Hello, hello lovely blog readers.  It's Monday again and time for a little show and tell.

Today, my first page for Stick It Down goes live and I am really excited about this as I love sketch challenges. 

 For this page I used  Silhouette cut files for the corner and snowflakes and cut them from some sparkly white card, which I also used for the title.  It was a fairly simple page but I love the finished article. 

Also this week I joined in with the Week 2 Challenge on Mind The Scrap, (I am so glad I came across these lovely scrapbooking kits and the lovely Emma who runs the business)which was to scraplift a page by Suse Fish.  I must admit I hadn't heard of her before but after watching her YouTube videos am a fan.

and another one using the MTS kit but focusing on using the little cards that came with it. 

The First Scraplift Challenge of the year went live on the ATDML blog on Friday and I chose to scraplift this layout from the December Gallery by Ann.  The December Gallery can be found on the ATDML shop website on the right under the Information Section. 

Ann LO5 - Joy (Mint Wishes)

I took inspiration from the photo in the letter O, the overlapping title and the horizontal stripes. 

My offering for the Silhouette DOTW, this week, was to use the 'Snow Cute' cut file as a scrapbook title and add the gorgeous stag from Nic Squirrell .  

Finally, well done you if you have got this far, I have my Woodland Blanket news.  I have crocheted 15 stripes of colour but really, really don't like it.  The colours are too random for my OCD to accept so have decided to unravel it (this is called frogging -  I am assured by Antonia that this is because ou go 'rip it, rip it, rip it :0) ) and use all the greens at the bottom going into the oranges in the middle and then to the blues and gray.  I had this idea when walking with David and Kiera, in the woods, yesterday - to me that would look more like an autumn woodland. 

Hope you all have a splendid week and I may see you again later on this week - depends on how I feel - see I am so laid back I just don't care!

Reasons to be cheerful:

1. Gracia and Josh should complete on their house on Thursday and they have already put their name down for a puppy - I will be a fur grandma soon!

2. Loving my three day week giving me a 4 day weekend to play to my little heart's content.

3. Going to relaunch Kitty-Boo Designs and get some new items onto the website.
