Happy Long Weekend

...I'm sure that's not something you would normally say, but I don't care. I'm happy it's a long weekend :)


I had a plan of spending it all in my craft room. That idea fizzed out yesterday when I walked in there and realised what a pig sty it was. A few hours of cleaning later and I finally got to sit down and get bizzy.


I still have to clean up my stamps. I used to have them so organised. Folders for different ones. My stamps mounted on ezy mount are stored in CD containers in a disc holder. The prob is now tho that there are so many different types that I don't know how to organise them. My wooden ones are on a shelf, then I have a few different types of storage folders for others and then piles of loose ones I just chuck in a box. I will be after a sentiment or a flourish and then hunt through them all and half the time I end up throwing all of them in a box. They're a mess and not sure what to do with them.

So far this weekend I've done a couple of challenges. I've decided that I must love these images cause I rarely use the same ones twice in a row, sometimes never again. These cuties will def. be getting a bit of a workout.

This first one is for the Burtonesque Dolls challenge. I've been watching this blog for the past few weeks and this one peeked my interest as soon as I saw it. Helps haveing the beautiful Lilith as inspiration too!! With this challenge your design had to be inspired by Sweeny Todd. I got my inspiration from the first pic on the blog and used the colour theme. You also had to use decorative scissors or a distress tool. I used a sanding block on my cardstock.



This next one is for the Lil Lolita Challenge Blog and the theme they have is Anything Goes. How easy!!
