Starting the week with a new recipe

To start with, I want to tell you about the latest challenge at Butterfly Crafts.
We've been given a recipe to play with:
Here are your scrappy ingredients of which you need to use at least 3:

Yellow
Red
Bee's
Buttons
Brown
Glitter
Pearls
Banner
Ink
Stamping
Any Nikki Sivils product *

Don't forget to link to the gallery for the chance to win a fab prize of Nikki Sivils goodies, this months sponsor.

Here's what I came up with.
Another Florida photo.



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)
We set up a production line. Die cutters and punches on one desk, all the fabrics and papers came out and sewing was done on another desk.
It was so much fun and we listened to the Sunday charts at the same time : )
I like our grown up time now she's that bit older.

Here's what I made:



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.



I've now finished my bedroom canvases and they are up. I'll get them photographed and blogged tomorrow.

Oh I LOVE those flowers...! Very cute...! And the layout is great...! :)

I see what you mean about Twilight, only that in our house it comes from Linus and right now it's all about Star Wars. In every sentence, more or less. In the middle of any conversation he'll suddenly switch the subject and say something about Darth or Yoda. =) Cute, but annoying.

And when you mentioned Wham I started wondering what my first obsession was. I need to think about that!
