Anything Goes Challenge #44 'The Letter D'

Hello, here we are again with another Anything Goes challenge. I am sorry I have been awol for a while, just caught up in family life and getting my new laptop. I still don't have my 3G card to logon away from my desk and my office has been unbearable in this hot weather, so I have neglected blogger for a while. I have realised that I didn't even share the last challenge, 'Here Comes Summer.' Oops.....slapped wrists, will do better this month! There are so many lovely entries, I am trying to get round as many as possible to have a lovely nosy.

This fortnight the challenge theme is 'The Letter D'.

'D' is for Doll

I have done a SB page of Emma showing off her lovely make up job on her Ariel Doll head. I just love the spaced look to her smile on these photos! She looks very funny, but very proud of her work, bless! Isn't she so cute! I am biased I know. I could eat her! Isn't that a funny saying I wonder if that is just an English thing to say, that we would love to eat our children when they are cute!!
Please come and visit and join in the fun! You will also have the chance to enter our call for the Guest Design Team member every month.

BTW, here is my entry for last challenge, 'Here comes the Summer'! It's Emma during our holiday in Scotland in May, she was blowing kisses everytime she swung up to me while we were at the wild animal sanctuary in Kirkudbright. It was a lovely day, she has her sun hat on and a taste of things to come! It's very hot, but I am soooo hoping the weather stays like this until September! I dont mind if it rains in the night to water the garden lol.

Couple o' layouts

Oh what fun it seems to have been for everyone on blogger these last few weeks!! I can finally leave some comments today so I have been having a look at our MASKING entries on the Anything Goes Challenge Blog, some lovely ideas! I'll have to get round to my fellow crafting buddies soon while the going is good, lol!

I wanted to post a couple of layouts I made last week. I got thrown a curved ball at Craft Den SB class last week, we were using Bo Bunny Blast Off papers! But... I have a little girl, I only do girly layouts, where am I going to put the flowers!!!!!!!

After the initial panic I realised I had the perfect photos, with really bright primary colours which would go fab with the papers and I swapped flowers for stars! I still managed to get a bit of bling on there as well. The photos are Dan and Emma during our first family holiday away when she was 9 months old. She is delighted that he is down on the floor with her! I just love looking at those little hands clapping and those teeny weeny trainers she has on. I still have those trainers. Actually I still have a LOT of Emma's things, sentimental mummy, lol.

The other LO I made with some yummy SEI papers Lynne has in at Craft Den. Aren't those flowers just yummy with the doodled edges round them? Just a simple LO this time with a frame of flowers on a Bazzill embossed cardstock, just slightly inked around with a versa magic ink pad. Emma and Grandma are having fun in the sand a couple of years ago.
