I've had barely no time to craft over the last couple of weeks, it doesn't feel good! When I'm not at work Ivy is dragging me around the house or dancing or running around and demanding attention and it's exhausting! (Don't get me wrong, she's completely amazing and cute and funny and crazy and beautiful, but exhausting!) I especially would love some free time to have a proper play with my new toy to replace my poor old Cuttlebug, it's a Sizzix Big Shot Plus! It's so pretty, I'm a lucky crafter! (Also look at my lovely new stamp/die storage basket, so organised!) Apologies for the dark late-night photo...
I did manage a quick layout at the weekend so I have something to share. This one is a photo of Ivy after we took the sides off her cotbed last year, she was really excited and didn't want to wait until bed time to test it out!
I set myself a little challenge to use die-cutting on every layout I make, I squeezed it in here with the Lawn Fawn clouds and Sizzix journalling block!

Make the Day Special have a really fun challenge this month, a bingo card of elements to choose from!
I have gone with the middle row; dry embossing, circles and bling/sequins. I love this little Avery Elle Ellie stamp, so cute! The happy birthday die, the circle dies and the papers are all Lawn Fawn. The awesome embossing folder is by Dear Lizzy.
This is going to be a birthday card for my friend's beautiful daughter who is 1 next week, and her name coincidentally is Ellie. Had to be done, didn't it!
