Punky Scraps Challenge

I've been itching to make another LO & after a bit of mooching on UKS I came across a fab blog by Natalie who also runs a challenge blog called Punky Scraps so I thought I'd have me a go!!

The challenge is to create an LO taking inspiration from the picture below...

Well when I saw it I was immediately drawn to the cassette on the middle right (love those colours together!) and straight away thought of a sheet of Scenic Route PP I had in my stash... the circles remind me of speakers and the colours? well, maybe not exactly what I had in mind but close enough for me!!

So this is what I came up with...

I love these pics of 'Number 2'... they totally capture his personality & the way his hair has gone all static from the trampoline is too cute!!

So many thanks to Natalie for giving me the confidence & inspiration to try out some new painty, doodley techniques, hope you like it!

Magnolia Tent Card

Been having another play in between nappy changing!! Connor is a very woebegone boy at the moment, he's covered in spots after catching chicken pox from his older brother, poor little mite...

I haven't used this Tilda before so it's about time she got an outing, I also used the tent card tutorial from the Just Magnolia & Hanglar Stanglar Challenge Blog and the flower tutorial from Magnola Ink Magazine

Papers are K&Co with lots of twiddly bits, glitter (which you can't see!!) & dimensional pearl to finish.

This card is entered in Magnolia Stamp Lovers "Anything Goes" challenge
