Craft Fayre xxx

***Beware this post could be long!***

Hi everyone

So everything is almost back to normal, nearly! I guess I'm only so so in the normal sense hee! Not as tired as i was yesterday although voice was almost gone last night seems fine today! The craft fayre went brilliantly only came home with 2 boxes from 30 and some cards and loads of orders hee!

Here is some of the pictures of my wee stand below

Hubby made all my fab display units, including the card stand! Wanted it to look like a picture frame and hubby is so clever hee! I made the wee jewellery "tree" all by myself with hubby's help. He cut the block and I stock it all together. Believe it or not the covers on my table are duvet sheets hee!


Here's some of the boxes close up. and below my wee stand on the corner like a wee step!



The baby boxes were the 1st to the go! Then all the Wedding ones but with it being "Wedding" and "Baby" season its not surprising!! hee

This is my wee "Temping Tree"
OK, so the name came from Big Brother but I think it suited it really well! Everyone loved the sweetie jewels especially the kids!!


And just a wee close up of some of the bits! the strawberries and cupcakes were the most popular! But my fave well apart from the strawberries was the chocolate cake, yum yum hee!
So hopefully I'll get time to get the craft room back to normal,foam back snow every where hee! catch up on here and relax! Never been so exhausted in one week sense like last year hee!
Oh I did end up buying some lovely goodies myself! I got some of the best smelling candles ever and some knitted peas in a pod for only 60p! The best bargain ever, peas for 60p hee!
Okay so gotta catch up with the ironing and maybe mite even change the curtains in the living room ........... well we'll see hee! Take care everyone
Hugs

Sarah Hurley's Challnge 1 xxx


Hi everyone, its the first challenge over on the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog and we have a colour theme to follow this week! As I don't have her fab disks yet i went with trying to match the colours for a wee scrap layout!


OK, so its not quite matching but it was rather hard for me! I had none of the colours to match so went for as close as I could!
I used my tealish blue 12x12 card with some K&Co papers to bring more of the blue tone out and added the wee pics of me and hubby having a yummy ice cream at Anstruther in March this year! The sky was gorjuss walking around, but the fish and chips were better hee!

Hope you can join us this week for our 1st challenge and win a special "Sarah Hurley" prize!! And don't worry you don't need to have her Cd's to entry although she would love that, just follow the colour challenge!!
I'll be back with my fayre picture soon!
Hugs

Purple Wedding Box xxx

Evening lovely bloggers, hope your all well and not having this dreadful weather? Whats it like??? Its pouring, rivers running down the road and thunder and lighting!! Where's the summer went?

Well sorry I haven't been around for a few days, so busy getting my stuff ready for the fayre next Saturday! I had a bit of a disaster, 15 yes 15 of my poor boxes got totally squashed and are beyond repair! I stupidly stuck another box on top of my box then stuck a pile of scrapbooks on top, how stupid can one lil person be! I saved some of the bits off them but a totally waste of card! So I'm making as many as I can!
Anyhows, the Lovely Dawn asked me to make this wee box for her friend that got married this week!


Ingredients:
12x12 Ivory card - Papermill
Purple texture card - Hobbycraft
mirror card - Papermania
image - woodware
flowers - Wild Orchid craft
loads of glitter

everything else form stash





So what you think? I think they are all getting very similar are is it just the colour? I've been making purple invites for 3 Weddings this year and maybe that's why it feels same same?? Hmm not sure?

Cant wait to hear your thoughts, thanks for popping by!

Ingredents:
Card stock - Papermill
Paper - local art shop
Lace - Hobbycraft

How cute is Maggie, I so love this stamp!!
Hope you like the wee card?? Do you think it'll be okay?? I've posted it to my wee Granny to give to my Aunts neighbour as she'll be there this weekend and also to get my lovely wee Granny's opinion!! She's my BIGGEST fan hee!
I used the sketch from The Sugar Bowl for the Maggie page and the sketch from Cardpatterns for the Canada page!
