YAY! Hoildays are here!

Huge Hello Everyone!

OMG! seriously i'm super excited about the Hoildays!!
i've got to get some bunny ears to help me go hopping crazy over my hoildays!...lol
as well as get some sweet photos of the boys!
any way! got to get right into the creative side of things today,
i'm super excited to have convinced one of my friends to do some flower for my blog sale,
try as she may, many many times to teach me to crochet it just ends in tears and wine...lol
so she thought it just may be easier for her just to make them for me...lol
she is a total darling and i loe her to bits for letting me add these sweet little
 creations to my yummy eye candy line up!
here are a few of them with a few flowers i made today

also got to thank my partner justin for painting this canvs rainbow for me too!
he did try to do a little stiching for me and just couldn't ...lol
he says it's just too girly..lol
anyways with this lovely bright canvas i'll make some yummy flowers and buttons!!
felt sun is going to part of a whimsical/rainbow kit :)
cause i honestly think that
Felt + Flowers+Fimo =FUN!...lol
we'll see :P

Also very stoked to get a couple of challenges don too!
got on too the Get Picky's sketch this month??

How joy is this sketch! you just have to give it a go!

I used some lovely photos from MArch when Sara (justin's sister) came
 to visit with her lovely little bubba girl! how sweet is her out fit!
love the red with poka dots!
using the echo park just for the record collection! 
so yummy!
the background pp is from Making memories
there is those lovely bottle caps again!...lol
can't wait to see whom is going to buy some of these little vintage numbers :)

Next i wanted to try out Anna Craft cupboard monthly sketch

Kept this one fairly simple as i just want the photos to tell the story :P
using the Cosmic Cricket on the road collection.

Oh almost forgot to show you what i came up with on the weekend from Scrap therapy!
Deb was saying a great way to use up your little scraps was to create a background
from the little cut offs...find details here
so with her example in mind i set off to use up some of my scraps from the welcome home collection
from Teresa Collins

I thought i would take this one step more and use up some more scraps
and make a cover for a cheap exercise book
just added a load of zigzag stiching ...not bad, if i do say so my self...lol
can you tell i have a thing about rainbow?!...lol

got to love scraps! lol
well chickie babes! it's the first week of the Holidays and i hope you all enjoy your kid lids and find some time to be creative even if it's just creating a mess with the kids! :D
Have fun!
p.s. thank you all for your lovely comments! i'll be popping around your blogs
 soon to see what you all have been up too you creative butterflies you :)
