Fimo Fairy Book

A good time was had by all today when 'Fimo' Bev visited the studio.

This morning everyone made Fimo fairies and butterflies and during lunch the fairies and butterflies were cooked in the oven.

This afternoon we covered an 6 x 6 MDF book with beautiful fairy papers, inks and ribbons and attached the fairies and butterflies to the front cover. I will upload more pictures tomorrow.

Has any one else had this problem?? I have received emails from bloggers who can not link to my blog candy!! that's very very annoying too!!! If you are one of those bloggers please leave a comment even if you can't link. I do not want anyone to miss out on the chance of candy!! :-)

Pretty much the same

The view from the kitchen window this morning looks much the same as Monday!! I plan on venturing out today with the camera, yes I am going to brave the weather conditions!! I do actually like the snow and as I have no young children now to play out with I will take the dogs!! I took the dogs on Monday but forgot the camera!! lol So some more snowy scenes and then who knows maybe some wintery layouts!! :-)

The bushes are flat with the weight of the snow, looks like they've had a hair cut!! lol

Now for a bit of crafting...........
