CES Challenges DT Creation - Anything But A Card

Well good morning me lovelies how are you all? Well I'm a bad bad girl today I'm running mega late as I have a poorly daughter, I do have quite a few makes to show you but forgot to put them on my blog yesterday with her being poorly. So will put one of Krista's on laters for ya.
Anyway onto why I'm here & of course its time for CES Challenges & this week the theme is set by the lovely & sweet Shell & it is..........
ANYTHING BUT A CARD
I have used this to make my grand-daughter something. I coloured the image the day she was born after I saw her dark brown hair, this is how I imagine her in a year or 2 lol. Its for her bedroom.
WARNING PHOTO HEAVY
This stamp I've had since the release last year & she finally got inked up beginning of this year....I know shame on me cus how cute is she...................

Its a double frame thing I have painted a put a poem in this side & the image in the other.

The flower & seam binding holding the heart are from Crafty Emma's Store there is also a sale on so pop yourself over to grab a bargain!! 

This little cutie is 'Sweet Cheeks' by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD & its from the Peekers 2 range, I sooooo love those collections..............yeah I know even tho I've not inked them yet!!

This is the personal poem to my grand-daughter which I made up myself. I started doing poems after my nan died I did one for her funeral then it spiralled from there......before then I couldnt string 2 lines together lol. When my dad passed away I did a poem for his funeral & even stood up & read it out (very hard to do) but since then I've not done any. So this is my 1st one since then & I felt really proud that I was able to do this for her..........its something I'm hoping will be a forever kind of keepsake.

This is the finished project which I'm rather quite happy with. I wanted to keep it white cus then no matter what colour her bedroom it will go with it. Of course I added odd bits of pink.....well you have to dont you lol. I didnt add anything baby-ish tho as I want her to grow up with it.

Well thats it from me please pop over to see my DT buddies as their creations are gorgeous, they totally rock!!!
Thank you soooooooooo much for stopping by I loves ya all mmwah xoxoxoxo
Challenges I'm Entering...........

Vicky what a gorgeous keepsake you have made which will be treasured for many years to come. It’s perfect for our challenge. Thank you for taking part in the Crafty Purple Frog Challenge this fortnight and I wish you the best of luck in the draw. Best wishes, Kym (The Crafty Purple Frog Design Team Member) xxx PS I'm sorry that a card I made for doesn't seem to have got to you. I am very disappointed as I wanted to send you something special to celebrate the arrival of Payton-Lea. Sorry
