Summers 1st Birthday xxx

Tomorrow is Summers first birthday!!!

I can still remember the day she came into our lives, she is just so adorable and the most precious little girl in the world to us!!!

Here she is with her best mate sat watching "Pepper Pig" and just look at those legs all full of bruises from her crawling.

I have used one of Molly Blooms new release available at the Craft Box here! Coloured with copics.

Her card is made up of plain bazzil and Jack & Jill Prima papers available here.

Cut out some balloons in the same papers but the 6 x 6 range and added brown bazzil as the string a brown bow.

I have used my favourite Love heart dies for behind the image and some yummy bling and plenty of stickles. To finish off Summers name and 1st birthday cut on my cricut from the "Story Book" cartridge.


Sorry I have been absent all last week but I did mention I was starting a new job well its knocked me for six I can tell you and I just feel really down. I just can't concentrate on anything at the moment even cleaning the house!! lol.

I feel really bad for not blogging and letting my teamies down over at The Crafty Purple Frog for missing the challenge this week and I really hope that this week will be better and I will get back to my usual dizzy self!!!

Thanks for all your lovely comments for my last post they really have cheered me up all week.

Love Chanelle xxxxxx
