Wow...it's Saturday again, time is flying past! Thankfully with the girlies being 16 & 17 now they mainly want money for Christmas, except for the few things they have asked for. Didge wants a 'How to Draw People' book, to help with hands. She is really good at drawing but can't do hands lol! So that's been delivered already & Katie asked for a 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' t-shirt which I have ordered. The rest they can get themselves in the sales, other than a tenner each on bits & pieces that's them sorted as they both asked for money!

Anyhoos, on with today creation, which is for My Time To Craft. This week we have gone totally away from Christmas. The theme is.....

Claudia is such a sweetheart!
