Get Stuck in

On the Just Bex forum we were challenged to use some of our new stash!!

Now there's no excuses for most of you for this challenge Lots of you have been mentioning having this weekend off and soooooo many of you have been boasting on here about all the new stash you've been buying lately So this challenge should be quite simple really, although maybe not for some of you paper know who you are !!!! Simply make anything, but it has to be using your most recent stash.....that means cutting into those new papers girlsNow there's no excuses for most of you for this challenge

Here's what I came up with, the stamp is a Crafty Individuals which came from and the paper is Basic Grey's Infuse that I bought from a craft shop on Saturday

Had a lovely weekend, met up with a friend and her son & we were all blown along the seafront at Millford which gave us a good excuse for hot chocolate and chips afterwards!!

Charlotte was invited to a friends party on Sunday at a playcentre so we bought Jamie a ticket & he played too - the only downside was that it started at 10am and was half an hours drive away, not good for the morning that the clocks go forward!!
