Competition winner!! Halloween and Pink Petticoat

Good evening!
Firstly, thank you to everyone for your poppicrafts competition entries. I have genuinely had a tough task choosing a winner. I noticed that a few of you cheeky ladies added an extra colour - naughty,naughty,lol... silver seemed to be the favourite.
Anyway, eventually I chose a winner, her card is right up my street - bold,bright and juicy!! She is the very talented Enfys and you can drool over her card here.

Moving onto spookier stuff, we have had a great half term, walks in the woods,pub lunch, bowling, Riley even wanted to go to Tescos, which I was really impressed with, until he said "Ive got my pocket money, once Ive picked a toy, we can go home" and then on Friday we met Hannah (aka hans crafty creations) and we had a great time. Hannah organised balloons,party games, halloween lunch and spooky goody bags. William (hannahs son) was so sweet and patient with Riley. He was showing him how to play bowling on the Wii and showed him over and over again until he grasped it.Thank you Hannah it was fab to meet you, you are very kind and made us feel so welcome.

Then yesterday, we went to my mums for a halloween tea. Poppi and Riley loved it, they had a halloween chocolate treasure hunt in the pitch black, with just a torch each and Apple bobbing, which was hilarious - every time Riley went under the water he shook himself like a dog, splashing water everywhere and the bowl was a bit deep for Poppi, so every time she dunked her under she was near enough doing a headstand trying to reach the apples, anyway we had a really fab evening - thanks mum for decorating the house and making so much fun for the little ones (and me)







And finally, well its just so simple, yet genius isnt it???

I am forever printing off the Pink petticoat colour sampler, then losing it. When I tidy the craft room I find about 10 of them. AAGH!!! So when I saw the colour pallete on the website, I just had to print it off. I mean, how often do we scratch around trying to find papers that match/co-ordinate with our embellishments. This is just so easy - hold it up to my vast stash of ribbon and blooms and find the perfect match - fan - blimmin - tastic!! That is what I love about PP, you can just print what you want. So often in the past I have bought paper stacks because I like some of the papers and you end up with colours and patterns that you will never use and they sit in your stash for ages.

Thank you Liz for this genius little download, its hanging up in my crafty place.



Thanks for looking,
Hope you all had a great weekend,
Mich
