Now enough of my ramblings, I want to share a wee 18th Birthday Box I was asked to make for a "bird lover" Daughter. I was unsure how to go about making this but once I seen the Basic Grey papers I knew a lovely bright colourful box was the way to go

Winged things xx

Afternoon all

Well what a fabulous few days we've had away in the "minion" (caravan) enjoying the beautiful weather and heat while relaxing and enjoy some nice long country walks in Loch Ken




The site we stayed at was so quiet and picturesque, with stunning scenery all around! The walks were rather hilly for me but we still enjoyed them, finding some geocaches and making a few of our own! For those who don't know what I'm talking about check out here, tho shhhhhhhh don't let the muggles know heeee

Now onto the Challenge this time over at Dream Valley Challenges, with another easy theme Things with Wings! Nothing beats that theme for me, one of my all time favourites!



I made the card a few weeks ago as an order for someone who didn't want their Granddaughter to feel left out when the new Baby was born! Plus she loved fairies and purple so what else could I use but this stunning wee Some Odd Girl Rainbow Fairy coloured with promakers

I would like to enter the following Challenges

Well I'm off to unpack and get my washes done while we have the perfect washing day weather!
Till next time

Some Odd 60th xx

Well good afternoon everyone

Is it snowing where you are?? We have a small blizzard on as I type but we've been lucky that not much is lying! To be truthful, I'm not so happy! I want to be our building snowmen lol yeah yeah "big kid" right here heeee! At least I'm warm and cosy sitting here typing

Today I wanted to share this little 60th Exploding Box I made for a Special Lady! 


The information I was given when making this last week was that she liked Lemon colours, so with that I searched through my yummy paper stash and found this 12x12 Doodlebug paper


Having had a small splurge in the Some Odd Girl Digi shop (ok a large one) I decided these images suited the box well with the Spring colours making them pop



Aren't they just stunning images, no wonder I had to buy them ekkkk






I struggled with the flowers to match the centre as I ran out of lemon Mulberry flowers. After playing about I thought these pink ones with green tones roses matched in OK and then added little light gold roses to bring some yellow to the posy. And of course some butterflies to finish

What do you think? I loved making this wee box and it give me lots of enjoyment colouring and matching everything together!
