First ever DT creation!!

Hi everyone!

Hows everyone doing? Today is a special post as I am soooo pleased to announce that I am now part of the Forever Friends Challenge Fortnightly Design Team!! Woop woop!

I am sooo pleased and grateful to be given the chance to be on this fantastic design team. So onto my DT duties lol. This fortnights challenge is

                                              "Anything but a card"

Now I must admit this scared me slightly but when I was tidying I came across some little photo album notebooks that I bought ages and ages ago and have never got round to using. So thought Id give making a little front cover a go and here it is...

I have used one of the Forever Friends Easter stamps and coloured him in with my Promarkers. The backing paper is from my all time favourite craft company for paper - Doodlebug.

Every year on Easter Sunday our family have an egg hunt. It is hilarious lol. My Mam, Gran and Aunt buy over 300 little chocolate eggs and hide them around my Auntie's back garden. Then me, my sister, my boyfriend, my cousin and my two step brothers spend most of the afternoon running around looking for them! Its hilarious watching us all act like kids again considering I'm 22 and my boyfriend is 28 and sister is 19! We always take loads of photos so Ill be putting them all in here and will show you when its full!

I do hope you can join in with us this fortnight and be in with the chance of winning a fab prize from I am Roses!

Must dash but must also say a big thanks for keeping your fingers crossed for me the other day as placement was better towards the end of the week and R.E was really good! One week left till the Easter hols and I cant wait for a lie in lol.

Speak soooooon!

  1. Love this Rach- it's a great idea!! Think I'll have to get my mum to keep an eye out for some of these mini albums when she's shopping- I'm a scardey cat when it comes to scrapbooking but I might be brave enough to try something as little and cute as this!!lol Look forward to seeing the pics after the event, too- sounds like you have a lot of fun!! :)
    Colouring's great too, btw!! :)
