Weaving dreams with Butterflies

I bought this beautiful Dreamweaver stencil at my recent trip to Ally Pally.   I used Dreamweaver embossing paste and loads of blingy glitter.

Ella-Bella is 4

Now my bestest mate Paula is a Nar-Nee to little Ella (Bella) - of course, she's much older than me 'cause I'm far to young to be a Nar-Nee to anyone! Ella (Bella) lives in Norfolk and has a lovely accent - hence the "Nar-Nee" (Nanny). Last year when Ella (Bella) was still a baby (at 3) I had to do an Angelina "Ballermina" card but this year when we're a big girl her card had to be something a little more fitting to a nearly-Princess....

The papers I used were Imaginisce Fairest of Them All - Be Back by Midnight, some pale green Bazzill, Fiskars ribbon border punch, pink organza ribbon, Quickutz Label, Flourish and Roxy alphabet - all from CUL. The "E" is a chipboard letter covered in the Imaginisce paper.

Oh What a Joy (now that it's finished....)

I love this now it's finished - took me a while I can tell you! The design is by Valerie Stangle and the 'distructions' appear on the scor-pal website. I used Bazzil bling for the base card, SU papers and ribbon - the peel offs were ones I'd had in the box for yonks - to be honest they were a bit naff (very thin) - won't mention where they came from but I bought them off the TV..... I chalked the white card to make it a little less harsh and coloured the peel-offs with my Sakura pens. Now I've made the first one, the next will be easier, but am I the only one that finds the distructions not very clear??????????

.... and yes I know I mean instructions- just got close to self-distructing a few times....

My baby's birthday....

My baby is 14 tomorrow.... my baby is taller than me.... I'm sad.... Where has all that time gone? Doesn't seem like yesterday that I was blowing bubbles on that freshly bathed round little tummy...

Now I'm left with a hollow legged, nearly 6ft, Kevin (mmm experience tells me that is NOT a good thing....) duh??? So yesterday at Balcombe Belles I made his cards.
