Ive managed a LO....

...and to be honest I am really pleased with it. This LO I have been wanting to make for ages and struggled to find the right LO so imagine my delight when I found a scrap lift over at the XOXO blog - thank you so much ladies. 

This is the day that the Gruffalo Trunki arrived and my darling daughter would not leave him alone and even tried to feed him biscuits.

Anyway here it is:


I have even managed to use my sewing machine, I sewed a large circle straight onto the stonehenge bazzill and then decided one circle wasnt enough so I carried on until I had 3.

Then came the decorating. For the paper I used some from EP A walk in the park collection pack - yes still ploughing through that one too. The flowers are petaloo ones and the leaves came from a box of papermania poinsettias which I haven't used as yet.


Instead of the dragonfly I used butterflies which were punched with the X-cut dimensional butterfly punch and I just cut it out the paper.


Hope you like it. I am entering it into the XOXO girls March challenge sponsored by Candy Shoppe Designs
