A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Easter Kids

Hey all - I'm back again!  Just had a load of fun hunting for eggs with George - I think we found them all ...... or maybe we'll come across the odd stray one in a few months' time lol.  That pesky rabbit finds every nook and cranny to hide them in ;)

Hope you're having a fabulous day so far and, to top it off, we have a new challenge at Challenges 4 Everybody and, as always, it's Anything Goes!  Our sponsor for this next fortnight is the fabulous Bugaboo and here's my creation using their fantastic digi Easter Kids.

*Warning* - You may need your sunnies on for this post as it's a tad bright!

Hee hee! Well, I said it was bright!! How fabulous is this image! I had so much fun colouring it up and playing about with Word to merge my sentiment.  I practically used all of the colours of the rainbow ...... and why not, I say?

Usually, I choose my backing papers and then colour up to match - this time I coloured first (as I couldn't wait) and then fished around for papers to match.  I was chuffed to bits when I came across my old DCWV paper stack - how lucky was that!  I've had them for years and had completely forgotten about them .... until now! I made the banner at the top by cutting along the harlequin design paper and attaching with 3d foam and popped a little pearl in the centre of each 'flag'.

Here's a little close up - not sure if you can tell or not but I added Snowtex to a few of the little one's outfits to kinda give it a cuddly, fleecy effect - not overly confident it worked, but I'm sure you get where I'm coming from :)  

As if the card needed brightening up anymore, I decided to use every colour under the sun with my flowers too hee hee!  I added my gorgeous flat backed pearls and beautiful glittery bow - all from my stash - and voila!  An egg filled, flowery feast!

Anyway, I'm gonna hop off now for a little while but would love for you to hop on over to place your entries into the challenge - we would love to see what you create this time!
