PDD Tuesday / Crafty Angels


This is the second week of the kids being in school and finally we are settling nicely into a routine. It's sure quiet without my little Princess here, but she's LOVING being in school. We took the decision to send her to 3 weeks of Summer Camp (with her brother) which was held at her pre-school in July and it was definitely the best thing we could have done. She got to know teachers while having her brother there for reassurance and she's totally at ease with being in school now.  

Of course I had envisioned having those precious hours to myself, to be creative without 'help', but it's been so quiet that I've had to be out of the house until I collect her from pre-school, then I come home to work on my cards with her 'help', lol. 

This is my little Princess on her first day @ school.

(she was trying to run away from the camera!!)

OK, enough of the rambling on... On to today's card. Today is Pez-A-Doodle Tuesday and I've also made my card for my Crafty Angels DT, which was a sketch set by Laura. 

In my Crafty Angels kit there was the uuuuuuuuuber cute Magnolia Monkey and sentiment and the gorgeous Blue Awning papers. I coloured my image and also shaded the background using distress inks.

The pearl brads are from PM and they are one of my favourite embellies. I also totally love Skittles and Pez-A-Blings!! The Halloween mix of Pez-A-Blings and Spider Skittles are available right now and would look fantastic on all of your Halloween projects!! Check them out before they are gone!!
Happy Crafting!!

Hi Sandie, your little princess looks pretty pleased with herself there and nothing like the cheeky monkey on your card. Both great pieces!! Take care
