Little Gabby Stroll - Baby Gift Bag

Hiya crafty friends, what a turn in the weather eh?!...cold, wet and very windy! Just let's hope it passes over quickly and that the good weather comes back!!! Today it's my turn to share a touch of inspiration for Digi Doodle Studios. For my DT creation, I have used Little Gabby Stroll, isn't she so adorable?! She is part of the 'Bundles of Joy' Baby collection. I created this little gift bag.

On that note, I've been bursting to say... this might come in handy in November as we are expecting our first Grandchild!!! Will now need to make one in blue too, just incase as don't know whether Girl or Boy but sooo overjoyed and thrilled to say the least!!!!

Say it with Flowers ...

Hiya Crafty Friends, I'm here again with another piece of inspiration for you. This time for Crafty Addicts new challenge, that starts today. Kindly sponsoring us this month is Lacy Sunshine and I am using the gorgeous Rory's Lilacs, which is very apt for our optional theme of 'Say it with Flowers', but you can still follow our normal 'Anything Goes'. I really enjoyed creating this one, as I was able to use some of my new paper flowers that my son brought me back from his holiday in Florida (having been pointed in the direction of a Michael's store that was close to his hotel lol)  and with lilacs being one of my favourite flowers, but also my favourite colour too!!
