Time for me!

Hello everyone.

I'm on a roll for extra posts this week.  I've had some time off due to illness last week, and today is the last day of my Doctors note, but I am feeling much better, so today is some time for me.  Little one's at Nursery, and the housework can wait!

Looking back through my posts its been a while I posted just for the sake of it, I'm so busy with DT stuff and requests, I don't get much chance to play with other bits.

A couple of weeks ago I ordered the pick of the week from create and craft.  Its a CD Rom, with the matching stamps by Rachelle Ann Miller.  I hadn't even unwrapped it until today!  Here's my first creation using the CD.

I can't take credit for colouring this one - its just a topper.

The other equipment I'm testing out is a silhouette portrait, my hubby brought me as an early birthday present.  I've looking longingly at these for a while, and finally persuaded him I needed one. I made the frame with it... not bad for a first attempt, need to get used to blade adjustments and the software, but it seems like its going to be a good investment... Thanks Matt!
