A Bit of a Banner Thing going on

Hi all, wow sorry my blog has been a bit neglected of late but that doesn't mean i haven't been crafting.
So here is a couple of things i have been working on over the last few weeks. Incidentally when i looked at them they happened to have banners on them hence the title.
This LO was inspired by Rebecca Keppel and i think i used Echo Park -A Walk in the park papers.So bright and fun and because i like a bit of texture on my LO's a hand drawn and sewn flower.
Next up i did make my god son an eighteenth card welded together on the Gypsy and then cut out on the cricut. I must say that i am happy with the way this turned out.

Now here is my next banner bit. My Basic Grey Monthly kit arrived this week and i knew i just had the perfect photos to use with these papers. The kit comes with some sketches and some LO instructions in case you don't feel like creating your own, so the LO on the left is a lifted one, the LO on the right is my own.

Now you know how i go on about "it's all in the packaging" . Well my dear friend Tracey gave me a sheet of scrapbooking paper and look at how she wrapped it. Oh its so nice it just sits on my craft desk where i can admire it. The paper will probably be so rolled up when i get to use it that it wont be any good, but it's just way to pretty to open.

This morning i felt like cooking so i said to the kids that we will have slow roasted lamb shanks with home made gnocchi for dinner. Huh, what was i thinking. The shanks aren't a problem they are in the slow cooker but it is now 5pm and the last thing i feel like doing is making gnocchi. Ahhhgh i had better go and get on with it.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Everything looks better with bunting on it! Love the school photo - very sweet. The J card looks most effective - I think I need the software to do that!
