The Gift of Family

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

Hope you are having a good weekend.

I've been busy getting some magazine work completed but also having fun making a special gift for my DiL Rowena - who's birthday is on Wednesday so I thought I would pop by and share it with you.

It's safe to post it here as I know the kids don't go on my blog - but I'll wait to post it on FB as they do look there :o)

I also wanted to share what I bought at the NEC on Thursday - what a totally fabulous day I had with the lovely Sue and Kat - we arrived just as they opened and left not long before they were closing - a  long day but loved every minute of it.

So first here is the 'Family' themed printer's tray gift I have made for Rowena - all the photos are from their wedding last September
 I loved putting this together and I hope she likes it.

My main focus when shopping at the NEC this time was for items for my Home Decor makes.

First up a few stamps from Inkylicious - I love their sentiment stamps

Then a few stencils

A couple of dies

Some necessary inks, gilding waxes, sprays and paints

And lastly a few essentials

Unfortunately what no-one seemed to be selling was some extra hours in the day to play with all this gorgeous stash - hopefully I will find some time this week to have a good play though as we will be away after Easter for a few days visiting my brothers and sister.

Thanks for popping by.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
