Fab Followers

Saturday, 24 January 2009


Its time for the this weeks One Stop Craft Challenge and this week Maggie has set the theme 'Charmed'. I wanted to make something other than a card so I went with a little bookmark, which was 'swiped' by my friend as soon as I'd made it lol which I took as a compliment. I have used Kate Knights 'Hint of Pink' papers for this project and I got the idea for the paper beads from the Sugar Sugar Challenge where Marlene has gave a fab tutorial on how to make them. They are a great way to keep your hands busy if your trying to quit smoking and the kids love making these too. I hope you can join us this week for the 'charmed' challenge, we love to visit your blogs and see your creations and as always there will be a prize for one randomly picked crafter. Enjoy your weekend. x

Morning Donna

Great bookmark you have done a cracking job of those beads. Think i will give them a go when i have settled in. The move went well yesterday and we were lucky my sister had declan(2yrs) for us so that made life easier for us as the other two children just ran around all day excited etc, well it is the day after and a littl saw to say the least but still lots of work to be getting on with.
Ta ta for now
