Long time, no see.... Pick of the Bunch

Hello, hello, hello. I have been away from blog land for a while, busy with family stuff and work, so not much crafting going on here. Serious withdrawal symptoms now!

Anyhoo, long post coming now, get a cuppa...

This time on Anything Goes Challenge Blog, our theme is 'Pick of the Bunch'. This is my kind of challenge! Flowers, flowers and more flowers, lovely!!

I have used a Edwin with some lovely prima flowers and craftwork card base. I have made a twisted easel card, so I hope that makes up for me missing the last challenge which was 'easel card/more than one fold'! I have coloured him with distress inks and added some glossy accents.

Here are a few scrapbook pages I have done over the past month while I have been a bit awol.

Last night's Craft Den SB class - This is Emma being a fairy princess - she is having a run of enjoying dressing up at the moment - doesn't she look cute. I have used some lovely Best Creations papers, velvet ribbon and pearl bling in at Craft Den.

Another dress up page - doesn't Emma look absolutely FAB as a pirate!! Love it! Check out the pose with her hands on her hips. My favourite is her lovely bare tootsies! These papers are a mixture of 7Gypsies which were perfect for these photos. I have also cut out hearts and flowers from scraps of Sandylion papers, added glossy accents and some great brassy, plastic buttons from my huge button box. They were made for this page with the ships on them. Who would have worn them on their clothes I am not so sure about though.....
Over at Scrap Our Stash, the theme last month was Red,White and Blue. I have made a LO of Emma wearing a red nose for Comic Relief. She is posing as usual. I have used a mixture of MME Stella and Rose and Cosmic Cricket papers and some freebie trims and embellies I won as part of a kit recently. August theme will start on Monday so look out and join in, it's a fab challenge blog if you are like me and REALLY need to use up the stash which is taking over the house!!
I think that's enough for now. I hope to get back into crafting and blogging next week and start visiting everyone's lovely blogs again.

Have a great weekend! Kx
