About Me

Im 39 years old and work in retail as a Deputy Manager. I love to craft whether it be cardmaking or altering something. I have been crafting for almost 10 years and it helps me to relax after those busy days at work. My big aim was to blog regular and get onto a design team, now Im on 2. Very proud to have recently made Jones design team. I am godmother to 2 lovely children Matty & and Rebecca...Hope you all like what you see and thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving comments.

Almost back in the real world !

Hello dear blogger friends. Well I'm pleased to say that we now have internet, phone and TV ! Yay. However still no craft room furniture (going to IKEA later) , on the plus side blinds are being fitted for both windows. Yep I made hubby give me the room with 2 windows to let the light in, he has a tiny box room with 1 window as his man cave lol. He does also have the garage so don't feel to sorry for him. 
Anyway back to craft, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and for the purple team it was photo inspiration and here is my interpretation..... Please remember I didn't have access to hardly any craft stash so had to use a kit. 

Hope you like it. Please drop over and see what my lovely teamies have made. 
Big welcome to my newest follower Marlene, she has a poorly back at the moment so wishing her well. Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
Love Elaine xx
