52Q Challenge

Over on the Bubbly Funk forum a group of us have taken up the challenge from Emily Falonbridge to answer a question a week about yourself. Hence the 52Q title of the challenge. The idea is to answer the set question on a seperate card each week, many people use playing cards for this but mine are going to be a bit bigger as i'm using the computer to print out my backgrounds and answers.

These are my covers for the book I will make when they are all finally completed in a years time. I covered thick card and punched holes so that the whole thing can be bound using my Bind it All when the time comes.

The papers are from Hot of the Press Citrus pack, the spotty ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis. The lace, letter tiles and cream plaque are from Kaz in the secret advent thingy. I used fabric flowers from my stash and the brad is a tiny glittered one from Papermania. The letter and numbers are stamped and embossed in purple on pale purple card and painted with shimmery watercolour paints.

It's strange how purple and lime green have become my favourite colours, when Sallie suggested them for her bedroom about 9 years ago I thought it a very odd combination. I suppose after living with it for so many years it grew on me.

More Goodies

We had to go to the Post Office sorting place yesterday to collect a package of crafting goodies which were just too big to go through the letterbox.

This is what I got. They are all from Crafty Devils who had a sale on last week and I couldn't resist.
So far i've used just one of the lovely little glittered brads and used the Flower soft to decorate one of the panels.

Baby Boy?

We are due to become Granparents again by the end of this month. Our eldest son and his partner are expecting a baby boy but not wanting to tempt fate I have knit in cream yarn. The pale blue can wait until after the birth if they want to me to do any more knitting.
