The Studio - Lift Chain Blog Hop

Welcome to the next step of The Studio, Lift Chain blog hop! You should  have come here from The Studio's blog
Here's my lift of Amanda's layout:

I love Amanda's layout so I found it really inspiring. I didn't go too far off it, there is lots of great details in her layout that I had to include in mine, like the doodling and stitching. I really love the finished result! The feel to the layout went perfectly with a photo from my cousins wedding. 

We would love you to lift any of the layouts along the way, please link up your creations at the side bar of The Studio blog for a chance to win a great prize from chipboard company Tando 

Please hop on to Chantelle's blog for her lift of my layout.
Happy hopping!

Baby Blanket and Canvas

There has been two new additions to our family recently, two little boys within 3 1/2 weeks of each other, making me an aunty to 3 boys now!!
So as you can imagine it's been a bit busy with the babies and creating for them too! 
Thought it was about time I showed you some of the creations so I will start with a couple of things I made for my sisters baby.

First up is the crocheted baby buggy blanket I made for my sisters baby, we didn't know if it was a boy or girl so went with either colours!

My sister chose the colours and pattern, I loved this stitch, it was quick and easy and looks great!
I started it in February and just finished it a few days before my nephew arrived in the second week of April.

 Secondly my sister bought some fun material with dogs all over it for the nursery so I decided to copy it to make a canvas to go on the wall, as the walls are all white so this is what I came up with!
I drew the dogs on card as they are quite big on the material and I needed to fit more on and then I painted their coats on!

Back soon with more! xx

Giant Chair

Sunday's challenge at The Studio was all about stitching, use either hand or machine stitching on your layout. I like hand stitching on my layouts, but it can be a bit time consuming so I don't do it that often. For this layout I hand stitched two big circles in two different coloured threads and them built my layout on top of them.
The photo is of my nephew stood on a giant chair we found!

This month's sponsor is the chipboard company Tando, if you enter either of the the challenges by the end of the month, you could win a lovely prize from them!

Back soon! Xx
