just messing about

Hi there, I've seen quite a few of these baby onesies in blogland recently and thought I would have a go, it was my great niece Mariah's birthday so made one for her, I used pearlesent card that I embossed , various nesties for the bib and leg frills. I think I might do my next one with a little animal stamped on the bib and maybe a pocket.
Hope you've had a good weekend, I ended up working for most of mine, plus were decorating the bedroom so of course the whole house is upside down, we had to sleep in the spare room last night, which is upstairs, and it totally confused the poor dogs.
Here is a link to a you tube video showing how to make one for yourself.

Hi there, I made this for one of my friends, we go swimming together and she has just got some swimming goggles, she swims under water for about 10 yards then sticks her head out the water to get a breath and have a look around then down she goes again, its so funny to watch and she has now earned the name Meerkat
I found this digi at papercraft inspirations it was a freebie by Angela Poole, thank you Angela.
I coloured it with copics, glaze pen and glitter on the cake. The papers are from Dovecraft and a pearl pen.
It's been scorching here this weekend like the middle of Summer, yet all the leaves on the trees are turning ready for Autumn. Still best make the most of it whilst its here, the dogs have had some extra long walks in the fields so they are both snoring at the moment.

Papelitos Challenge#10

Hi there, its new release day over at PapelitosStamps, and I have used this gorgeous Gladiator one, I must say it took me a couple of goes before I got the gold colour I wanted, the I had a senior moment and put my copics away before I'd written down the numbers, dooh!,
This week at Papelitos Stamps Challenge the theme is "Anything Goes" a nice easy one,
the sentiment is a strip of rolled up paper, I'd been trawling the net looking for a scroll digi then I had a brain storm and made my own, must say I was pleased with the effect, used a mixture of my minds eye papers, distressed with ink,  blue gems and ribbon, nesties and a personal impressions sentiment.
