Small but Perfectly Formed - and some photos of the Grandchildren.

 Good morning. Sorry I haven't been around much this week but I have been so busy - first with visit from scrummy Lola Arizona and Oliver at the weeknd - photos to follow at end of this post :-)
and I have been trying to get everything organised for our hoilday a week on Sunday - not having much success shopping for summer clothes now though :-(
Not much crafting been done either - except for DT work
to get ahead before the hols and when we are away so I can schedule posts :-)

Anyways I'm here today to share my DT project for 

and this week the lovely Hazel challenged us to 


I really panicked over this theme as I have never made an ATC before!!!!

But here's my effort - I decided to use it as a topper for a 4"x4" card

I started with creating a background using some Creative Expression stamps and Adirondack Lights, Brights and Earthtone inks in Expresso, Sandal and Hazelnut. I stamped and heat embossed the butterfly then cut it out before mounting onto the background.  Some co-ordinating ribbon and a pearl brad for the finshing touches together with a stamped and heat embossed then distressed sentiment from Creative Expressions.

Hopefully it is as the post title suggests - small but perfectly formed???

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to see some fabulous work from my DT buddies - so much better than mine lol!!!

Before  I go as promised here are some up to date photos of Oliver and Lola - my two scrummilicious Grandchildren - who are changing on a weekly basis almost :-)

Daddy's girl!

 With Uncle Jack :-)
 Here's a few of them on their first holiday:

Hope you can join us this week.
Thanks for popping over.

oh Debs - your grandchildren are just adorable. What gorgeous babies they are (and I wouldn't comment if I didn't think they were, I'd just say ooh haven't they grown, or something !!!)

Anyway - no wonder you love cuddles - they both are extremely cuddly - Lola could be in a baby advert - they should get her signed up with an agency - SERIOUSLY!!!!

Lots of love - card is nice too lol!!!
