Crocheted Cushion

Don't think I showed you the crocheted cushion I made so thought I should! I started making these granny square as a blanket for myself but as I was making my nephew blanket at the same time I got a bit bored of making squares so it turned into a cushion cover instead!! I love these pretty spring colours!
For the back I started with a granny square and just kept on going until it was bigger enough to cover the back!
I put some lovely big buttons on to keep the opening closed.
And as it's Halloween I thought I would leave you with a photo my creepy cupcakes!! 
Happy Halloween, have a spooky evening!!!
Back Soon! xx

A Sketch and a Cake!

There is a new sketch up over at The Studio today, it's another great one too! I kept quite close to it I just swapped the hearts with circles!
I still have printer problems I battled with it this week and now I think I will have to get a new one, I can't complain really the amount it has printed! Luckily I found this photo that I had already printed out and it had to be scrapped! Another cute photo of my nephew, he loved pretending to be a doctor so was given a doctors kit with everything in, we all had to be his patients and he wouldn't take this doctors coat off!!

Last weekends fair I did went really well and here's is the cake I made for last weekend too, the formula 1 car! Or should I say a Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, I know this car quite well now, it's this years model too! I must admit this was tricky, the wheels were a nightmare as the cake was so soft and the icing didn't want to stay on!

It was sat on a cake too, I decorated that as the checked flag! Want do you think? Did I pull it off?!!

 Back soon! xx

Family Fun

Today at The Studio is all about creating a layout about family. For the past few years it has become a tradition for all our family to go on a family picnic so I had to scrap about that seeing as I hadn't got around to scrapping last years yet!
Last year we went to Longleat Safari Park, we had a great time seeing all the animals and then had our picnic, we all take something different to share with everyone so we end up with a great spread! Of course I'm always responsible for the sweet treats!!

I used some lovely October Afternoon, Cake Walk papers and notice my new Studio Calico little people, how cute are they! Go and check a look at the inspiration from The Studio design team and we are also joined by some of the Teresa Collins DT this month and you can win a great prize from Teresa Collins too!

I've got a busy week ahead getting ready for a fair and making a special cake for next weekend!
Back Soon! xx
