A promise is a promise...

...and I did promise to be back soon with this Baby Boy LO!




I used Bo-Bunny Chipboard swirls, but they were originally brown so i painted them with cream acrylic paint, inked the edges, then spritzed them with Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist.
I did start out trying to create more of a baby-ish page, (a bit softer and cuddlier!) but I couldn't resist getting carried away and started distressing everything! I really wanted to finish off with some pure white flowers, but had none (!!!) so they may be added on later!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Yep, that's me! I am just so glad that I don't have to worry about school runs at the moment too!

I am still drowning myself in getting this new little business venture up and running, and haven't had a moment to stop! At the mo, I am preparing for a craft show I managed to get the last table for, which is happening on Bank Holiday Monday. Ok, so it is two weeks away, but after browsing the web for creative craft stall ideas, I have made the not-so-executive decision to totally revamp mine. BIG JOB! I have spent the last few nights making some pretty bunting to hang above the stall, showing off lots of the different styles and techniques I use. And now, i am currently trying to create a baby boy page, to show off as an example of a birth/christening gift...Phew!

Anyway, I shall take loads of photos of the stall when it is all assembled, and post them soon after.
As for scrappy 'me' time? What's that again? I would love to sit down with no guidelines or orders to do, but that will have to wait! I have recently made these pages....
2 are commisions, 1 is an example for the stall, but I have really enjoyed doing all of them.








I will show the baby boy one when it is finished, and have a whole load of Sarah's cards work to let you see...so I shall be back soon...promise!!! :-)
