The Paper Shelter #130

Well I feel a right numpty, two weeks ago I said my goodbyes as I'm leaving the paper shelter, only to find I had my dates wrong and I had one more challenge left, and I'm so pleased as this weeks challenge is 

 When I made this box it was blowing a gale and very Autumonial (is that a real word?)
so I chose one of my fave (they are all my faves really) images Autumn is coming ( which is on sale at the moment so grab it while you can) I coloured her with copics. I bought the box from The Word it was only £1.99, I used bazill basics, K&Co paper, my Fiskars border punch, spellbinders , paper flowers from my stash that I coloured with copics on the edges, blue embroidery thread and pearl beads

 Don't forget if you play with a Paper Shelter image you have a chance of winning this gift voucher, it's worth $30. If you play with a different brand then you have a chance of winning three digis of your choice.

Amelie's naming day 2

Hi there, here is the little box I made for Amelie, at the moment it holds a little silver box for her to put her first tooth in when it falls out, ready for the tooth fairy, with that in mind I decided to use Summer fairy from Wee stamps, my new addiction, lol, the insides come out so she can use it as a keepsake box for all her little treasures, when she comes to stay with her Nannar.

I coloured her with copics and Sakura glitter pens, her wings have 3D laquer on, I used   papers and kraft card to mount it on, the leaves are cut from kraft using Marianne dies, theres paper roses from my stash. and spellbinders ornate oval.

Amelie's naming Day

Hi there, I'm sorry I haven't posted for a while, lifes been a bit manic of late, lots of extra work on.
Plusa great day at my Granddaughter Amelie's naming day. She was a star, such a placid baby, never cried once and she was held by nearly everyone during the day.
It's the first naming day I've been to and I thoroughly enjoyed it, so relaxed.
Here is Amelie with her Mummy and Daddy

Here is the easel card I made for them using a Wee stamp called Wee One
I'm new to Wee stamps but I have the feeling I'm going to be addicted I have four now, if I get time tomorrow I will post the little box I made her using another Wee stamp

 I coloured it with copics , used Maja Road papers,pearl brads, cream lace, paper flowers and leaves, spellbinders, Memory box corner swirl (I cut the middle bits out) LOTV sentiment stamp, pearls and a silver teddy charm.
