baby boy gift

Now we are having a baby boom at work!!!! And all are boys lol my favourite:-))
This is for the soon to be born Kyle who should be with us boxing day, i have already this week took in a crochet blanket for Bradley who is arriving on the 11th of Nov, going to be a small baby so i am also making a couple of tiny cardies for the little man lol. And all i have to make now is something for the twin boys arriving in January:-))
The mini scrapbook page is one from Page maps, no idea who makes the papers as all i have left is scraps, the frame came from our pound shop, just wish i had got more now.
The box frame is decorated with matching rub on's that have been in my box forever lol

I ♥ ProMarkers #4

Welcome to another challenge at I love Promarkers, we have another fabulous sketch to play with and remember you can use any colours to colour your image with.

Here is a close up of the sugar nellie stamp, since getting the new colours i have changed my skin tones to Satin and Sun Kissed Pink.

Here are the pens i have used, i did not have maroon so made a sub with plum....all the pens before the white highlighter pen are the extra ones i have used for shading, skin and shoes.

And last but not least is the fabby sketch for you to play with.

Day off yesterday

and this is what i did lol, made a pen storage holder for my markers.....after seeing a pic of one on PFP site i went to ikea in Bristol which is 40 mins from me to get 2 lol but i do like ikea and had not been for ages and took a friend as well.
I got one for myself and one for my friend, but if she does not want it i am going to to the same thing but for my nestabilities and cling stamps, so it will not be wasted.
Also my stuff bucket arrived on thursday and her is a pic of it half full ready for craft club on Thursday night.
