Had a crazy couple of days here in Ottawa. Malcolm (7) had an all day tournament about an hour away from here & DH, his coach, lost his voice, cheering our team on to the rank of Champions! Lots of fun, long day. That same night, last night, my youngest (3) woke up sick & had a really rough night. I am working on about 2-4 hours sleep, hard to tell when you’re woken up every 15. I am so past that stage & I’m feeling the effects today + that darn sore throat, yuck.
I did see this week’s Cinema Saturday Creative #13, ‘Mama Mia’ and had to give it a go. Crafting always makes me feel better! The Sneak Peek from yesterday, wow, tough, even with the hints, way to go Carol for guessing it! So it’s Mama Mia! After humming ABBA songs through out the day, I thought I’d go with this image for a creation. The Notebook/Diary is for my DD (9) & yes it has a lot of “bling & sparkle” but if you knew my Emma you’d know she’d love it.
I went with this image of Sophie, with her Mum’s Diary. Beautiful scenes of Greece too, wow.
I used my ’Zutter Bind it All‘ again & maxed out my Sizzix Big Shot Top Notes Die Cut. The Top Notes cuts a lot but WARNING it’s not quite strong enough for the ‘Zutter’ Chipboard, that stuff is REALLY Thick, especially when you also line it with a heavy sandpaper like glitter CS. Wow. I hope I haven’t squished the foam too badly.
Here’s what I made for my Emma-Sian:
And here’s the inside, just printer paper, cut down.
Thanks for the fun, ladies at CSCC! It was a nice reprieve today.
Used: Top Notes Die Cut, Big Shot, Zutter Bind It All, S.U. Flower Punches, Bling Bling Shimmer Cardstock 6″x6″ (Forever In Time), Gemstone Stickers (Forever In Time), Pixie Pink CS, Tempting Turquoise CS, Silver Rick Rack, Sizzix Sizzlits Script Alphabet, Sizzix Machine.
My Hockey Champion, at the end of the day:
His Trophy for being Champion Team, did I mention he got a goal!
My little Liam & uber hockey coach, the day before the little guy got sick:
Right, I’m off to get kids ready for bed. Early morning, (3rd day of) hockey tomorrow for voiceless coach & tired 7 year old champion and hopefully blessed night for everyone. Night all!
