It is sponsored by Tessa's lovely Esty shop Precocious Paper, there are 20 stops along the way and Tessa is also giving away $100.00 in product so make sure you join in! You can start the hop at Tessa blog here.
Tessa kindly sent me some of the lovely products from her shop to create with, I was given the pretty felt flowers and sweet spots, here's the layout I made with them.
How pretty do Tessa's flowers look?!
I stamped around the corners of the cardstock with a swirl stamp to make the cardstock pretty too!.
There are lots of other lovely embellishments from Precocious Paper so make sure you look at all the other items in the shop, you are bound to find something you like!

It's official I caught the bug for Crochet, I'm loving it!! Here's a post just for my crochet! I must show you my finished baby blanket, I finished it about a couple of months ago now and I just given it to my cousin and their new baby and they really LOVED it!! I went to visit them the other day and he had it around him the whole time!!
Here it is, you may want to put your sunglasses on!
This is Rowan's in greens and blues, I'm keeping all the outside squares in the same green so hopefully it will all blend together and then you'll just see pops of colour in the middles! (The colours aren't very good in these photos as it's so dull here today!)
Attic 24 blog.
That is what is keeping me busy in the evenings as the nights are now getting longer!
Back soon with a special Blog Hop! xx

A couple of layouts to share today. First up is Sketch 262 from Scrapbook Challenges. I loved the sketch so kept quite close to it. I haven't used strips of patterned paper down the sides of layouts much and really wanted to so this was the perfect opportunity! It love how it looks, you got to love these Crate Paper Papers anyway, haven't you?!!
The Second one is for Sunday's challenge at The Studio. We were challenged to scrap about what we were excited about so I scrapped about my Sister and Brother-in-law moving to Bristol, after about 3 years of trying to move they are finally moving! I can't wait to have them closer to home!
I went for a bit of a experimental style with this one, it's one of those layouts that doesn't photograph that well but you get the idea!
Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back with a crochet update soon! xx

Today is my little nephew 3rd Birthday, Happy Birthday Rowan! I was asked to make lots pf pirate cakes for his Birthday. The first lot were pirate cupcakes for his party with all his little friends.
These cakes have certainly kept me busy this week!
I had a lovely time at his party today, luckily the weather was gorgeous so it was a garden party and barbecue which was lovely!
Thanks for stopping by, back with some layouts soon! xx

Just popped in to show you a quick layout I made for the first weekly sketch of August on Scrapbook Challenges. You can see sketch 260 here.
I've wanted to use this 'under construction' ribbon and scrap these photos for ages so it's feels good to finally create a layout using both!
I've had a lovely afternoon with my nephew, we were very busy, playing, we went to the park and he got in his paddling pool! It's his Birthday next week so I have lots of cakes to make for it next week!
Have a good weekend
Thanks for stopping by! xx
