CES Challenges - Anything Goes

Hello everyone I'm running really late today so will make this a quickie.
Today we have a new challenge over at CES Challenges & its one everybody loves.......
See told you have no excuse not to join us this week.
For mine I am showing you one of the cards I made for Ben & Megan for my grand-daughter, when Megan went into labour I coloured up 2 images, a girl & a boy as we didnt know what she was having. So here is the little baby girl..........

I've took a tip from my lovely bloggin friend Pops & used up a few scraps, I know 2 of the papers are 12x12 Magnolia papers but cant remember the names. All paper is matted onto Kraft card & all papers are edged with vintage photo distress ink.

6x6 Card Blank & Flowers are from Crafty Emma's Store

All other items are from my stash........some neglected stash lol.

The oh so beautiful image of course is 'Baby Girl' by Mo Manning, I soooooooo love Mo's babies!!!
Should of waited to colour her hair so I could do it dark but Ben had blonde hair when he was born & Megan has blonde hair so this is why I went this colour lol........she still looks lush tho doesnt she...

Of course inside is also done. Ooo I also splodged paint on the base paper I've just seen it there lol.
I would forget my heed if it was loose lol.

Well thats it from me but do pop over to see my fabulous teamies & look see what gorgeous creations they have made.
Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by I really appreciate each & every visit mmwah.
There are quite a few 'New Beginnings' challenges out there & my new beginning of course is becoming a grandma............& yes still floating on that cloud lol.........

This 1 is to show you a sneak peek into some of the gorgeous goodies the lovely Teresa will be having in her new store My Crafty Heart when it opens on 14th January, I did mean to colour up one of her gorgeous images but have not had time to finish it & this was coloured up already from days ago........

Now most of the ingredients on this card are indeedly from Teresa so keep a look out for her store as she is gonna have such yummy things in there.......think I may end up skint!!! lol

The beautiful papers are My Minds Eye 'Paris & Co', these are gorgeous!! The corner die is by Memory Box & its called 'Madera Corner'.....this will be getting used a lot I love it!! Layered all paper onto kraft & edged with vintage photo distress inks which Teresa will also be stocking.

The gingham ribbon is off a present Ben & Megan got for Payton-Lea so they gave me the ribbon off the packaging........I have them all trained lol. The ginham ribbon is off a shop on Ebay.
The flower in the centre is a MCH Resin Flower........these are gorgeous & come in many colours.

This is 'Sweetheart Birgitta' by CC Designs & I decided at christmas to start using my neglected images, images that are still waiting to be coloured, inked or printed out......... She was coloured with Copics but I cant remember the colours as I forgot write them down & it quite a few days ago when I coloured her!
There is another resin flower from My Crafty Heart

New baby piccies & a thank you

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I thought I would pop on & show a few piccies of my oh so gorgeous grand-daughter Payton Lea (pronounced Lee, its the sounding of the last 3 letters in Natalie's name as they wanted to name her after her. Well a princess should be named after another princess. In fact the 1st pic I will show you is of the 2 princesses together.

This was taken tonight when Natalie was in bed watching her tv..........Payton just stayed asleep she really does take after her daddy lol. Natalie kept smiling & totally loved having her there with her.......yes I cried it was just was like she really understood.

Here she is with my youngest son Jake, he thinks its sooooo cool being an uncle at 15 lol......

Here she is with her proud grandad........I was being camera shy so there's not 1 of me with her lol.

Finally here she is on her own, actually Jake is still holding her here. She is wearing her new suit that me & Craig brought her. I love these photo's, I think tho I may end up blinding her by the time she is 1 year old from all the flashing on the camera lol........cus I will be taking so many pics. Time goes by too quick & I want to capture as many moments as I can!!!

I also want to say a mahoosive THANK YOU to you all for all your wonderful comments about little Payton I really am so proud........I tell ya if I knew it felt this good being a grandma I would have done it first lol.
I'm so sorry I've only made it to a few blogs since she was born but I promise I will catch up with you all in the next 24 hours.

Huge squishy hugs to all......grab a hug each for visiting my blog xoxoxoxo

Isnt this so beautiful would you believe he brought it back in September cus the jewellery store had knocked £200 off it so he got it for £400............his plan tho was to propose on Christmas day, I didnt think he would last til then......he is so impatient he gets very excited lol.

For the card as you can see I didnt use an image instead I thought I would you know I dont know what word to use for this lol................

The sentiment is computer generated by moi but the frame is a digi image from Whimsy.
All flowers from Wild Craft Orchid & papers are Websters Pages. Ribbon, gems, feather & lace from my stash. Wooden heart from Crafts & Me & I painted it white.
The card blank is from Crafty Emma's.

Right now onto the bestest pic of all!!!!!!!!!!!

Meet 'Payton' my grand-daughter yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!
She was finally born at 6 o'clock this morning weighing in at a healthy 7lb 10oz. Mum & baby are doing fantastic. Isn't she just gorgeous. I will put better pics on later.
I soooooooooooo cant wait for some squishy hugs. Am going over to their house to get it tidied ready for the coming home........sshhh dont tell them tho lol. I'm also gonna cook them some meals for the next few days just so its 1 less thing worry about.

For You...............Happy New Year Everyone.........

Hello all my lovelies & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!
I tried my best to get round to everyone & I think I got half done then Megan went into labour.......unfortunately I went pick them back up from the hospital at 1 0'clock this morning (uk time) as its really slow labour & they said she could go home til the contractions get closer together & stronger. We have a little stubborn baby.........funny enough his dad was the same 21 years ago lol. Hopefully tho the baby will make his/her appearance today & we will start another year the best way you possibly can!!!

Anyway I came across some digi images the other day so brought a few & made 1 on a card so I thought I would post it on here today before the challenge ends................I sooooooooo love this image, pop on over to see the others.....

This is 'Agent Bubblegum Spying' from the Operation Treehouse range over at Little Miss Muffet store, they have soooooooo many lush digi's.......
Links are also on my sidebar to their challenge & store.

Punched holes, attached eyelets & then some string all from my neglected stash!!!!!!!!
I think this image is my fave as I think its perfect for all those Tomboy Girlz out there...........this was sooooo me when I was younger..........well still am some what lol.

This fabulous image was of course coloured with Copics, hold on I will go get the list of colours.....
Ok I'm back.......phew....I ran lol.

Papers are digi but I cant remember where yet as I printed them out over 6 months ago lol. My new years resolution is to use more of my neglected stash & resort & organise my craft room. So for the time being you will be just seeing digi's as my stamps are getting sorted which could take a while lol.

Well I'm off to link this up & then I've got Ben & Megan coming over as I'm cooking for them today.
Hopefully I will be a grandma is half way there so fingers crossed.
