Hi to all, hope life is treating you well. I've had a little spend this morning at LOTV as they're celebrating their 10th birthday with 20% discount offer, many thanks my pennies have been spent now and I look forward to receiving my goodies and having a play with them. So onto my pop-up box which I made myself...so easy. I've got 2 members of my family who are teachers now, one was already and one is a NQT (newly qualified teacher) at the tender age of only 22....I'm so overjoyed that I had to make a couple of these to celebrate their good news. Both will go a long way and have the potential to be outstanding teachers! So happy for them!!!

Girly image is a digi from Krista's Saturated Canary called 'Alice', digi paper from CB magazine d/load by Jenny Ellory, backpack is a win from the cupcake inspirations blog some time ago and from Robyns Fetish, colouring with Promarkers and plenty of sentimental stamping going on, lilac ribbon bow and a gem to finish. The other make I'll show in another post.


Onto the many challenges I've missed and some new ones found... Papertake, Allsorts, Stamping Sensations, Crafty Sentiments, Challenges 4 Everybody, Paper Pretties, fab n Funky, Simon Says, Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned paper, Pink Gem 'pink/lavendar', The Stamping Chef, My Mums craft Shop, Crafty Creations, Nutcrafter 'girly, ribbon, Monotone', Glitter n Sparkle, Dream valley, Craft My life and Wedodoobadoo. Thankyou for your lovely comments, I'll try to get back soon.
