I made a box, image is SC coloured with promarkers, cardstock is Gemstones, flowers and most all else from stash..Oh and lots of glamour dust on her wings and frills of her underslip...


These boxes are so easy to make, depending on how big you wish the finished box to be....anyway, fold a piece of cardstock,lengthways, in half, this one measures 28cms long by 12cms wide, then fold at  13 and 15, this will make the shape....with me so far...ok..now you need to decide if you want to cut a shape out for the image and slide it in when stuck or place the imag…

Right then, enough of my waffling lets get on with the challenge this week at CraftyCatz...ourfabulous teamie Diannewants us to use PASTELS thisweek...mmmmm, TWO DAYS I was searching for something that I would refer to as pastel colours.....I actually had a mental block...how bad is that.....in the end I resorted to good ole Gingham and strips from stash..lol....then it took me another age to find some kind of Mojo......told you it was away with the Fairies.....anyway, in the end I made a Recipe holder, it can hang around wherever it fancies as long as it's not here, ever secretly hoped that someone would walk in and say can I have that please....and your sooo glad it's off your mind...one…

Happy Fathers Day Alfie....

Well as most will know we have been celebrating Fathers Day here in the UK today, I noticed a few blogs with pictures of there beloved Fathers, no longer with us, which I always find so sad, especially since I don't have mine either...Well this year I am sharing him with you, he was such a wonderful Dad, and he deserves to be remembered....he passed away along time ago now, but he will always be loved by his family, so, Alfie Boy, Happy Fathers Day, I still love you as much as ever, and I still think those glasses make you look like an owl.....( they were once quite in fashion...for those wondering...lol...)
  I hope you all had a lovely day, enjoy...
Hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

OK, well I made this for the lovely AuntySue's Birthday last week, I have done no crafting at all and got in a real fluster when starting this..lol...I think she liked it...instead of the usual card I send her, I did a make-over on a frame...as you can see in the pictures, it was all pretty simple and as usual I did my panick....OMG I don't know what to do....lol...
