The Trifecta

It's getting towards the end of the month and that means the Dollies Trifecta is up. The colours are mid blue, mid pink, white and brown but you only have to use three of these, Karen's sketch which can be seen here and using folds on your creation for the elements.

This is my mother's day Lo. I received a pile of books (yay, I love books more than even craft..) and a couple were bought using Matt's hard earned money. he may or may not have wanted these books himself but we have some overlapping tastes in fantasy and humour so that's OK (I have been known to buy him books that I have wanted to read..). The Jon Stewart book is one of the funniest I have read in quite some time. I laughed out loud on just about ever page, most excellent. A very good stash for mother's day.

And I have finally gotten around to the latest Crafty Croppers challenge, a sketch -

I didn't go the circle, mine are always a bit non circular, but like the result.

Every time I look at the photos from this day I laugh. We honestly did not notice all the big people were wearing red -
- until we looked at the photos that night. And Meaghan's t shirt is actually pink so I guess that is why it wasn't that obvious. Thanks goodness Henry was in white, otherwise we would have been a nice matchy family...

Ok time to pop over to The Dollies site and have a go at the trifecta, some very yummy prizes up for grabs. Next week, May being a very long month, we will have a special Dollies Challenge with some very cool prizes up for grabs, more of that next week.

have a very fun day. xx

I love what you did with the Trifecta this month, and lucky you for getting all those books. I'm an avid reader too, though these days I tend to use the library a lot more than buying. I have been known to hang out at second hand book fairs though ;)
