Morning Peeps!!
I hope you are all ready for a fabulous friday!! My house is full of excitement as it is my birthday and Little Mo is having a little jubilee party at school this afternoon! he woke up at 4am raring to go!!!!...though it wasn't too bad as I went to bed at 7pm last night and didn't wake until 3:45am this morning!!! When I get home from work tonight we are going to order a pizza and get it delivered, which is a huge treat!!

I wanted to share the latest book mark I have made for Mo. He loves this little soldier guy as he is a big playing with his little plastic soldiers kinda guy!!! we find them 'on lookout' in all kinds of places...airing cupboard, in the garden, on my craft the crafty things I make...kinda all over really so I decided he needed a BackYard General on this one.
(Bit of a blurry piccy as he is all shiny!!!)

Last sunday I had an awesome morning with my mum and my big sister plodding around the sincerely yours craft show in Lincoln. Whilst wombling around we found an awesome decopatch stall called Farmhouse Chicken, heres their ebay store. Oh my gosh!!! the stall had loads more than there is listed in the shop at the moment, you should of seen all the awesome things you can decopatch!!! it was full of gorgeous completed projects too! anywhoo, mum got Mo a dinosaur which he has happily been pootling on with over this last week, (it still isn't finished but when it is I will post it!!!!) There is tonnes of paper left in the 5 we chose in the pack so I 'borrowed' some to make Mo a new bookmark!! I added a little strip of netting too that I coloured in to match with the same promarkers I coloured him in with.

Best of all, its all covered with the glue which gives a waterproof finish! Mo loved this one!! he loved the way the decopatch papers looked like camouflage!! He also adored the 'from' and 'to' tags I cut from my cricut basecamp cart. He always asks " where did I read from mumma?" and then follows with " and I gotto page..." then he will put his fingers in each page and see how much of a 'chunk' of book he read!!  its so funny!!

Here's a 'pens used' piccy!!!!
And talking of cute little he is in the t-shirt he made for his jubilee party today!!!
And here's a close up of the puffy painting union jack he did. It took him ages and he asked me to do the teeny bit of blue on the left top as he was scared he would go into the white!!! I love how he wrote Mo underneath it!! I pencilled on a rectangle shape and left him to it! the glittery puffy paints were so cool!! and on a cheap white t-shirt they made a super fun activity!!
 Right then, thats it from me for today!! I am off to have a cuppa and get dressed ready for work.
Thank you for popping in on me.
huge hugglies
