Morning all, this is my first creation for the Crafty Boots Challenge blog as a member of their design team. I am really excited to be apart of this crafty family and have been made to feel very welcome already by everyone.

This tag was created using some of my favourite products from Dylusions. The base colour is the Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise ink spray and all the colouring is done with promarkers. 
The leaves are from the 'further around the edge' stamp set.

The heads of the girls are from 'Doolally Dorris' and their bodies are from 'Ruby Rainbow'
The toadstools are also from 'Doolally Dorris'.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Mini scrapbook

I had so much fun making this little keepsake for my daughter. I got the idea from a Kanban scrapbooking show on create and craft and took it from there.
It started with a piece of 12x12 palin blue card stock. I folded it into 4 and cut away one of the squares to give me my basic shape. I then set too and decorated it.
All the papers are from the Portobello rd collection in 6x6 from papermania.

The bunting and sail away words are cut from the front cover of the kit given to us by Kanban on the cruise. The gems are from my stash and the pic features my daughter with Leonie and Nigel from Create and craft.

Here is Natalya with Dawn from Kanban and Sarah from Beaders Companion.
Open up again and here is Debbi Moore.
Also pics of Natalya in Amsterdam and Hamburg.

Here is the back. Is the right way round but for some reason it wont go onto the post the right way round!!! Computers appear to do what they want sometimes, lol.

Have to say i am loving this weather and thought i would share a couple of views from near me. I too these while out on my daily walk yesterday.

This was taken as i crossed the golf course, not that i play golf, lol.

I hope that wherever you are, you are having lovely weather too.

Thanks for looking. Take care.

Here is my work desk today. Rather different to last weeks neat and tidy. Today it looks like a bomb dropped on it, lol.
As can see the promarkers are out in force today and have been for a couple of days.
Have to say i am loving the new summer colours, fab for my journal book.
The Dylusions stamps are still out (havent actually put them away yet since i got them), love love love working with these. I can not draw at all but these make it look like i can.
This is the journalling page i am working on at the minute. Not sure yet what writing to put in the space - any ideas will be greatly recieved.
This is the small scrapbook i have made for my daughter from when we went on the create and craft cruise. Will blog better pics during the week.

Thanks for looking and Happy WOYWW.

Well my desk is rather tidy today, had a messy session yesterday so i had to tidy up a bit.
This is a card i made the other day for a friends birthday, though its not finished yet. Cheeky dylusions stamps sneaking into the pic there too.
Here's a better look at them.
Some of my messy day still on desk. Got another wash tablet box to alter, this one for my daughter to store her promarkers in. She just started to collect them.
Ha ha look what just climbed into my chair while i was taking pic's. A very very cheeky monkey shouting "Cheese Mimi".

For those who were asking after the crafting cruise i went on, it was with create and craft and some of the pics are now on my blog with others going on hopefully tomorrow, please take a look.

Happy WOYWW and have a great day whatever you maybe doing.
