About Me

My Photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to my new grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Something for the Boys

Good Morning All

As it is the 1st of the month, it is time for a new challenge at Ladybug Crafts and the theme is 'Something for the Boys'  or  'Use Dies'

I used this cute LOTV topper, I do love these, and it is pre coloured too.  Matted it onto brown and beige card,  inked the edges, and made it into an easel.  Added gems and sentiments, ribbon and cut a doily to edge the sides and top.
Hope you like it and will pop over to the challenge blog to have a go.
