I'm off to sit in the sun and read the final book of the Twilight series - I just couldn't resist the hype about them...
PS Don't forget to check out the latest challenge at Poppicrafts! Its all about using skinny/ thin ribbon and you could earn yourself £20 vouchers - just think of all the dragonfly wings that would make...Dragonfly template: MissTiina (at Funky Playground Designs)

This was my result:
You Are a Chocolate Bunny
A traditionalist, you secretly want to dress up like a bunny. And not just on Easter.
Do go and have a peek even if you favour paper and glue to the digital world - there is so much to see, try and take inspiration from. Take from it only what you want and then simply enjoy the community spirit. I dare you :)

I have some really great news to share with you: I have been asked to join the design team for a new online digiscrapping publication! ...excuse me while I do a quick happy dance again!!
The publication is brand spanking new, and if you have access to a PC (hello!) and you like seeing the latest papers & designs, enjoy freebies, love competitions & challenges then I recommend taking a look at:

Finally, this is the mini gift I made for my Mum for Easter. The coaster is from YellowMoon.org - which if you have children is well worth a look at. They sell some wonderful crafty things, educational tools and games and even party bag gifts, and a percentage of your purchase goes to your child's school/ nursery too. Hooray!
Finally, if you have a go at making a mini basket (and I do recommend it 'cos they're very cute), they can carry a remarkable number of Cadbury's Mini Eggs. Alas however, they do not take a full packet - especially if you put shredded pink tissue paper into the basket simply because it looks pretty - and you will be obliged (!) to put the last few out of their misery and eat them. You have been warned...

All blooms, ribbon and the pretty flower clip: Poppicrafts
Alterable coaster and tissue paper: Yellow Moon
Plus Dovecraft chalks, craft wire, Ranger Stickles glitter glue, DMC threads, raffia, Diamond Glaze and the pink sweeties were from M&S! My Easter tree was from the late and sadly missed 'The Pier'.

Unfortunately, the Weeds & Wildflowers 2nd anniversary sale ends today - but do check their blog for some really lovely quick pages they're giving away to celebrate.
On the other hand, starting yesterday, the Sweet Shoppe designers are simply killing me at the moment with their Gone, Gone, Gone sale for this week only - 50% off, and then some of my favourites vanish forever! How could they do this to my credit card?? ;)
In the meantime, I 'made' this digital Easter postcard to print, add our own messages and post to friends and family for Easter. I used a free quick page, altered the sentiment, added Alex's picture et voila!
The digital world can make life so easy sometimes when you need to do things in large numbers and quickly! ...they're great for thankyou's too.
'til the 7th
