’ and the top off an ‘f’


Well that’s that
Friday tomorrow, can’t say YAY loud enough!
Off to visit my Great Aunt in the morning and then hope to find some time in the afternoon with some scrapping, we will see :)

Pin It Now!

Just love the elephant mask and glad that the week went well.

    I'm laughing with you b/c of my own obsession with TP. might be all the times my house and car got hit during high school! I always stock up and buy bulk at the super store...35 rolls and counting, for just little ole me!
