Spending Spree!

As it was my birthday yesterday my parents gave me £25 because I couldn’t think of anything that they could buy me. I know…….I can think of many things now!

Anyway by the afternoon the money was begging to be spent so off we went to The Range. Trouble is there’s so much there I just don’t know where to begin! I kept in mind all the snow pic’s that are waiting to be scrapped which helped me to keep away from the new seasonal stuff!! I don’t do Valentine anyway.

As you can see in the photo below there’s quite an  assortment of fabric buttons, white alphas, silver stickers and a couple of packs of papers. I also found a nest of 3 blank boxes to decorate. All for £25  so I was a very happy bunny :)


But the best bit …………………….  was getting home & finally feeling inspired to actually make something with all this gorgeous stuff!

Which led on to more…….


Once upon a time …. there was a little boy who wanted to be a tree


Home sweet home. I’m not entirely happy with this one. I think I need to embellish it with something ……….  but I don’t know what …….. any idea’s?

Thanks for looking

  1. My Mom and Dad took me to The Range when I was over in the UK last year - I bought a few things to bring back and use....and a couple of magazines that had free stamp sets on them! You don't get free things on magazines here :(

    Nothing like a shopping spree and new supplies to inspire you :)
