Spring/Easter at Ooh La La Creations - CH#177

Morning and happy Monday to you all.  WOW what a fortnight I have had, since talking to you all, as most of you know, Princess Olivia was born safe and sound, on 18th March, weighing in at a respectable 7lb 4oz.  She is gorgeous and a very good baby.  I have more or less been dealing with Noah, who has found it a little tough, but have to say now, he says, good morning, Mummy, Daddy, Baby, well that is after he calls to Granny to get him out of his cot..LOL..

Anyway, onto today's new challenge at Ooh La La Creations - CH#177 - Spring/Easter.



Very simple for me, hope you like it.

I have been playing with the new CD - which is coming to Create and Craft on 7th April.  The Paula Oakley Collection and WOW it was so very hard to just choose a few to make up as samples, it is amazing and you can pre-order yours HERE.


So after a 2 week, absence I will be sharing with you samples for both the new Lelli-Bot collection and Ooh La La Creations CD, which will both be showing on Create and Craft on 7th April.

Before I go, I thought I should share a picture of Miss Olivia Jane Robertson.

Only a few hours old.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

CD Sunday Challenge - Sentiment (must use something from a CD)
Glitter N Sparkle - CH#130 - Easter
Scribble and Scrap - CH#41 - Always Anything Goes
That Craft Place - Easter/Spring

Thank you for visiting my friends, and have a lovely day.

She's in Fashion at Ooh La La Creations CH#176

Happy Monday my friends, hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  Me I have been busy making samples for the next Lelli-Bot show on C&C, in April, so I am teasing you as a wee while before I can share with you..LOL...naughty Avril, LOL.

However, today we have a new challenge started at Ooh La La Creations CH#176  She's in Fashion, and I had a bit of a blast making my cards from the Say it with Words CD, available HERE

I adore this CD, the graphics are brilliant, and the sentiments, fit most of life's styles.  The good news is there will be a new CD available in April at Ooh La La Creations and the Gorgeous Kathryn Strachan will be on C&C with demo's so watch out for that, will bring more news as we go along.

(think Brian was so glad to have another Man to talk too, LOL), anyway, John had me make 10 commissioned cards for him at Christmas - using his Printed Ribbon, now tonight, he is launching his brand new website and is give a massive 25% off.  To see how far he has come since November pop along HERE.  He does the most amazing printed and non-printed ribbon, teddies etc, etc, not many things to mention.
