Good thing there are no boys!

I only seem to be able to get my head around pinks and girlie stuff at the moment, and as my cousin Deirdre in Clayton, NC, in America has just had a baby boy I better get my head around some boy stuff soon. Baby Dechlan arrived safe and happy and can't wait to see some pictures of him and his two adorable sisters are happy to have a brother, but a bit worried about having to watch Spiderman! LOL....

Any I printed two photos off last week for the circular LO (Many many thanks for all the lovely comments and yes, I took the background off and am happy with it now!) that I uploaded last week and as my box of new stash arrived from A Trip Down Memory Lane, I rummaged in the box and found these fab papers that I ordered from Fancy Pants and just started cutting and laying down.
More flowers (Sorry!) so very predictable, was going to use my new Prima ones I bought but in the end wanted to try a tutorial I found here (by Lollychops!) and they turned out fab, and her instructions are great. Pearl seed beads were sitting in my bling bag and crying out to be used, so they got glued in place.
Saw this on a LO somewhere and wanted to have a go at it, so this is folded circles, and liked the ruffle type effect it gives.
Fine cutting of an image on the PP - pain to cut, but like to cut.
Had to trim the LO sides as it won't fit into an album and used the trimming to make some spirals - never know when to leave it alone.

I am trying to convert others to crafting and Millie's mum, Audrey called over the other night for chat and I helped her make a card - this is her card, she coloured the image and I helped her pull it all together, she happy as she needed a Thank you card and she went home with one she made herself. I wonder if she will become as obsessed as me! (no room in my area for two lunatics!) Sorry the photo is so bad, it was late and bad lighting. Colours are lime green and rusty reds, with a hint of peach.

Well trying to get a babysitter for tonight and failing - 5 No's at the moment, so looks like one or both of us staying home tonight! Have a great weekend.
