Read It!!!!!

Hi all, this post should have been up on Sunday but I'm afraid we have had mega issues with internet and not quite sure I could manage on my phone lol, it would take ages.  We have had internet all day today so looks like NTL (which are something else now lol) have sorted the problem.  So a huge apology for not being about, lack of internet, had a lack of mojo also which I think has been due to the hot hot weather.  My craft room is upstairs and it's not too good when your pouring sweat over your work, fine if your using distress though!!!! lol lol.
So this fortnight over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog our challenge is It's a Girl thing and we are being sponsored by the awesome Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and the DT this week got our Kraftin Kimmie stamps out to play.  Now as you know I have been doing less cards but more mixed media and getting inky.  Well it was great to get my promarkers out again but of course I had to be a bit grungy lol.

I would like to enter my book into the following challenges
                                                      Kraftin Kimmie Challenge - Anything Goes
                                                      Anything Goes Challenge - Anything Goes
                                                     



The lettering my daughter designed for me on the computer,
then I printed it out 3 times, two for the middle and shadow areas that
I cut out for masks and the 3rd to mask while I sprayed.  I did
make a mistake as the shadow on top of the E shouldn't be there lol.


This has now gone off to one of the DT members as she fell in love with it.  Initially I was going to bin it as I made a few mistakes I wasn't happy with lol.  Right I better go, it's so nice to have the internet back :-).  I missed it hugely but the kids, well you would think that their throat had been cut lol.  Now I am restricting them so they are not on it all the time!!!.  Hugs Kezzy xxxxx
