Wonderful Mum and Happy News

Hello friends

I'm still focusing on Mother's Day a few days on!
Revisiting a couple of projects that use the Wonderful Mum die.
For my gift box I used the fallout pieces - the word 'lovely' and 'Mum'.
The card took a little longer as I used the main die cut and then
reinserted lots of different fallout pieces - it was therapeutic!

Sprigs and Blooms One to decorate.

There's also an Awesome Dad die that works the same,
never quite sure of the word 'Awesome'...perhaps I'm getting old!

In other news thrilled to announce that Elliott has been offered a definite 
place at Greenwich University.  It is exactly the course he wants - Digital Media
and where he wants to be - good job too as it will be for three years! 

When we stopped excitably jumping up and down,
I then said 'oh, who is going to run the website?!'
So some changes afoot, I'll be returning to run most of the show
although I may still have to enlist Elliott's help from time to time - 
he is such a whizz with all the techy stuff.
I'm considering returning to my old blog Hope and Chances
to keep everything under the same name, lots of thoughts right now
but very happy ones.

Take care friends and please stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day.

    Fantastic news for Elliott-that's wonderful.


  7. Congratulations to Elliott - he's been running the website for so long he's going to find the course an absolute doddle. I bet he has more practical, real life experience of the matter than some of the lecturers!
