New Baby exploding Box for Helen

One of my work colleagues Helen asked me to make and exploding box for imminent the birth of her baby nephew.

She wanted me to make it the same colouring as the previous one, but to make it personal we encorporated the details of the baby's big brother.

It would appear that baby projects are quite popular at the moment as you will soon see.

I used many embellishments to decorate the flaps of the box and Helen was absoloutely delighted with it.

I have made the slideshow below to showcase all the pictures.

Double Challenge Card

Now, I'm not usually too good at this sort of thing but I have made a card that satisfies 2 different challenges !

Over on Just Bex there is a Challenge Week and so far there have been loads of lovely challenges to get our mojo's stimulated. This is the card I have made for the Zest Appeal challenge which asked for a flower, ribbon, scallop and bling in zesty colours.

Another forum I visit has also got some challenges and this is in the Bright & Beautiful category.

The card is a Let's Make Cards one, paper is a freebie from a magazine, ribbon is Anita's, flower is HOTP, bling is freebies. Glitter butterflies and leaf sequin from stash. The tag is a printable scrapbook freebie, I have no idea who the author is as I printed it out last year and didn't use them !!

Love this brighter weather, it makes it so much easier to make brighter projects as your state of mind is sunnier in general.

Went to See Adele in Concert

On Sunday 4th May Paul and I went to see Adele at the Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham and she was absolutely fantastic.

I loved her first single and was soooo impressed with her voice. I was gutted when I realised she was playing a small gig at the Glee Club and it was sold out. Just when it was announced she was up for a Brit award this extra date was announced and I knew I wanted to go straight away. Paul initially didn't seem to be very enthusiastic about going so I booked it just for me and then he said he wanted to go to so I sorted out a ticket for us both.

I've never been to the Alex before and the best tickets in the middle seemed to be in the dress circle. We were right in the middle and the stage seemed really close.

The support act Elviin was really good. Never heard of him but really strong voice and was well impressed.

Adele was just blooming amazing. So good that Paul was impressed ( I knew he would like her !! MEN!) Her voice was amazing and she was exactly in tune. If anyone gets a chance to see her live you must do it, she was very good. The above piccie is courtesy of Paul's phone !

Bad Blogger !!!

Been really busy at work this last week so have been a bad blogger.

Been doing the 6am - 3.30pm shift due to staffing holidays and have been managing all the day to day running and planning of the day transport shift and it has been so tiring. I am doing my full job plus elements of 2 other peoples and it is good experience for me, but my body clock is all messed up as a result. Got up at 4.43am this morning and just could not get back to sleep !

Will have to catch up with a lot of stuff today as a result.
