Happy Handmade Monday everyone, hope all had a great weekend and enjoyed your Mother's Day. I was lucky enough to be very spoiled and got lots of lovely crafty stash and a charm for my bracelet. I also got treated to breakfast and dinner out, so I didn't have to go near the oven or the sink!! (What Joy!!)
I've been trying to concentrate on doing more layouts as that is what I really love to do. My daughter and I visited a lambing farm on Saturday and for the first time in my life I actually saw 2 lambs being born. it was wonderful to watch although the first lamb looked as if it might have been still born (which I really didn't want to see as my first experience) - it was not until the shepherd picked it up by it's back legs and swung it upside down a few times that it took it's first breath (pheww!!! - everyone cheered). That then prompted me to do a double page layout of Spring has Sprung. I also did a page of my daughter and her friends - I wanted it to look quite messy so used accrylic paints and flicked black ink onto the page. I'm quite pleased at the way it came out!
Just a note - FFFF has been postponed for a short while - life got in the way, and I realised I need a bit more time figuring out exactly how to link everything up etc. Sounds lame, but I know what I mean!!! I feel a bit of a fraud but it WILL happen!
Don't forget to check out Wendy's blog http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog/ and see what everyone else has been up to this Monday.
Bye for now x
