Went to see Taylor Swift in concert last Friday night and it was amazing. She was totally overwhelmed with the audience and the girls had a great night. I really enjoyed her support act, Ryan Sheridan, not often these acts are that good. Tomorrow night Shannon and Sophie are going to see McFly and on Wednesday night we are going to see Westlife. When we got the girls these tickets for Christmas, we didn't realise they were quite so close together.
Anyway, I haven't had any time to do much crafting but got these items made last night and this morning for my mum for Mother's Day. I have missed most of the Mother's Day challenges but think I am still in time for Dream Valley Challenges.
I had made my mum a calendar card for Christmas and she picked the papers, so I thought I would use the same papers and make these for her instead of buying a present as she can be hard to buy for and never asks for anything.
I made a tissue box. This came as plain wood and I altered it with the new amazing Distress Stains from Tim Holtz, think this is my new favourite craft item. I used K & Co Wild Saffron papers and K & Co embellishments.
Two bare wood tea light candle holders, again Distress Stain and K & Co Wild Saffron Papers and some gems and K & Co flowers.
Wooden calendar, Distress Stains and K & Co papers and Gems. Image is one of my favourites, Daisy from Sugar Nellie.
And finally a Papermania word album - Family - K & Co papers and ribbons from stash. I have left it for mum to put on her own photos, etc.
I hope my mum likes her gifts, I am nearly tempted to keep them myself as the colours would go so well in my home.
Hope you are all well and have had a good weekend. Thanks for popping by and visiting.
