Hi everyone!!

I hope you are all having a great week. Mo is fighting a bit of a sore throat and coldy feeling today so I have been having a play while he chills with a book, poor pickle.

Anyway, I was in the mood for something other than a card make today and my hubby cut m,e these yummy slices of wood that needed something fun doing with them!

I decided to go for a mystical woodland theme scene for the gorgeous Nymphlytte from Saturated Canary. She is just gorgeous and a relaxing dig for some bits to make a scene and grab my hot glue was just what I needed today.

I even found the umph to make a little stream with a scrap of paper, some woodware fluffy stuff for foam and some gorgeous beeds in different sizes, topped off with glaze to keep it looking watery!!! I tried to get a piccie for you all with the flash but not sure if it worked!! lol!!

Right, going to try and tempt the little guy to eat! Does anyone else wonder how their little peeps pick up so many bugs?!! lol! 

Huge hugs for you all

Boo-licious treats...

Morning peeps!!

I had to get fiddling with that Frightfully Fun stamp set again!! I just can't stop thinking of bits to make with it!!

Again, IKEA came to my whims of what I needed to make with a set of stacking gift boxes just screaming out to be spooked up!! I grabbed the purple one and got busy with some mossy stuff I got from the Range and then it was time for some embossing fun for the little stars. I love that all these little scene building bits come in this set. I stamped the lil ghosties and curled them round my dowel before popping them on with some foam.

The Frightful Fence die is still getting some hammer! I glued it around the lid of the box so the lid is all one cute little piece of fun when its off! LOVE IT!!!

I fussy cut a little banner for that fabulous sentiment and rolled it around my dowel to get it looking all funky!!

Mo even made me a super cute little skull out of clay to include in our little photo set up!! he he he!!

right, got to go. Its our anniversary today and we are both feeling rather under the weather! we took Mo out for a cooked breakfast so we have done something nice and we are going to try a walk on the common with the dogs!!

Thank you for popping in
hugs and squishes, Lou xx


Image- Choir (Redux).
Morning everyone! 

I just had to share a bit of festive cheer for you!! I couldn't resist but use this gorgeous little  Choir (Redux) that Maurie recently re jigged. Its just divine. I used it for a cute little gift bag ready to stuff with some christmas goodies.

I got these little gift bags in the sale at IKEA last year and i can honestly say they have been one of my most fun buys! they are just 4" square but make the cutest gift bags ever. promised last is Mo and his little Darwin having their first bathtime bonding session. If you have small pets and small children this really is a great way to bond them with no worries about escaped little furries!! Mo loved being able to watch Darwin scurry around all his toys and after just 3 minutes Darwin was happy to go up to Mo and take food from his hand. Magic.

How to be a wizard....

Morning gorgeous peeps of the world!!

I hope you are all waking up to magical mondays! I am currently still at work but will be home at 7:10am ready for a quick snuggle with my boys and furry babies before I zonk out for an hour!!

I LOVED making this book record for my little Mo. This image was very awesomely based on my lil pickle. Now anyone who knows me well will know that Mo is a complete book-a-holic and is sooo into Harry Potter and making spells. His reaction when he saw this image based on him was just magical and I have been desperate to colour it up ever since!

Mo loves to just jot down a couple of thoughts on the books he reads so I thought an uber fun reading record would be fab. I made the little recording bit in word and cut it with the tag die from my  Die Namics Blueprints 9.

And of course I had to make a little wand out of a stick from the garden! well, I had to have some authenticity!! he he he!!
