Another rainy day and a very proud mummy moment!!!

Papers- Happy Happy Birthday- Birthday boy colourway

***This is my 2nd post for today so please scroll down or go HERE for my Tidlly Inks challenge post***

Hiyah peeps!!

I had some me time today which was lovely so I decided to have a play with my other Rainy Day from Saturated Canary digi's that was left from my playtime yesterday!!!!! (well, she did look kinda lonely sat there on her own!!!)
My printer has decided that anything with yellow in will not be printed without looking all weird so I am down to my dark colours only!! and being as I only have a couple of red, a couple of blue and greys (warm and cool) in my copics box I decided they should have an outing for a change!!

Rainy Day was lots of fun to colour today and then I distressed the edges and decided to do some hand stitching too.

I chose the splotty paper from my Happy Happy birthday cd because I decided it makes a neat rain splot background!! then I printed out the dark blue lineny looking one and pulled in some red paper from my stash to match my colouring.

Then the postman came and I had the best surprise ever, it was a postcard from Little mo's headteacher and it said...
I did what every proud mummy would do and cried!!!! I am so unbelievably proud of him. 

Right off to get a snuggle from Mo, then its bathtime!!

huge hugs Lou xxxx

Morning Peeps!!

Its that Tiddly time of week again and so its time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly inks challenge blog.
And this week it is a super one, we want you to join us over the next two weeks with a special journal page---or project (featuring a Tiddly Inks image, hopefully). We thought the extended time would be helpful if art journaling is new to you.

And for me, art journalling was totally new(....yup.....I panicked totally when I got the email for this challenge from our Christy!!!!) so after much scouring of google ( don't worry, Christy has found some excellent linkies over on the challenge blog for you to peeky at!!) I took the plunge and decided to do a page on my utter confusion of where to start!!!!

Aida represents a very confounded Lou and the string is my loopy mind trying to work out where to go!! lol!!! anyhoo a bit of scrunching up paper, distressing and heat embossing copper powder and I was a bit happier about my new learning curve!!! and I can happily report I am busy with page 2 already!! yey lou!!!!

Well, thats me for today then!!! I am going to take little Mo to school ad then pop in on my mum, then its home for some crafty goodness!!!!

Huge hugs
Lou xxxxx
