Morning peeps!

Its time for a new challenge over on the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog and this week its been chosen by our gorgeous Shelly, its a fun one this week too!! Shelly has set us the theme of ....

Rags To Riches!!
so think of recycling bits and bobs to use on your creations.
Don’t forget, as always, to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers).
Our generous sponsor this week is Polkadoodles and they are offering one lucky winner a prize of 2 gorgeous digis – ‘Fredericka chic’ and ‘Fredericka debutante’.

So I just had to use my lovely supercute gorgeous new Time Flies stamp from LOTV for my make and of course, when I went to the shop to buy them on the birthday open day my stamps were put into this gorgeous little kraft LOTV bag! so that was what got recycled!!! along with a takeaway coffee cup wrap!! (piccies below of before I attacked them!!!).

Here's a closer piccy of my coloured image...
awwwww, isn't she just soooo cute!! she actually has a bit of sparkle on her dandelion clock but the disaster that is Lou taking a photo just couldn't capture it!

Then it was time to add some gorgeous papers and die cuts from the coffee cup wrapper to make my flowers and hearts and hey ho!! it was done!! Here is a piccy of my bag and coffee cup wrap looking rather less gorgeous than they do now (..yes, they did have a word with me about showing them without their make up on but I assured them they looked so much better now!!! he he he!!)

Right, I am off for a cuppa. I am still a squidge tired from yesterday's no sleep but oh my was sports day just magical!! Mo absolutely loved it and we absolutely loved being able to share it with him. If I could only put into words how awesome Mo's school is for you all I would be happy to..however it would be the longest blog post in the entire world!!!! Its not often you find a school that strives to make every single day your children are at school child centered and so much fun. Its sadly a dying tradition here in the UK as schools seem to be leaning more and more towards constant testing of those precious formative years in a childs life. I am super grateful that Mo's school are the way they are, which frankly reeps way more benefits in the childrens learning than any other school I have seen! The children have SAT's but those too are done in the most wonderful way. Can y'all tell I am soooo happy Mo is there?!!!

Right, kettle boiling! have a wonderful day everyone!
huge hugs Lou xxx
