And now for something completely different....

Hello everyone I certainly hope you are all enjoying your weekends.  I am going to put my Halloween decorations up today in preparation for spookiness!  I need some cobwebs so I'll have to go out later and try and find some, I knew I shouldn't have dusted - lol!! 

I have not made a card today but tried something completely different.  I while back I got some little calenders which came in a pack of 10 and I think they were only £1 which seems very cheap to me, they are by Anita's.  I saw a tutorial on how to make a calender with XL frames on Lisa's blog and decided to give it a go as I am still playing with my Big Shot.  Here is the result:


I quite enjoyed making something other than a card for a change.  I have used my Kreate Dies XXL and the papers are Anna Griffin which I have had for years and I do mean years!  The image is sitting Tilda but it is not the one I wanted to use that one had a butterfly on the back of her dress but I could not find the blighter anywhere - do need to catalogue those stamps!!  I have distressed the edge with pink acrylic paint.  I have used a Spellbinders Parisian Accent motif on the left side and the other dies are Marianne with the small butterfly being a MS punch.  I have Stickled the heart and small butterfly and added gems to both butterflies.  The decorative pin I made myself and flowers are Wild Orchid.  I did tell my husband he could have it for his desk but he didn't look too impressed, I can't think why!!

I will enter it in the following challenges:

Just Magnolia - Pink
Totally Papercrafts - Layer upon Layer
Scrappy Frogs - Something that Flies
The Squirrel and The Fox - One for the Girls
Thanks so much for looking, enjoy the rest of your weekends and take care xx
