Soooooo Excited.........come closer I will tell you........

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Its bitter cold up here in the North-East today, I reckon even the beach is frozen lol. I'm running late this morning we babysat Payton-Lea for the 1st time last night while her daddy took Megan out for a meal.........they missed her so much while they were away bless em but she was as good as gold, a little angel. However my darling angel Natalie who I think could be the devil in disguise was a little bugger all night so we were rather tired this morning which is why I'm late!!!!!!!!

Anyway onto the exciting news!! Now what do we crafters nearly as much as the crafting itself????? SHOPPING!!!!!!!!!!! Yes we have a fabulous new online shop opened its cyber doors today & you gotta go in have a peek she sells fabulous stuff & I've not even seen it all!!! She also draws digi images as well.............Teresa is sooooooooo talented so pop yourself over to My Crafty Heart also pop on over to her blog as she is celebrating her opening day by giving you wonderful crafters a free digi image, yes a FREEBIE!!!!!!!!!!
Ok I will show you now what I have made with the yummy things Teresa stocks I ve also used 1 of her digi images as well which I lurve!!

I have made 'All Boxed Up' its a template I brought ages ago from Papertrey their templates!!
I dont make new years resolutions as then I dont dissapoint myself when I break them which I always do lol. However I am making myself use neglected crafty things & I have a ton of templates from various places which sit on my lappy.

This is the inside which you can use to store what ever you want.

I have just put some envelopes in one side...........

.......& some cards in the other. These would make lovely gifts to people.

You can tie it all closed to keep everything safe.

Card, lined paper, feather & paper flower from my stash.
Everything else from My Crafty Heart see list of ingredients below.

The gorgeous image is 'Fairy Vicky' the fabulous Teresa drew images for all the DT girls & this is moi. Dont you just love my hair lol........oops I forgot colour my lil jester....:0(
The hair I coloured to reflect mine at the mo which is black with a slight tint of cosmic blue, & I mean slight! I am going back to my natural colour next week lol.
On this creations I used :- My Minds Eye 'Lost & Found Blush'(love this pad) Memory Box 'Modern Landscape' die (gonna be one of my faves, love it) Pink & Black gingham ribbon, crochet flower from Prima 'Love Note Collection- Botanical', Hero Art gems, Stardust stickles on her wings & My Crafty Heart resin flower.
All ingredients used can be found here at My Crafty Heart 

Thought I would leave you will 1 last pic if you are still here lol. Our little grand-daughter at her nanna & grandads last night. We brought her a chair for when she is here so they dont have to carry loads of stuff over & she loves it, especially the vibrate part it sends her straight to sleep as you can see lol.
We are lucky tbh as we see her every day so I get to have LOTS of snuggles lol.

Well thats it from me sorry for the long post sweeties I'm off to do some shopping at the fabby new store, my dosh is burning a huge hole in my pocket here lol & then we are off to my sons to fix his gate, darn winds!! I will catch up with you all later peeps.
Take care & thank you a billion times for stopping by loves ya all xoxoxo
