2nd Birthday..........

Today is my Grandsons 2nd birthday so after work today we're off for cake and balloons, (when I say cake and balloons I mean eat cake and pop balloons as balloons are a bit rubbery to eat). Ethan is into Chuggington, I might have mentioned this before ......he's having a Chuggington party and I think most of his pressies will be Chuggington trains etc.God knows where those 2 years have gone, hes grown so fast and is now chattering away and telling us what to do.....bossy boots.
I was going to do a Chugginton card but being as everyone else is sending him one I thought I'd make him something different, the image is from Penny Black and the papers are from Papermania and I've kept the colours shades of brown.....so its quite a grown up card for a 2 year old but I love the image, nostalgic.

Yesterday I went to the Artisan show, I must admit I usually go to shows with my daughter and make a day of it doing the workshops and having a good shop unfortunately they changed the days of the show this year and she had to work so I met up with my blogging/crafty friend Annette.....she told me it was her first show, I bet it won't be her last, it was nice meeting some of the ladies who have great blogs......did a workshop with Jennie from The Artistic Stamper........we altered a suitcase, I did another workshop with Annalise from The Artist Trading company........she showed us different techniques with alchohol inks and the final workshop was with Jean Hardy from Crafty Individuals.....we made a sweet little hanging and the flower brooch was a make and take at Paper Artsy


Have a great weekend
