Shadow box swaps

Well today I am sharing with you my swap  that I made for some SU training fairies!  What a lovely day we had and I will be sharing everyones swaps with you over the next few days.

I saw the shadow box design on Amanda Bates' Craft Spa blog, fell in love with it so decided that this was going to be my swap, but with my own design for the inside.
Thank you for stopping by today.

Take care

Flower circle

Good afternoon, well what a complete washout the weather is this week eh?  Can't believe we are still in the summer months.  I suppose we need the rain for our reservoirs and for our gardens, but why can't it just rain at night when I'm in my bed and not during the day when I am trying to go about my business!
Anyway, todays card is using what is left from the Cottage Greetings card kit happy post, I received from a SU friend.
Will be adding this kit to my wish list for sure.

Children's craft morning 1.

Good morning, I wanted to share some pictures of a craft morning that I held (my very first for a long time) for some children. What a fun time we had!  I could not believe how quickly the girls mastered the use of the trimmer, scoreboard etc, they were actually better at it than some adults that I have come across over the past 15 years! 
As the class was going to be for 3 hours I thought two projects would be ok, as I originally had 5 children booked in but unfortunately on the day only 3 were able to make it. 

Here are the projects that I decided to do (some of these were made a little while ago so will show products that are now retired from SU). 
The top and the bottom ones were the planned projects!    When the girls had powered through the first project (post-it holder) I realised that I still had an hour to fill as I knew that the little baker boxes from the All Boxed Up kit were going to be so easy for them to do in 5 mins, so I pulled out a couple of projects that I had done previously and they chose to do the little box with a lid.

Tomorrow I will share the pics of their brilliant efforts.

Just want to thank them all for making the morning so much fun x

Thanks for stopping by today x
