***This is my 2nd post for today so if you want to have a nosey at my spooky

Hello again peeps!!

I am just having a little relax on my settee with my laptop and thought I would share my little hanging basket I made for Adela's 3D challenge this week and the papertake weekly blogs creature comforts challenge  as I have had a bit of a morning ...............

Little mo wanted to take zakky to school so we got ready, got the dog in the car ( have to lift him in because he is old!) half way to school ( its 4 miles away) Little Mo pipes up with..
"EEEEEuuuwwwww mummy, it smells of roasted zakky poo in here"
to which mummy says...
"yes, its zakky's old doggy breath poppet"
to which Little Mo says...
" o-oh, no it isn't mummy, its a big zakky poo "

AAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!! thank goodness we have a totally old car and leather seats, the whiff was not pleasant though so Mo and I were the only people in a car with the windows wide open when it was tipping it down with rain! get home, clean car, cuppa......ahhhh all calm.
Then go out to print of some funky papers for a 3d challenge I like to have a go at, printer worked fine yesterday but today nope, luckily have dig in funky scrapbook, ( I keep all my funky scraps in one of those plastic folder thingies with lots of  plastic pages) have a sheet of double sided funkiness from a couple of weeks ago, use that,phew!! 

Then delivery man comes to deliver new printer,happy happy Lou, jumps up from chair in craft room....slips over Mo's twig (that needed putting near my door to keep me safe from aliens....?? ........bless him.....  ) and straight onto big butt!!!

Anyway........Heres a piccy of whats inside the hanging basket  ( .....which I may need to eat to make self feel better....)

So I am ever hopeful of a more peaceful and uneventful afternoon........ keep your fingers crossed for me please!!!!!!!

My spooky journal page!!

Kids and Teachers quotes , Spider web and heart that I think was a freebie once..
oh and a cute little mo....sadly he is not for sale...!! :)

Morning peeps!!!

Over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog we are having a special Tiddly Inks 2 week journalling challenge. I have really been trying hard getting to do a page a week at least in my new little art journal and on sunday Mo and I were pootling about mixing paint for fun, he had been doing it at school and wanted to show me how to make orange. It was so much fun!
So I 'borrowed' some of his orange before he used it all and got him to squeeze in some of my gold shimmery acrylic paint, oh wow!! he thought that was magic!!!
And I splodged it on my journal pages with great gusto!! Love a bit of mess!!!! Then I had to leave it to dry.....
And here's Batty doing her spooky thang in her spooky twisty tree wood!!!!
 And here is my super cute little Harry Potter on our doorstep last halloween (...please excuse the crackle glaze refusing to have its piccy taken over Mo, it looks lovely IRL but I just can't get a good piccy of it, grrrrrrrrr!!)We absolutely love halloween in our house and decorate outside the house every year. We go for a spooky walk and trick or treat with friends and then Mo spends the rest of the night looking out the window for trick or treaters to give sweets too, he loves it.
I love the little quote Christy popped in the kids and teachers quote pack and I just had to include it on the page. It is so true and just lovely.

My relationship with journal pages is getting a bit better now as I keep trying!! this one has also got my fav magnolia swirl stamp on it and an Ugly Bug spider web in black and clear embossing, oh I wish you could see the orange glimmery paint as well as I can while it is sat on the table here nest to me in the sunshine, it looks gorgeous!!!!!
Right must go and get a little man for school and then when I get back I am going to greet my ironing pile with a huge smile........as I wave at it when I walk past it to my craft room :) :) :) lol !!!!
