LOTV - DT Piece - More Exciting News!

A big hello to you all. Hope you are ready for another weeks challenge over at the the Lili Of The Valley. This weeks theme is "Summer Fun". A pretty open challenge in my opinion but alot of fun. Perfect, considering the weather we have had here in the UK. 

Now I strayed a liitle this week. LOTV is preliminary a card challenge blog but other work can be submitted so hoping with me straying a bit, its all OK. This is for a birthday after all (lol). I found this tutorial HERE for the Diaper Pouch and it all seemed to fall into place. The paper is from my scraps draw so dont know who its from, sorry. Image is Pink cat Studio, stamped onto a scallop from SU punch. Coloured with Promarkers. Little bit of stamping in left corner is a Tim Holtz stamp. My poor Tim stamps have been shelved for far too long and I really must try and play with them again soon! Made the dangling charm, and flowers and sentiment from stash. I filled my pouch with a selection of mints and this will be on its travels very soon. Please do pop along and see what the other DT's have been up to. I've really enjoyed my GDT spot at the LOTV, great challenges and the inspiration from the DT is fantastic and guess what, I have been asked to be a permanent member of the design team, so big thanks to Jacqui and the rest of the gang for letting me stay!
Hospital this morning so wont be around till later in the day, but thanks for visiting and please do leave me a comment so I know you've popped in.
