Sorry for my little break, but I have lots if good excuses I can assure you!

Firstly we had a week away in Cornwall over Easter, and then we moved house, so Mr T and I now have a new pad of our own - complete with a spot that I can call a craft room whoop! ;)

It's only today that our landline and Internet have been installed so normal blogging will resume shortly I promise, I have the latest Sarah's Cards kit creations to share as soon as I upload the photos :)

Until then I'll leave you with a super quick page I created way back last November using Lilac House from Fancy Pants. I'm sharing it now as these two " sweet" little darlings had their very first sleep over at our new house last weekend - and kept us up verrrrrry late and awoke us extremely early the following morning too lol, so it seems apt to share it with you now:

The "Garden Gate" paper from Fancy Pants Lilac House collection is an ideal solution for a scrapping fix when you're short on time, as I found that the lovely frame pattern was perfect for creating an almost instant page. I simply popped a picture over the pinwheel frame design on the paper, cut the "sweet" label from the Cards paper for my title, and embellished simply with some adhesive pearls, a heart and star from the elements stickers, and a small hand stamped strip with my journalling. Simple and quick, but effective!



I'm also working on a new crochet baby blanket for a friend of a friend; it's completely different to anything I've done before as I've only ever done crochet in the round, but it was an easy pattern to pick up and it's coming along slowly but surely. My granny squares are on the back burner at the mo until this gift is done, and then I have my sights on a couple of soft wave ripple throws for our sofas like my very clever buddy Gertie has done here, if I can manage to source a pattern that I can actually understand!!

Thanks for popping by, as always :) xxx
