My Crafty Heart Goodiness & A New Family Addition

Hello all my lovely jubbly friends how are you all? Loooooooook I have my laptop back yayyyyyy me unfortunately because its a Sony Vaio it has to go back to Sony to be fixed PC World wont do it so away to Sony it went & I got it back lifeline is right back next to me lol.
Anyway as I've been without a laptop on my good days I did sort out my craft room, my goodness it needed it I'm slightly over-run with rubber stamps but what I did find is a fab little machine that hubster brought last year for me...........sssshhhhh dont tell I've finally made something with it.......
Yes I came across my pink Zutter so thought I would finally make a book, this one is for my sketches as sometimes I draw them & then they get transferred to my laptop (when I remember lol). I kept it pretty simple & instead of an image I used 1 of my fave things which is a butterfly.

This gorgeous flower is Prima Miss Godiva-Mermaid..........soooooooooooooo pretty!!!

The butterfly I used a Marainne die that I had for soooooo long & cant remember where I got it. However to get a prettier looking butterly then head on over to MCH & get 2 dies, Tristan butterfly & the
Chloe Butterfly, these 2 dies compliment each other beautifully.

I used MME Lost & Found-Breeze papers & inked the edges with vintage photo.

Now would you like to see our new family addition?........go on then I will show you.
This little lady belongs to me & Natalie as her fur is better for Natalie's chest, I'm sure Natalie thinks of her as her personal live teddy bear lol.

This is Bella, yes after Bella in Twilight..........I need a boy now to call him Ed lol. She is now 9 weeks old & is a Shih-tzu & is just soooooooooo cute. She was born on the jubilee & her pedigree name is Queen Elizabeth which I think is cool :0)

Her fur is just so soft & could pop in your pocket she is so small & cute lol.

Well a long post, so sorry peeps, but thank you soooooooooooooo much for popping by. Before I go I need to let you know about all the yummy goodiness that Teresa has over at My Crafty Heart OMG you gotta go see it all...........I'm off shopping there soon lol.
Well I will say tatty bye & I will be round to see you all soonies. mmwah squishy hugs to you all

EDITED TO ADD............. Please go check this post out its for a very worthy cause & there are 2 fabulous free digi images on offer ;0)

P.S. Thanks for you lovely comments about my truck, I love it soooooooo much & tbh I drive more like a man lol, do you know The Stig off Top Gear.......well I'm Stigette lol. Where water can get I can get, there are times if its tight hubby will get me to park it or drive it through lol............its the one thing I'm extremely confident about is my driving............when I was little I wanted to go in the army to drive tanks lol.

I love your book Vicky! I have a tonne of stamps too far far too many (and have got more for my birthday oops) as for your pup she is so so cute! I would have loved to have named my Siberian after a Twilight character but my hubby wouldn't have it! As it was though her mums pedigree name was breaking dawn princess hence why I had to have her! Glad to know your lappy is all back now hugs Rebekah xx
