So now we have some LOs!

So after no LOs for a long time it was the UK Scrappers cybercrop that finally gave me the kick I needed and got me creating again! Have not added any journalling or title to the first LO cause I want to frame it. Done in my fave colours with some of my fave K&Co papers as well, the ribbon on the LO is the one that is in DDs hair.

Have to say this is the fastest LO I have ever done in my entire life as the deadline for uploading during the CC was fast approaching, have to say it is not one of my faves but pays tribute to a much loved cat, Tangle who was tragically run over before he could even reach his second birthday.

These are some photos I took and have been meaning to scrap for ages! In fact I have to confess this is actually the first Christmas LO I have ever done despite the fact I seem to have lots of Christmas stash. All the papers on this are from DCWV, the letters are Thickers by American Crafts with the little Candy Cane from K&Co. Another great class from the CC but these were the only three I managed to get done cause BT decided it was time for my internet to stop working so at 5pm on the Saturday I had to call it a day much to my annoyance!

Still the inspiration was flowing so I did not stop and went on to create this:

It was a class from the CC and the web was meant to be created by sewing - which is NOT me at all unless it is cross stitch of course! So the inspirstion was there and my web is created with Stickles instead PLUS I finally used some of my Halloween papers from DCWV that I had so coverted at the time and never ever touched!

Also did some hidden journalling on this one to show where the title came from:

For those of you who have never seen this this is the cover of the book "Room on The Broom" which at the time DD absolutely loved - you will see she has tried to be the same and poor Mog was tied onto her broom!

So to the final LO for now - are you still with me????

Just realised I have been having good use out of my DCWV papers cause this is from the Butterflies and Blossoms collection which I got for my birthday! Glittery swirls were created with the help of a template and then covered with Stickles to make them sparkle! There are lots of jewels on this LO too courtesy of my bejeweller. So who can we see here then? My lovely friend Kaz and her (now) fiance Rich who are gettine married in September 2010. Kaz thinks the world of my DD and is now her adopted Godmother as she no longer sees one set of godparents - they left for the Med and we never heard from them again so if anyone knows where Lyn and Paul Hanby are please let me know!

Thanks for sticking with me for so long - going to be a better blogger in future (yes yes I knwo you have heard this before!!!) so will only be the few cards or LOs to show you - speaking of which the next time will be cards again as I have been a busy bee.

Waiting too for my Stazon to arrive as I have the new range of Dandelion and Daisy stamps which I have yet to play with so watch out for some creations with those!!!
