Creativity and Plans.

I had a burst of creativity last night... I did this for a challenge over at All My Memories... The sketch is super adaptable and fabby...! Have a go too!

I used some of the SoML kit and then some snowflakes (cut by Marion and her circuit experssion *wub*) The chipboard snowman needs some doodling I have decided and will add this afto and post new piccie later. He looks too bare. The glitter used on the LO is strange, it's rather like fine glass and looks really like snow. And I used some of my *new* stamps on the little scalloped spot (although my inking leaves alot to be desired!) I love them, they are going to be so versatile.

Yum, yum Sweetwater paper! My only fault is that it is paper, rather than a cardstock weight. But I love it all the same. I have one 'special' live out loud piece and I know cutting it will bring me nearly to tears... but I have promised myself NOT to save anything now. Use it because next week/month it'll be a new something else thats my fave. I have so many saved 'favourite' papers which aren't my fave any more (and I will never use).

Prancer thickers which have to be my least fave font but with coloured dots look so different and it was super simply and quick too.

Ooooooh Ki lace cardstock is delish. Although I did doodle all over it, well I used it as a guide to scrawl coloured pen all over...

I never realised when I took this that Emily was stood right in front of a weird red wall... It kinda clashed so badly with her face and her blue vest was showing :) So I guess I tried to make the most of it by adding more colour to the whole thing. And everyone loves rainbow colours!

I had plans for tonight. They involved scrap chatter and 'me' time. Plans never go to plan though...

Lisa called at ten am this morning and asked me if I would work tonight, no begged me to work tonight as Jane was sick. How could I not?? I had already turned down working on Wednesday and I kinda wished I hadn't now :) Because with working tonight means I will not put the kiddo's to bed for three whole nights. And i'm telling you the whole putting Emily to bed atm is SO funny. She has these two Charlie and Lola bath mitts, except she uses them as puppets. So at bedtime and during her story (which is always Charlie and Lola) we have to actually act the whole thing out with these bath mitts. She knows every word of every Charlie and Lola book she owns... So for three nights I will miss being Charlie :(
