Pink, Brown and Cream. SCSC #131

Hello everyone and what glorious weather we're having here in the UK at the moment.  Very surprising for a bank holiday weekend don't ya think lol.  I've been decorating a downstairs room and demolishing part of the chimney breast ready for a wood burning stove - can't wait til its all done as my craft stash is going to be very well organised with designated workspace - whoo hoooo!!!

Today we have a super colour scheme challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday.  We'd like to see creations that are predominantly


This was a perfect opportunity to use this fabby image from Karen's Doodles and combine with this rather gorgeous BG papers which I purchased from the Secret Crafter Shop.  Wendy has a lovely range of papers in the store and I'll be going shopping there soon as my supplies NEED replenishing and I shall be purchasing this pad again cos I love it soo much!!

This image is just so adorable and a sign of things to come I reckon!  As those of you that know me well will be aware, I've wanted a cocker spaniel for at least eight years.  Now my own two dogs will be thirteen this year we've decided the time is right to invite another four legged fiend into our family!!!!  I've found a wonderful breeder just up the road from us and recommended by our vet.  He is mating one of his dogs this very weekend so hopefully we will have a new puppy joining us at the end of August!!!!!  Plenty of time to puppy proof the cushions dontcha think rofl.

I'm also going to be dropping my hours at work so I'll have more time for crafting (in between puppy training of course lol).  Wonder if I can train a pup to colour match my ribbons to cards and not run off with my stash rofl.

Please don't forget to check out the fabulous creations by my DT buddies HERE.
