As promised ............

.......... some knitting!
Here are the two cardi's I've made for Charlotte & Olivia this past week while spending time out of my craftroom!

And here's some updated photo's of the grandbabies - Charlotte has changed soooo much in just the past 12 days!

Thanx so much for visiting, I'll see you soon!

Long time no see - again!! LOL

..... I do have a good reason though, DS & his family are home from Germany & I've been catching up on cuddles & kisses from our new granddaughter charlotte Mae & her big sister Olivia!

I did some layouts with the May kit from Sarah's Cards using Fancypants Roadshow - here's what I did .........

OK, I'm off to watch 'The million pound drop' ........... love it!!
I'll be back later to show you my lastest knitting project!

And more ...................

........ I had to do this post in two so if you want to take a peek at the other pages I've uploaded then please scroll down a bit to the next post!

Using October Afternoon (Edited to correct manufacturer!!) Fly a Kite again for this page of DS & Olivia out for a stroll last summer - I distressed the papers cos' I love this technique & the papers look so nice this way, must be the colours & the thickness that make me do it!! LOL

I've used some 3D foam to raise up the flowers so they stand out a bit more!

OK, that done I'm off to do a bit of a tidy up in my craftroom - it gets so messy so quick!!

Thanx for popping in & PLEASE leave a comment, I love reading them!

See you soon!

Layouts .............

....... here are a few of the pages I've done over the past couple of weeks!!

This first one is Olivia sitting on the stars reading (well as a 2 year old can! LOL)
I love her little feet & how her toes are curled up!
I used my present favourite - October Afternoon Fly a Kite, the colours are gorgeous & fruity!
As you can see in the close up I've used some Diamond Glaze over the little cut out accents and added a row of Birds on a wire with my Martha Stewart punch.


This next one is miss Olivia again with my reading specs on :) I love this photo of her so much so that it's also in a frame in our lounge, when I look at it it makes me giggle! Some Basic Grey was used for this - I haven't used a lot of the recent ranges from Basic Grey & I don't know why - maybe I'm going off it OR it's just too nice to cut into???


I've used a different method to upload these pics & am struggling a bit so it looks like I'll have to make two posts tonight!!

See you in a bit!! LOL

Crocheted shoes for Charlotte ...................

.......... my back hasn't been very good AGAIN!! this past few days so my hands have been busy making these pretty little shoes for our new DGD Charlotte

{I got the pattern from HERE there's some cute stuff so I can see Charlotte wearing matching shoes for every outfit she has!! LOL}

- who by the way we get to meet for the very first time at the weekend!! Whooohooo! I can't wait to give her the 2 months (almost) worth of cuddles & kisses that I've missed!!!! And to do the same to DGD Olivia who I've missed so much more than words can say!!

I've done a bit of scrapping but can't show you some of it just yet cos' it's DT stuff & others I just haven't photographed!!

Hope everyone is OK & not getting as much rain as we've had over the past week - where did that lovely sunshine go to??

Right thats me for now, will definately be back soon with some photo's of the grandbabies - after cuddles of corse! LOL
