Woods, Wheels and Wellies

I know the title is very tenuous but hey ........ it is Friday!

Have you been over to Mojo Holder today? Last night challenge #85 went live and our NEW design team was also revealed. We have said goodbye to Candy, Nicki and Sandie who because of other commitments have decided to leave the design team but joining us are Jamie, Maria (who some of you will know as Ria979902), Paula and Sheena. I'm really pleased to welcome the new girls on board and look forward to working alongside them in future.

Last nights challenge was to lift a LO by Martha Bonneau. Martha is a designer for Sassafras Lass and Sistv. Martha's LO featured a chipboard house. Mine didn't! I tried (honestly) to incorporate a chipboard house but the LO but it just wasn't working so the chipboard went in the bin and I used another photo in it's place. LOL.

My LO used photos taken at BeWILDerwood in Norfolk. They describe it as "A curious tree house adventure park" and is based around the fantasy book 'A Boggle at BeWILDerwood' by Tom Blofeld. Tom Blofeld is the land owner of the 50-acre which has a natural,healthy and back-to-basics ethos to natural play. The 'Theme Park' has amazing tree houses, a sky high broken bridge, zip wires and slippery slides plus opportunities to build dens in the wood and a maze. It's great for children and my three really enjoyed it when we visited last October.

Whilst sorting out yesterday I came across some LOs I did earlier in the year but never uploaded. they were really simple LOs but used some really challenging papers from CherryArte. I bought the papers on a bit of an impulse and took ages to use them! Don't tell me I'm the only one who does that? Because the Los were of my boys and to prove to everyone that I do scrap my boys I'm uploading them.

Today, was Harvest Festival at Lara's school. As well as taking in produce which would go to a local mother and baby home, they had a visit from a chap from the Fisherman's Mission to talk about the 'harvest of the sea' and he organised a competition to decorate a welly boot! So earlier this week out came my retro flower punch and a circle punch and a sheet of dotty stickers and Lara set to work decorating her welly. She didn't win but she was happy with her entry.

Have a great day. Be back soon.
