Baby Fairy bee Pre- coloured...

Afternoon all!!

I'm sneaking into my blog (as I always do on a Sunday because I make my Dream Team project and then I just cannot sit on the cuteness until tomorrow!!!) with my Dream Team post. I simply could not resist a good explore those gorgeous new pre-coloured images.

Oh, my giddy gumdrops these images are just the bee's knees...Hence I just had to choose  Baby Fairy B . People the cuteness and ease of use on these is unreal.

I printed mine on hammered white cardstock, using the Matte Photo setting and a print choice of High. It came out so beautifully. 

The only thing left to do was for me to faff about Lou style making a super fun card base for it to live on. I LOVE it!! I popped each layer up on some foam to make a super sweet little decreasing window effect going right back to that lil cutie bee, tooooo cute right?????

I've been putting on the brave girl Sunday pants as much as I can today. Yesterday we picked up some of Dad's ashes from my little sister who travelled home to Seychelles to spend some time with our Mum and even littler sister. I have sent some away for a special ring for me to wear always and Mo has bought himself a necklace that you can pop some ashes in. I have a little amount left in my pot which I have put into my craft room with me and whilst I was out there today I decided that I would make a little heart shape with them.

Well now, you'd think this an easy task wouldn't you??....errrrrr...nope!! My Dad would have laughed his socks off at me trying to make his ashes into a heart shape!! oh my!! First, a little bit went out of the line of the shape I wanted for the heart and dopey here thought she would just gently blow it out the Lou!!! that obviously didn't work!! so I tried to gently nudge it back into the shape but bugger me!! the ashes are kind of static and they jump towards your finger! So I'm crying by this stage...I cried...yup...real tears...and gently wondering to myself which parts of Dad I am gently nudging around my little piece of wood trying to align into a beautiful heart shape! I get it the way I want it, get my phone ready on the camera, take the photo....and a deep breath because I have been crying and whoosh the whole effect again!! oh my!!! but it's so pretty and I am definitely going to try and do it again using some glossy accents to hold the ashes safe from clumsy Lou's!!!

My Unamum sent us all some pennies to buy ourselves a beautiful ashes ring to wear. Mo has bought himself a beautiful little cross necklace that holds ashes with some pennies Grandma sent in Dad's wallet that she sent for Mo. That was such a special surprise for him and he absolutely loved it. The magic of social media meant that he could send her a letter right away when we got home.

The picture on the inside of the wallet is the one Dad kept of us all on the day they left home in England to go and live in Seychelles. It's so special.

Right, that's enough Lou waffling on at you to last you for today I think!! I'll leave you in peace for a couple of days! lol!! Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx
