Rain stopped play-

yet again a planned day out was scuppered- it rained today- no trip to the hospital today - that was yesterday!

here's what i got up to

1. Shimelle's 4x6 photo love
Shimelle's up to 4 pictures on a page with her year long class on Two Peas- the fourth photo is hidden under the title- i used a card from american Crafts- but I had a few issues with size- the card was not 4x6 so i had to add add a section on the bottom- the background cardstock is european size 30x30 centimetres just a little smaller than 12x12- the photos therefore were just slightly to big- little bit of trimming and hey presto
2. stamping on a LO
A Two Peas challenge- I had this little strip saved to use on a LO of Nancy holding a handful of daisies- but then I lost the strip! Arggh- It turned up stuck to the bottom of my shoe a bit crumpled and worse for wear but it wasn't going to stop me using it
3. Design Dollies element- folding

I misted through an old chipboard shape I had onto patterned kraft card- the rosette is my folded element- four strips of paper folded round and then a button in the middle- i thought it looked a little like the sun
The Lo is called- the essence of summer- although it was taken last week!

Oh and so exciting- i won the challenge from Design Dollies last month- cool
4. Q and A
I made this Lo today while Arthur was at school - i wrote down the questions already to ask him when he got home- I got five answers out of him but he's refusing to answer the last two at the moment- I may get it finished if I keep on asking!
