I can reveal!!!!!

WOW what a few weeks they were - great fun...........
So here at last, the LO i created with the Cleo Crafts July kit which goes on sale in 2 days.

I was chosen as their Guest Designer for July and i was so happy to be given this opportunity and would like to take this chance to say a huge Thank you to Louise and Tara!!!!!

So the LO is created with kit products (apart from cotton for sewing and gems) - what brilliant colours and was so well co-ordinated that i just had to use as much as possible.

I did manage to make some cards also with the various pieces left over but did add some of my own products!!!

The only products used from the Cleo Craft kit are the patterned papers and ribbon - all othere pieces from my own stash. This was a card i made for a friend who moved away last week and thought the colours worked perfectly together.

Sneak Peak!!!

Well yesterday it felt like Christmas, waiting for the postman to bring me my goodies from Cleo Crafts - the company that i am Guest Designer for, for the month of July.

A little later than usual, but finally he was here - pizza box in tow!!!

WOW - It is lovely, colours and co-ordination are spot on. I am a happy girl. I had been worrying about it since i heard i had been chosen - what if i couldn't produce anything or if i make a mistake - aaarrrrrggghhhhh!!!!

So i have set off on the road to producing a LO - It took me over 6 hours to find the photo, but it's perfect and compliments the paper perfectly (well i think so). I stayed up till late last night cutting and shuffling, only to wake this morning and change it all. As i have said before i am known for being a shuffler. It has to be perfect before i glue!!!!

I might even have it finished today - if not by tomorrow hopefully - Just really hoping the girls from Cleo Crafts, Louise and Tara like what i have produced.

Obviously the kit i have is top secret, until the end of the month - when the kit goes on sale to the public - so for those of you that are waiting for the release i have done a sneak peak for you all - doesn't it look scrummy!!!!!!!.

I will be back in the coming days for more sneak peaks - so watch this space!!!!

Take care

3 post in 1 day!!!!

Well i'm back for the third time but i have a LO to show you.

Had this idea early last week and just had to give it a go. I wanted to create a LO with a difference. Had this photo of Hannah, taken last year at Virginia Water sitting amongst a field of flowers and thought it would look good in a flower shape and hey bingo here is the final result.

Have kept it simple, hence no pp - but added lots of blooms and bling and am so in love with american craft thickers!!!!!!

Well hope you have all had a lovely day - and hopefully be back soon



Cleo Crafts

The sun is shining!!!!

Horaay the sun is shining again after what seems never ending rain - although i think the rain is back again for the weekend.
So we have had a busy week - with nothing special.
Liam and Hannah were on half term last week which meant a few play dates with friends - which was nice, and now they are both back at school and normality reigns again.
I am off out tomorrow night with a few girls from Hannah's school which will be nice - Mexican dinner - yum yum!!!!!! but nothing compares to a proper Mexican meal in TX!!!

Hannah has had another ear infection this week - yet again we sit in the doctors surgery, i think they know me by forename there now.......................... i do get the look when i arrive.

On the scrapping front - nothing to show at the minute - i am currently working on a book which is taking longer than expected - but hopefully will be worth it. I had to go out and buy a few pieces at the weekend, sandpaper and string!!! there that will get you wondering.......................

Hopefully be back at the wekend with an update and a few piccies as it's Liam 12th birthday on saturday - where has time gone!!!
Anyway hope your all well and will be back soon

Take care
