I am a 42 year old, very happily married mother to 3 wonderful(most of the time!!) children, who loves to craft.I live in the county of West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom. I work part-time but wish I could spend all my time crafting & creating. I love to scrapbook,make gift bags, create gifts, bake etc etc!!!!!!
My DD5 is back to school on Wednesday & we spent the last couple of weeks making a gift for her new teacher. It took alot of patience to create but think we did a great job.
We used 2 embroidery hoops 9" & 12", each crayon was then placed individually & hot glued in place. The apples were made using the Speaking of School Cricut cartridge, page 31 in the handbook using the shift key & shadow feature. The lettering was cut using the Opposites Attract cartridge using the opposite feature & cut @ 1 1/4"
I just hope it lasts the year & the kids don't help themselves to the crayons !!!!! lol..........
For those of you who haven't been Northumberland is amazing. Such a fantastic landscape, excellent places to visit & castles like you wouldn't believe & beaches to die for. We have been luck enough to spend a few days there over the summer & wanted to share some of the images with you.
Wow !!!!!! I've been away a while, but decided to get back and update my blog regularly. Have just noticed that I have a couple of followers.............. Welcome guys :o) I really hope you like what i'm doing & hope you come back to visit again !!!!!
I saw one of these a while back via a Martha Stewart link & just knew I had to give it a go, it was alot of work & boy it contains more calories than I dared to imagine but OMG it was delicious !!!!!!!
