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 grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Guest DT for Shopping Our Stash

Good Morning All

Welcome to my latest followers, I can't see that you have blogs for me to visit you but let me know if you do.
I hope you enjoy your crafty visits and get some inspiration.

I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Shopping Our Stash Challenge blog for the month of March.
What an honour.
It is a weekly challenge and  the first one is
All It's Cracked up to Be.
(Use Crackle Paint)
As I dont have any I used Crackle effect decoupage paper and I made this for a swap too and that theme was Alter a CD.

This is the Cd once I had covered it.

I used a vintage photo and cut it with a Nellie Snellen heart die.

Added lace and flowers and a lovely paper bow from another swap. 

I wanted to make it into something more than just a decorated CD
so I punched holes in the bottom of it with my Cropodial, attached some metal rings to hang a 
12 x 12 folded card from.

Folded it into 9 segments and matted some LOTV Timeless Victorian Papers onto each segment.
They can add a photo on each segment.

I decorated the front with flowers and plaited some narrow ribbon to tie around it to keep it closed when hung up.

I hope my swap partner likes it.
