Hugs and Giggles...

Hello Everyone. Weren't the Olympics fantastic?
The atmosphere at the Olympic park was just electric.
I have some photos to post later this week.
Maybe now I'll find it into my craft room!!....Not for too long though
as I am off on holiday next weekend.

Today the outrageously talented Shelly is our host over at BBTB2 and has asked us to use
an elephant cricut cut from any cartridge.

If you haven't come here from BBTB2,then do pop over and check out the projects from the
DT ladies as there is some amazing inspiration!


I made this card for my brother-in-law and his fiancee as they have just got engaged.
I like the fun element to it but it may end up as an anniversary card as the rest
of the household don't see elephants as appropriate!!!
The happy couple compete in triathlons....

A close up of my elephant couple,cut from ZooBalloo,inked,sanded and doodled.
Heart from George,grass from Create a Critter.
The sentiment is from Prima and I love it.I didn't have an engagement stamp but thought
this sentiment was just perfect.

Can't wait to see what you create and don't forget we still have Fly Away open for
another week.

I plan to catch up with all my bloggy friends today.
I also have a Guest Design spot later this week and
a fun birthday blog hop.

Hugs
Jayne x

Seriously!!! I would cut that out and it would look so BLAH! I missed the ceremonies but i know I can watch them ~ someone will be replaying them! Can't wait to see the pictures! Did you actually get to go??? That would be AMAZING!

  11. I think this is the most adorable engagement card ever and you should give it to them regardless of what the other family members think. They'll love it. I thought of you the whole time I was glued to the TV watching the Olympics and how fantastic it must be to be right there while it was all going on.
