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

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
