Before I tell you about this week's Simon Says Challenge can I just shout from the rooftops that MY BABY IS HOME ! Yes, Ski arrived home from Brownie camp yesterday lunchtime, very tired but excited and full of stories about her time away. She had a fantastic time and was only a tiny bit homesick. I am so pleased to have her back. I've had a very empty feeling for the last 5 days and as soon as I saw her yesterday walk off the coach it all disappeared.
Anyway, enough of my gushing !
This week on Simon Says Challenge the challenge is ANYTHING BUT A CARD !
Yes, we want to see what you can come up with that isn't a card so it can be a box, tag, layout, bookmark, notebook, photo album, journal, altered tin or other item. There, that's a few ideas to get the juices flowing.
I decided to go for a bookmark as I have a book ready and waiting to be read when we go on our hols. Whether it will actually get read is another question but the willingness is there !!!
I tried to be artistic this time in my photo taking ! but just in case you can't see the bookmark very well, here is a larger, close up piccie. If you need to see even more detail you can click on the piccie itself and it can be humonguous !!!!
The DP's are Making Memories "Chloe's Closet".
Tilda is from last year's Summer Stamp Club and she has been coloured with Promarkers.
Colours : Hair - mustard, sandstone and cinnamon. skin - ivory, blush and Copic E01. Top - Lemon and primrose. Jeans - cornflower and china blue. Socks - pastel beige, sandstone and blender pen.
The button and orange ribbons came from my lovely friend Judy when I won her blog candy a little while back.
The green ribbon is from my stash.
The jute is from the greenhouse !
The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on which can be bought in the Simon Says Stamp store.
Don't forget there is a $25 shopping spree in Simon Says Stamp up for grabs and some of the DT (including myself !) are offering blog candy so go and find the rest now you have found mine !
I hope you all have a great day. I am going to be spending the day cuddling my babies - it feel like I have a newborn in the house again and yes, I am the soppiest Mummy around !!
Thank you for your visit and for any comments you leave - they mean the World !
Hugs to you all,
