What a fab weekend.....anyone else got the Monday blues now?!
Well there's nowt like a bit of creativity to perk up your soul, so why not hop on over to Sarah's Cards and check out this month's challenge, which went live yesterday?
All you have to do is create something based on this sketch....a card, a layout, or anything else you feel inspired to make, then link us up to your creation and you could be in the running to win a £20 e-voucher to spend online in the shop whoop whoop!
Speaking of the blog, I've been beavering away over the last week ready for my next Design Team post due on the 15th.....here's a sneak peak of what I created until then.......
Mr T and I had a great weekend...we hadn't had some proper time to ourselves in ages, so packed ourselves off (with an impressive picnic) to the Swansea Airshow.
I must admit when I first went a few years ago I was a little unimpressed by thought at spending an afternoon staring at boring planes..but this is no ordinary "in a field" show....and my opinion was soon changed whilst sat next to the shimmering Swansea Bay and looking over to Mumbles, and the fact that the aircraft come so low and close to the shoreline that the beach literally vibrates as they do their breath taking dare devil spinning through the air thang! Nicky hadn't been before so I was excited to drag him off, saying it was part of his initiation of becoming a proper "Swansea Boy" now that he lives here!
The afternoon did leave me with a huge dilemma though..............
When I grow up, do I want to become an awesome wind-in-yer-face Wing Walker?
I also felt I had the necessary particulars to apply to join the RAF Parachute regiment.....but a girl's got to narrow her options down from time to time. ;)
We finished off our day sunburnt and in Mecca Bingo of all places!! But we didn't come close to winning a penny! Mr T is awesome and we had a fab day, just the two of us :)
With the bedroom furniture renovations coming to a close, we needed a new up-cycling project to keep us off the streets, and I've been on about creating a photo wall for sometime. So we headed off to a car boot sale yesterday, and gathered a nice little collection of ornate frames to give a new lease of life to.
Here's the booty we scored, laid out in how we envisage the wall placement to be, it's seven foot long and I had to stand on a chair to fit it in to the pic!:
We looked carefully (read RUMMAGED) for frames which had decorative or unique little details and texture:
So the idea is we will unify the frames by painting them all one colour to match the room - a nice olivey green. Except I bought the wrong colour paint (damn those misleading colour charts) so we are busy using it as a base and adding loads of different acrylic paint colours to try and make it more olive and less luminous green! Eeeek!
All fun and games eh?! Hope you all had an equally enjoyable weekend. Thanks for stopping by, will catch you all soon xxx
