About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job.

Fantastic Tuesday

Good evening, hope everyone is keeping well and warm, it is freezing here and very windy. So today is my birthday and also a new challenge for fantastic Tuesday........ Theme is add some fruit. Wow that's was quite hard for me but I did find some apples on my new graphic 45 - time to flourish papers. I only got these last week and didn't want to cut into them !!! 

I have had a lovely day going to cinema with my Hubby and great friends. We then went to chiquitos for lunch. This was my first time and we thought it was fab. My very good buddy Maria got me something I have been after for ages - Tim holtz scissors and rulers, and the wonderful Sue from the craft shop and club I go to got me ranger texture tools. Can't wait to use them. 

Hubby also spoilt me with loads of lovely things including a Martha Stewart scoreboard yay ......

Anyway enough of me waffling on. Have a wonderful evening. Thanks for stopping by. Much love Elaine xx
