Lights, camera, Patterned paper

Good morning
We have a fun challenge for you this week at

 this week our lovely sponsor is 

what do we want you to do?
Use patterned Paper
 
Yes it's that simple. So get digging and grab all those off-cuts, or your favourite back ground paper or mix-it-up a bit.

Here is my inspiration for this weeks challenge

This adorable image is "Little Anna" from Lia Stamps. I dug through my stash and found these two patterned papers. Also thanks to Doncaster Crafting Live show I had this lovely lilac coloured card.

But I will share my Doncaster adventures in a few days. I can say I met a lovely lady who had recently retired and was new to crafting, so I told her to pop over to the Fab'n'Funky blog for inspiration and of course to ask for advice.

Please pop along and check out the lovely DT creations and leave them a little happiness.

Hugs

Where has 2017 gone???

I'm not afraid to say I think I must have been in a deep sleep because I have no idea how it is July 2017 already!
I am almost certain my youngest daughter only started senior school 5 minutes ago and yet here she is off to her prom
And yes by all accounts that wing was heavy. This is her Hatsune Miku outfit (a japanese vocaloid...I find it easier to smile and agree, otherwise my head hurts....lol)

We are very proud but more so for finding the courage to go to the prom, she suffers from agoraphobia, so going to the prom was a big thing. The fact that she managed to stay for just over an hour is a true acheivement.
It didn't help that someone who was supposed to be a friend told her she was an embarrasment.
But our eldest daughter and her husband, when I told them what happened at the prom started a Facebook appreciation of her, and she got dozens of supportive comments and likes.

BUT when did she get to Prom age.....?????

Last weekend my husband & I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary.....Yes 25 years! How did that happen....lol
I made him a card that I felt represented us and our life together
I got quite brave and stamped the image onto mottled background paper then created a silver underlayer.
"Marriage is a journey and I am so proud to have you as my travel companion"

......yeah yeah I know it's a little bit cheesy but hey......one of us has to be 😁

Here is my lovely man & I at our anniversary dinner

Well, I'm off to bed now.....desparately hoping no-one fast forwards the world again, otherwise I'm never going to catch up

Hugs
Buffy xx
