These are buttons that I used for bubbles. I managed to pull the loops off the backs with pliers.
I really enjoyed getting the stamps out for this one. Whenever I do stamp, I always think that I should do it more often. I just seems like an effort each time.
For my glitter I used some shimmer sand that I sprinkled into the gesso.
And the LO is about how Louis will still happily pose for me. Hollie these days is a very reluctant model.
We had a lovely weekend. We split yesterday afternoon. The boys played on the wii and Hollie and I made flowers (Hollie's request)

And this is what Hollie made. Naturally Twilight had to get in there. This is her first obsession. As sweet as it is, I'm getting very bored of it coming into every conversation. Now I know how my Mum must have felt about Wham when I was the same age.
