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 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

Photo Inspiration - Ribbon

Good Morning All
Saturday is Allsorts Challenge time again and the theme has been set by Tracy and she has put up a photo (shown below) as inspiration for us all.  It is very multi coloured so I think the world is your oyster here.  I chose to use ribbon as one of the sponsors is Crafty Ribbons.  This plaiting technique is shown here by Christina and I think it looks beautiful and makes a nice change from bows, you do need quite abit of ribbon but well worth it for the effect it gives.  The papers are from Hot Off The Press and they were a freebie on a magazine ages and ages ago, but look lovely with this chocolate coloured ribbon.   I,m sure the flower is a Tim Holtz die that I borrowed from John Next Door ages ago and it has been in my scrappy box waiting to be used.

       There are two sponsors this week Crafty Ribbons will give a  
                                                                      selection of gorgeous ribbons
                                                          And the other is Digi Stamps Boutique   will give 6 images.
