5 April 2014


Happy Saturday morning to you, I hope you have some fabby things planned for the weekend. We are off over to Gentleshaw as normal, but as we have been there all week as well I am pooped! Sorry if I haven't been around your blog to say hi, but by the time we have gotten in, showered, eaten tea I am in my bed fast asleep lol! I promise I will catch up with you this week sometime x

The idea for weeks challenge over at My Time To Craft came about because of the gorgeous wolf hybrid that lives at Gentleshaw (he would live here at our house if Katie had a say in matters lol) I decided to do this challenge so I could find a digi of a wolf & use it for my DT creation. Well I looked everywhere but couldn't find one I liked....until I found this one & fell in love!!

Anyhoos on with this weeks challenge which is....


so frogs, wolves, elephants etc!
You need to pop over to the main blog & see what a fab variety of 'wildlife' the DT have used!
