The Sugar Bowl ~ May #137

Woohoo, it's time for the next Sugar Nellie Challenge and you can't even imagine how excited I've been about this. Right up to the moment I got a nasty tummy bug! So that put me out of action for a couple of days, but I recovered enough on Wednesday to finish up my DT make with these gorgeous images from Scrapberry's range at Funky Kits. I've used Blue Bunny & Pink Bunny for this creation. They are such sweeties for bubs and that's perfectly timed for me, as one of my best pals has a bubby turning 1 in June. I can't wait to share this sweet surprise with her!


It's my hubby's birthday today, so I'm chasing my tail after a couple of days of feeling really poorly. So it's just the one pic for now. I'll add more tomorrow. So pop back if you'd like to see these gorgeous images up close. In the meantime, check out the gorgeous creations my teamies made. The Sweeties have been hard at work whipping up some pretty spectacular creations (which isn't difficult when you've got such gorgeous subject matter! Sugar Nellie's rock!!)


Go check out the new challenge at Sugar Nellie and come join us with your own Sugar Nellie creation. Anything Goes - Using a Sugar Nellie Image. Click the DT link above to head over there. We have lots of Gorjuss Girls in store, so if you're a Gorjuss Girl fan, you can enter with any of the range sold at Funky Kits. Check out the store here, to know what you could enter with. You'll be hooked once you start looking! Make sure you check out the soon to be discontinued line which is going out of license. These are some of my all time favourite Sugar Nellies a lot by artist Marina Fedotova. There are three pages of them. So don't miss out! They're on sale too, so you don't want to miss this! Seriously, you'll be thanking me!


Okay, that's me for today. I'll pop back soon with a photo update and some further details of the ingredients used to create my sweet 'exploding box' (reveal to come!).

Hugs to you all until then, Wends x

Mod Squad: Use It Or Lose It ~ my 'forgotten stash' is mountains of paper, this ancient Maja Design page (the pink one in my box creation) I have had for years and years, so it was overdue an outing! So perfect with it's lovely brocade design on the outside and sweet wee hearts inside for this '1st Birthday' creation. I also used an older Marianne Design doily die which rarely gets an outing these days and the pearl loops on the top are from a pearl strand I purchased so long ago it's embarrassing. This is the first outing that's had! :) :)

Update: What a gorgeous surprise to discover tonight that I made Top 3 over on the Mod Squad blog! Thank you ladies, I'm thrilled to bits! :)

My sweet friend, I am just returning from being ill, too! I'm glad you're on the mend. Your project is gorgeous! Not only so, but also completely adorable. :o) I love the little cutie pies you colored and your design is complete perfection. The flowers and pearls are so pretty. The papers are the sweetest color combination... love and sunshine. :o) Beautifully done as always, Wends. I hope your hubby had a wonderful birthday and that you're feeling sparkly. :o) Sending extra hugs your way!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
