Hello peeps!!
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Mine only started today as I was on a course yesterday at work but oh wow it was fabulous. We had 2 ladies from Reggio Emilia come to talk to us about the principles they use in their education centres. It was awesome and I feel completely inspired and rejuvinated in my job...just in time to have a week off with Mo!!! :)
So now I have to firstly apologise to Lou who has probably fallen off her chair because I have actually entered the Basic Grey Challenge this week!!!!! Every 2 weeks I promise myself I will stop stroking my Basic Grey paper stacks and use them!!
The challenge is a sketch challenge and it is lovely.

I managed well last week making some boy cards with one of my stacks but this week it was the turn of my Sugared paper pad. All the papers on my card are out of that pad apart from the paper i stamped Raven and the sentiment on, they are white with a good old splodging of Antique Linen distress ink on!!!!

This stack is seriously stroke only in my crafty room but in celebration of both my treasured bloggy friends Fleur and Lou being on the Basic Grey challenge DT I have used some!!!!!!
I coloured Raven up, trying to use similar colours to my yummy papers and I made my flowers with scraps of my paper too!! ooh so organised!!!! (...nope it won't last!!!!)

Right then I am off to get a cuppa and get Mo ready for bathtime fun and then I might even go back out and do a bit more making!!!
huge hugs
Lou xxxx
