It's sunday again so that means my next challenge is up at The Studio! This week's challenge is 'for those who fancy creating something a little different! I don't know about you, but I'm always on the lookout for inventive and pretty ways to store crafty items. Your challenge this week is to alter or create from scratch a pretty storage item for your craft space'.

We are very kindly being sponsored by the lovely Cosmo this month so we had Cosmo goodies to play with, I love the DeLovely papers as they are so bright and cheerful!
I had this boring pen pot on my desk for a while now and it really needed brightening up!

This is what I did to it!
I painted the edges of the pot in bright pink and then covered it with some delovely and then I used a border punch to put a border around the top and cut lots of flowers and some leafy bits out of other sheet of delovely and stuck them on both sides.
It really does brighten up my desk now!
Another thing I had to catch up with was this.
The lovely Tessa sent me this lovely award. Thank you Tessa and thank you for all the advise you gave me about opening my shop it was great!

You have to list 5 things you love at the moment so here's mine:
1. I love the fact I have opened my own shop and have had orders!
2. Making cakes and trying out new icing techniques out!
3. Spending time with my nephew as he's now got such a little cartacter and makes me laugh!
4. Caramel, yummy!
5. all my lovely cyber friends who have been really surportive and left me lovely comments! I love comments!

These are the 5 people I'm sending this little bit of sunshine on to:
I will be back soon with some layouts that I haven't got around to showing you yet!
Have a good Sunday! xx
