Crop LO’s & a GD spot!….

I’m feeling very privileged! I mentioned back before Christmas that I had been asked to be guest designer for February on ‘These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things’…a favourite challenge site of mine! Well, today is the start of my design spot & here is the first of my two featured LO’s…My Favourite Memory…

favememoryresize  I love this photo of Alex, taken when he was just a few hours old…The journaling reads “I remember the day I met this little man for the very first time! On August 11th 1996, Alex Murray Robinson arrived, 9 days late & by emergency Caesarean…on my 36th birthday! After ten years of marriage & resignation that we were, maybe, destined never to become parents, I will always remember the surge of love that overwhelmed me on that day. His brother followed two & a half years later & the feeling of love & awe was no less, but the memory of that first realisation that we were, at last, a family has to be my favourite.”

Do pop over to TAAFOMFT & check out the awesome work of the Design team for this challenge & also the winners of the last ‘Favourite Outfit’ challenge.

The white flowers in my LO are two of the beautiful crocheted ones made for me by my good friend Val…I knew they’d be perfect!

I had a chance to show her how I’d used them at the Crafty Stash crop on Saturday. We all worked on three amazing class kits, designed by Tracey Hudson & unbelievably I managed to complete TWO!!! This is my take on the first…laughresize This is a photo I hadn’t even considered scrapping, but when I saw the sneak peek included the word ‘Laugh’ I decided to go for it!!! It was taken in Turkey last year, while I was in my wheelchair!!! Ro had bought me this ‘Magnum’ chocolate bar & it was a very phallic shape, which caused much hilarity when I came to eat it!!

The second class kit involved sooo much hand cutting…but I’m happy with how my take turned out…Nanny&MeresizeI got to have a play with a Martha Stewart corner/border punch & was very impressed!

I still have the third LO to finish…watch this space!

I will be back later this evening to announce the winner of my OWOH giveaway!
