A little bit of sunshine

....on a fairly gloomy day! That's what this layout makes me think of! the sky is grey but the day isn't with my lovely Emma- although she's at school today and Andrew is at home with a pal. so I've snuck in a quick post before I serve up lunch! Have fun with your day xx

Thought I'd share a bright little number to match the bright weather outside! An oldie in the cupboard- made several month's back. It's based on the Ting Tings song of the same title. We are very fond of pet names in our house- but at one point Emma wasn't! You could call her anything but Emma! " That's not my name!" she'd pout! So that's how the title came about- and the black strips across the page? ingenious! Black bin bags! I'm not convinced it archival safe- but they look all punky and fun so who care's! I have the photo on file and this page was all about fun! hope you like!! Lx

I set myself a challenge

....the other week. How many different ways to use a ribbon on a layout. I managed 3 techniques, my favourite being mummifying chip board letters! They didn't match and were quite big so I wrapped them up and tie knots here and there- and it turned out quite cute I think! Keep and eye on my side bar as I'm going to be adding links to all my extremely talented DT mates from it's a creative world! the blog is now posting a regular piece of inspiration- daily!
