Right off to tidy up all the stuff that is still all over the dining table... I think it could be a disaster waiting to happen if I left it out for the looked after children coming for breakfast tomorrow!!!

The black eye was the result of Oliver being thrown into Harry by his friend Adam!!! Sounds very dramatic, but anyone with boys will totally understand that they cannot simply play... they always end up play fighting!!! And they had been told so many times to stop/be careful etc etc, but of course it all ended in tears! But to his credit, not many tears... he only whimpered a bit, and it wasn't until he came in for his tea that I realised he actually had a black eye! I think he is secretly very pleased with his tough new look... it's certainly getting a few comments when we go out!
I also got to play with some American Crafts Zing embossing powder. I've had embossing powders before and they've been ok for cards, but I've never really like the results enough to use it on a LO. Until now! The quality of the Zing powders is brilliant. The colours are rich and vibrant, and it melts so easily and evenly leaving a perfect result every time. Check out the colours available.
This LO was created for a challenge on The Twilight Addicts forum on UKS. I worked out how to make these cute butterflies one night while watching the tv. It was kind of an accidental find... I was fiddling with a number 8 I had made to use on a LO, which I then decided I didn't like. I folded it up whilst watching something or other and when I had folded it all up, realised it looked like a butterfly! I wrote an illustrated tutorial for these too and this can also be seen over on the Sarahscards blog. I'd love to see how you use these butterflies on your work :)
Right I seriously need to go and get dressed!!! This blog update has taken an age!!! Why can't blogger be good and just upload photos to where you want them to go without having to do the mad rearranging thing?!?!?
