CES Challenges 48...Water It!

This week seems to have flown by and I haven't done half the things I should have done...the intense heat on Tuesday & Wednesday put paid to any was so hot upstairs it would have been madness to stay up there...even sleeping was difficult...I hope it stays a bit cooler so that I can get crafty this weekend...I've got some scrummy new papers to play with!

We have a lovely new challenge for you over at CES Challenges today...WATER IT...basically anything to do with water...sea...rain etc. My fab teamie Caroline has chosen the theme and if you need any inspirational ideas pop on over to the challenge blog to check out the DT cards...they are pretty cool and all so very different!

I finally broke out my glossy accents and used them on the sunglasses of this cute couple....the pic hasn't really picked it up that well but in real life they are really shiny!

Emma is offering a fab £10 gift certificate to spend online at her store Crafty Emma's and don't forget that she currently has a huge sale on with up to 80% off some products!

There is also still time to enter Emma's birthday candy...the draw runs until Saturday 13th August and will close at 10am with the winner being announced shortly
here to enter.
