Hi everyone! Happy weekend and what a glorious sunny day it was today. At Crafts 4 Eternity this week, we have a theme of SOCIAL MEDIA. So be inspired by facebook, twitter etc.

I thought I'd do a bird themed project, inspired by Twitter. So I upcycled a Maya Road bird shaped chip board album to make this mini album. 
I've decorated both sides of each bird with Sassafraslass ~ Sweetly Smitten papers.
For the bird on the front and back of the album, I've added wings made with the Tim Holtz Sizzix ~ Heart Wings die.
I've decorated each side in such a way that a little photo can be added in most cases.
Each chipboard piece has a different eye on each side. 
I just rummaged around in my stash to find bits to decorate them with.
This next side is one of my favourites. Love that pink Teresa Collins flower ribbon.
There are six chipboard pieces in total.
And now I'm running out of things to say, so will just show you the rest.


This is another of my favourites, with the leaf tail.

I'm going to enter this in at the following challenges:

    Hello! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Here we are back at Monday and another Cupcake Challenge. This time, it is my turn to choose the challenge theme, for the very first time! So in honour of our leader and the challenge, I chose: pink as the main colour, at least one cupcake and add something fluffy. Easy huh?

    Here is what I came up with.

    Papers: Bo Bunny ~ Sweet Tooth.
    Trims: Webster's Pages.

    note: I love you!

    Hello! It's been a while. Since I last wrote, my Sweetie broke his ankle and ended up in hospital for five days. Then just as I got him settled in at home, I came down with flu. So if I have neglected you with my commenting, please bear with me and I will catch up soon as.

    Today we have a new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity, which is lock and key.

    I have used these beautiful papers from My Mind's Eye ~ Kraft Funday 6x6 pad. These papers are very 'me'. I have glitzed the edges with distress ink and stickles.

    OMG! Am sooo in love with these new gorgeous stamps I have just discovered. Need some more in the physical stamp variety please!

    Image: Some Odd Girl ~ Love Letter Kaylee. I coloured her with copics and added some stickles.

    The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

    Here is my lock and key.

    Lock: Melissa Frances ~ Vintage keyhole.
    Key: 7gypsies 

    Also don't forget the February C4E inspired by this is packed full of inspiration if you need a prompt or some help with your mojo, you will find it here.

    I am entering this in at the following challenges:
    and linking up to Some Odd Girl who are looking for Valentine's projects.

    little lady ... aged 4

    Hello! Today I'm coming at you from Cupcake Craft Challenges where this week we have a pink and red colour theme challenge.

    Here is my card. It is rather large, A4 size and I'm not very good taking clear photos of large projects, close up.

    These fabulous papers, which are my favourite are from My Mind's Eye ~ Lost & Found 2: Blush - Better collection.

    I made the name with some chipboard alphabet pieces I had lying around and created my own stickle colour by combining various different colour stickles and mixing them together until I had a colour that matched the red on the paper.

    I also used the same blend of stickles around my die cut paper layers.

    Here's another view.
