As it was lovely and dry I let Alex crawl all over the playground which he loved...his trousers were a mess at the end, but he was very happy. Today the weather hasn't been so kind..we made two brief jaunts outside and were rained on both times. However, Alex and I have been rolling happily on the floor together, playing chase, peering round door friends and going boo etc all to very loud giggles...I just love his laugh it is so infectious!
I have managed to do some crafting this weekend as well and catch up on some of the swaps that I have joined. The April technique swap on CM&PC forum is decoupage...not something I do very often as I am not fond of lots of cutting out. This means that I the only sheets of decoupage I have are freebies from magazines so I used those for this swap. They are all Margaret Shelly I believe if anyone is interested. I then mounted them on cards and decorated with glitter pens and ribbon where appropriate. Although I have made 4 only 3 are for the swap as I thought I had better keep one of them for posterity!
I also made an entry for a competition so I can't show it here. The theme of the competition was black and white, not something I have tried before although it is very trendy at the moment. Finally I made my three entries for the latest mystery item swap. The three items we had to use on our ATCs were a cocktail stick, a drinking straw and a sweet wrapper. I have to say that I found this one a bit of a challenge, but did eventually come up with something. The sweet wrapper one didn't turn out quite as well as I hoped though, as the stamping onto the layers of quality street wrappers wasn't even so it was hard to make out the medallion shape on it. I hope that these will be good enough for the swap.
