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. Well I hope you like what you see on my blog. I'm always grateful for people taking a peek and leaving messages x

1st craft Buddy challenge 2015

Good evening and a big warm welcome to my blog. So today's post is all about reviving the challenge posts that myself and Maria did ages ago. We decided to start them up again as a challenge. So the 1st theme is.......
Wait for it .......
Peel offs. Yes you either love them or hate them, but pretty much everyone I know purchased them in the thousands when they started crafting. I was no different I must have way over 200 sheets and that's after I've given away loads and loads ! So I had a rummage and found some male ones that I got about 3/4 years ago from Little Claire. 

And I must say I really enjoyed making this. I put the peel off image onto watercolour card and used my Tim holtz distress markers to colour it in. Even the little squares in the corner are peel offs !! I added doodlebug paper and twine. Let me know what you think and please do hop over to Maria's blog to see what she has made.
Anyway today I made another as I enjoyed that one so much lol

Hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by, I really do appreciate it.
Take care & big hugs 
Elaine xx
