Way, Way too long!!!

Its been way, way too long since i visited my little blog - a whole 7 months. I really do not know where time has gone this year, we are almost upon the Festivities of Christmas already!!

Now the problem is, where to start!!!, one of the reasons i have left it sooo long to come back and blog, do i track back over the last 7 months and fill you in on whats been happening or just start a fresh from today??, decisions decisions!!!

I think for now i will take it one step at a time, as although i have been in hiding i have been slowly creating various bits and pieces which i will hopefully showcase over the next few weeks, see i intend to keep this blog malarkey up!! **coughs quietly**

So today i wish to show you my Design Team LO using the fantastic Cleo Crafts November Kit which consists of the ever so popular Pixie-Licious line by Cosmo Cricket!! I absolutely love these papers, beautiful colours and the designs are fab!!!

I made this LO using a photo of me as a little girl with my bestest friend ever, "Sebby" our Siamese cat. He was an absolutely adorable cat, such stunning features, but unfortunately we never had him long as he got killed on the road one morning, i was totally devastated!!! It broke my heart, but thankfully as my Dad was a keen photographer we have many photos.

I used Fairy Rings paper as the main background with hints of Flower Fields to give some colour. All lettering and embellishments have come from my own stash, which is ever growing :)!!

Sorry for the quality of the photo, had to use my phone as my Eldest and DH have gone to LDN today to see Top Gear Live and have taken my camera :(.

As i had so much paper in this kit i made a gift tag for my Nieces upcoming birthday next week
she is an arts and crafts addict just like her Auntie, so i know she will love it, but i am certain she will love the gift inside more :)!!!

I used one of my stamps from C.C Designs, love these!! It was Cupcake Kiki.

Decided to use the Butterfly Kisses paper so coloured accordingly with my Pro-Markers. Made a large gift tag from Kraft card stock and i must say i think it turned out quite well!!

So as you can see i am still enjoying creating, all be it at a slow pace, lol. I do have some more Pixie papers left which i have lined up for another project, a pin board project!! I have so far, painted the frame but had to wait to get some new ink for my printer, now that's done i might actually sit down today and make a start!!

It feels really good to have found some time to update my blog, hopefully now i have made the big leap i won't leave it as long!!

I hope your enjoying this beautiful crisp autumn morning, we are tonight of to a Fireworks display which i am looking forward to. Have a great weekend everyone and i hope to be back real soon

Take care
