Monochrome and Lapland News


PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE - MONOCHROME

Thanks everyone who joined us last week, cannot believe how many entries we had and I loved seeing all your creations. Don't forget to join us this week where our theme is MONOCHROME, my fellow DT members have been much more adventurious than me and they have some fantastic cards on the blog in colours I would never thought of using.

This great image is just like me when I am going partying over Christmas (WISH!!)
she has been coloured with Black Soot Distress Inks and Glamour Dust has beeb sprinkled here and there. The DP are by imaginise and the fab flower is from Poppicrafts great Poinsettia Kit. Corners are a Cuttlebug Die, Pearls and Ribbon from stash.




We had a great day yesterday at Lapland UK, Owen enjoyed every minute of it. We were so lucky with the weather it was still quite warm even in the early evening. Once it got dark the place was absolutely magical. These are a few of the pictures I took, unfortunately I was so engrossed I kept forgetting to take pictures.



Here are Owen and Richard helping Mother Christmas make Gingerbread Men, Doesn't he look cute in his chefs hat, they get to take home the gingerbread men, Owens only got as far as the car and had been eaten before we got out of the car park. He loved the ice rink for the first five minutes but soon got fed up with falling over so he came and stood with Nanny whilst Richard and Gemma had a great time showing off.



This is Farther Christmas's toy factory where they had to help finish off the rocking horses.
