Back to normal - well almost normal!

Here is my baby hiding in the food press - I keep my camera in the kitchen for moments like this, I was cooking and all I heard was "Bye Bye mamma!" and she was trying to climb into the food press - what a cutie!I was at my local crop last night and I resisted temptation to do the class and decided to finish some of the stuff that I was working on. I had made this LO and was not happy with the butterflies that I used, so I stamped and cut out these ones instead and finished the LO, much happier with it now - The LO came out of a hard day with my teenage daughter and the sentiments in the journalling are very heaftfelt.

There was so many new products at the crop last night that I really spurged on some new distress inks, papers and the paperpack (amongst other things, like flowers, rub ons, card stock whew!) above from Crate Paper - Paper Dolls. There was a sheet of paper on the top of the pack, which had small squares of each of the papers in the pack and as soon as I saw it I knew what I was going to do - Love something from nothing!! I cut the squares out and punched butterflies with my MS punch. I mounted them with glue dots and had left over green card and brown card on my desk and found the quote on the web and bobs your uncle!! My mum offered to take this litte beauty from me for one of her bedrooms - can't argue as she bought me the frame. She picks up these things for me when she see them.

I have no real plans for the weekend, fancy a bit of shopping with my mum and as there is a Rugby match on I may just skip out during that time and spend time with my mum. DH has asked for time off for good behaviour on Sunday for a match, so fair is fair eh!! I have another LO in progress, it's not ready for viewing yet, just a jumble of pieces at moment!!

Have a lovely weekend!
