A Creative Romance ~ Wings & Things

Happy Friday everyone

It's time for another fab challenge over at A Creative Romance,
What a huge response for the Die cut challenge,
As you all know. . .  I just LOVE dies!

Anyway, I'm pretty sure that this weeks challenge will prove just as popular.


I was lucky enough to win the full set of Alby's debut release of digi images,
So I thought this challenge was the perfect opportunity to try one out.

I have used a sentiment from the extremely popular 
LOTV ~ Simply Sophisticated clear set.

All other products are listed at the bottom of this post.

Hope you all have a fab weekend, I'll be back soon with my MDUC post.

Some Exciting news to share

Happy Thursday everyone, I hope you are all having a good week.

This morning we popped up to have a look at the high school, up until now Mac really wasn't too fussed about going there, (you need to pass your 11+ to be considered)
We had looked around a couple of schools out of town, 
one of which Mac had set her heart on, but now she loves the high, 
so we need to keep our fingers crossed that she passes. 
I'm so excited,
I recently had an email from Mary at The Ribbon Girl
asking me if I'd like to join their awesome DT. 
Well, what an absolute honour. . . 
 of course I said YES!!!
The Ribbon Girls will now be holding a "Lovely Lili" Challenge 
Every second Sunday of each month beginning October 13th!  
Have a look here for more details!!!
 Thank you so much for popping by,
don't forget to enter my cansdy,
I've popped a few more little bits in the bag too.

Red Squirrels Christmas Tree

Good evening, 
Hope you all had a fab weekend.

I went to Ally Pally yesterday,
and I was a good girl and didn't spend too much.

It was lovely to meet, and catch up with some of the crafty ladies and to finally 
get to see Debbie colouring at the Magnolia stand. I adore the way she colours her images.
I did treat myself to a couple of new maggies.

I have an LOTV Christmas card to share tonight.
