'Elf Noah!'

I thought I'd let you know why I won't be around your blogs for a few days!
When me & Nige got married 14 years ago, we had two girlies under the age of 18mths & didn't really have the money to splash out on a honeymoon. Between then & now its just never felt right leaving the girls behind while we go away, but between the girls deciding & Nige booking.....we are finally having our honeymoon this weekend. Nige has booked the honeymoon suite with a four poster bed. We are stopping slap bang in the middle of an RSPB reserve lol crafty lad he is...
Anyhoos I will catch up with you all next week with some photos I hope!

Its time for a new image release over at Platypus Creek & this release is all about the Cute Christmas Kids! They really are little cuties, make sure you pop over to the main blog today & tomorrow & see what fab creations my teamies have made for this release!

I have used the super cute 'Elf Noah' & I decided to make a tea bag folded tree. I haven't made one for ages, but do like the look of them. Even tho I think this ones a bit big next to Noah!
