Easy Challenge this week

Ok - expecting hundreds of entries this week at Southern Girls - the only stipulation is FLOWERS. Use lots, use a few, but more than one is preferably..

I have also used an image from one of this weeks sponsors - Whimsy Stamps. The very bright butterfly (no subtlety in my colouring I'm afraid) is their daisy butterfly. Go check out what the girls have done with some of their other stamps and also form our other sponsor, The Paper Shelter (completely adorable digi stamps here)..

And if you like the crochet trim on my Lo (another very sweet photo of my nice Emma), come and visit me in a day or two as I am having a little give away (stay tuned for more of that later). I am using it on all my Lo's at the moment , completely obsessed by it. I picked it up, along with that fabulous crocheted flower, at out local fabric store, Addicted to Fabric. Who needs a specialty scrapbooking store close by?? (sigh, I would love that actually..).

And a quickish (although not as quick as I first anticipated of course!) digi Lo, for my friend Irini's challenge site, Get Creative. I have been so naughty not participating much yet but I love the work her and her very talented team has done. This week was a list challenge. Very simple, hard if you like adding lots of stuff , here's the list

1 pattern paper
1 card stock
1 strip of ribbon/lace
1 button or brad
1 die cut
1 title
1 picture

and my Lo. The happy/grumpy look is an institution in our house. The boys do it so well and it is guaranteed to get them out of a bad mood.

Isn't that typewriter (which is my digi version of a die cut in this list) cool? You can get it at Little Dreamer Designs but only for the next few days as they are closing down their store. Good news is that everything is half price. I have stocked up on a few kits, so cheap and I love their stuff. Will miss them, sigh again.

Ok back in a day or two for a special blog hop and a little give away.

Have a great day. xx
