Easel Wedding Card

Haven't had much time for crafting this week what with getting Benn ready and off for his school trip. He has gone on a rock climbing, caving, canoeing, team building trip to a place called Longrigg up near Kendal. He was really excited about it and I know he will have a great time, even though the weather has been so awful. I am not sure if he will be able to do all the activities as they do seem to be having flood alerts but I am sure it will be great fun still. As all Mums know though, I am missing him like crazy especially as he arrives home on Friday evening as I leave for Malta Friday lunchtime.
I apologise now if I go awol for a while as I have so much still to do getting my packing done along with making sure the boys are set up for while I am away as I can picture it now when it gets to Monday morning and a school tie is missing or something, and I haven't for the life of me any idea on this scheduling lark that other bloggers seem to be good at.
I was asked to make a wedding card so I thought I would use this gorgeous Cute Daisy May image and make an easel card as they are just so cute and really easy to make. The gorgeous image can be found on sheet 74 here. The next card was for a friend who has just had her first baby, and as you can see I have used another Daisy May image which is here.
I do hope that this weather improves for you all while I am away.

Cute Daisy May - Wild Thing

This week over at Cute Daisy May Linnie wanted us to go wild and use a cute animal image. Here is my card which I think fitted the bill even though she is more tame I feel than wild which made me think she would look so sweet on a baby card, she can be found on Sheet 61
I am also entering this card into Crafty Catz challenge where they wanted to see dots on your card.

The papers I have used are all from DCWV Nana's Nursery, ribbon from my stash and I have also used my Martha Stewart Valentine Heart.

We would love to see you come and play along this week, and don't forget, you dont have to use a CDM image Hope to see you again soon.

Winter Wonderland for By the Cute & Girly

Just thought I would share with you my scrapbook page that I did for Winter Wonderland over at By the Cute and Girly. This photo was Benn when he was 5 and first saw snow. He was so funny that day, he woke up and wanted to go out in it straight away. I had trouble getting him even to have breakfast and by the time I got him in again it was gone 5 oclock that night. He wouldn't come in for lunch or anything and I was only able to pop back into the kitchen (it looks out into the close) to make the odd cup of coffee to take out but that was all.
It certainly brought back lots of happy memories.
