Papers- Studio Calico Atlantic.
Dies- Memory Box Precious stars.
Hi everyone!

Its my turn to post a make over on the Mo's Clubhouse blog and I wanted to share my make in celebration of the gorgeous little Filippo our Franz had a couple of weeks ago.I just had to use Wynken, Blyken and Nod... for my make. It so reminded me of Franz' gorgeous little 3 children, Milla, Niki and Filippo, that I just had to colour it up with 2 boys and a girl in their magical little shoe!! The net is actually beautifully sparkley but as always, getting that photo of sparkle eluded me and after 7 goes I thought 'hey, peeps will know Lou blinged it out!!!!' lol!!

I have had that little starry ribbon in my stash for soo long and I was so pleased to use it for this card.Its so pretty I might need to try and find more of it now!! 

Right, enough boring Lou waffle!! I bet y'all are asleep now!!

Thank you for popping in on me today.

Baby and Bunny...

Morning everyone!!

Happy Saturday!!! we are going to have some family bubble time today. I love saturdays, we always make time just to be on a saturday and its the best feeling.

I am popping my card for my gorgeous friend Franz today. Its currently winging its way to her and her family in the mail but I can't wait to share it any longer!! he he he!!

I absolutely loved getting the texture into his soft little blanket, I do it by colouring in just dots and it looks soooo pretty once its done. All I needed to do then was add the personal deets, which I did using word and a little tag from one of my magnolia doo hickey club die sets!

I am also daftly proud of his chubby little cheeks (... the ones on his face  he he he!!!) because I actually managed to get that full little baby cheek look in them!!

Right, I had best pootle on! bubble time is calling me and I have a couple of things to get done first!!

Thank you for popping in

Bunny Love!!!

Afternoon all!!

I thought I would pop in with a make I did a couple of weeks ago. It was for a something and our gorgeous Linda used the same poppy stamps die too so I booted my little bunny card out of the something so you guys get to see it instead!!!... the something of course is the Die Cut Essentials magazine, due out on May 21st. I am spoilt because I have seen the makes from the girls and oooooooooooooh they are delicious!!

I love this banner die but found it a tricky one for a Lou's brain to put into use! lol! so I added some strips of my paper and a couple of the sentiment sheet 'posters' to layer it out with before popping my bunny out on some hot glue over the whole lot!!

I made my little bunny look all textured by dotting on him with my blender pen after he was coloured up! soo cute!!

Thank you for popping in

I love this little 'birthday fishes' sentiment too. Its from the Floating by clear stamp set, also from Tiddly Inks and I had a hard time choosing from the 2 fabulous sentiment circles in the set, in the end I totally cheated and let Mo choose! he he he!!

Isn't she just gorgeous! I had to make her real mermaid looking of course with some  green hair and magical scaley skin!! here's a better picture of how she looks!


Right, time to chill, we took Mo to the fair tonight with his little friend and my friend and he loved it!! Scott got totally squished by Mo and I on the Jimeney cricket ride! it makes me laugh the whole way through! its bouncy and sooo much fun!!! and so many other rides were just £1 tonight! fabulous fun, we left nibbling freshly made donuts and sweets! perfect!!!! here's mo on one of the inflatable slides, it was sooo funny, my camera took the photo just as his hair floofed up and looked like Wolverine!!!

Baby Fairy with Ladybug....

3 Baby Fairies set.
Paper- First Edition New Leaf.
Dies- Little Darlings Dewdrop circle die set.
Little Darlings Dewdrop border die.

Afternoon peeps!

Its my turn to post over on the Mo's Clubhouse blog today in with a magical baby fairy make to cheer up your weekend! This 3 Baby Fairies set is one of my absolute favorites from the shop, its so sweet.

I coloured this little cutie pie up a few weeks ago and have only just gotten round to attaching him to somethings! it felt soooo good to take a break from the tiling of the bathroom and make a bit of something!

I made a little sentiment on my computer and cut it with a label die and just tucked it in over on the top right. This little cutie really didn't need much more than that.

Right...back to the tiling! just a little bit left to do and then grouting! 

Thank you for popping in
