Look At How I've Grown!

I have to confess that I've not had the chance to make a single thing this week. Going back to work was hard after the long and lovely Christmas break! Although I only made the one card (from my last post) whilst I was off, I was a busy little bee. I decided my craft room needed a good dusting and a good clearout and I got most of it done. I just need to sort through the wooden stamps and then I've finished. When I first started stamping I always bought wood backed stamps and I really hated the unmounted rubber ones, but now I never buy the wood backed ones. I keep taking them off the shelf, dusting them and putting them back again but I never use them anymore, so I'm going to be ruthless and re-home most of them.
So because I've no card to share I thought I'd post an up-to-date photograph of Poppy.
Remember this one back in July?

Well now she looks like this.....

Grandad and me had bought her a sit in bouncer with all these toys on it and her Daddy told us "The thing she loves to play with the most is......yep, the manufacturers tag! Typical eh? She's still a Cheeky Monkey!
It was so lovely to see Jon, Sam and Poppy and spend Christmas Day with them.

OK, I'll be back on Thursday for the next Sugar Bowl challenge but I'll try and pop a card on here before then. I have got stuff coloured up I just need to actually make something with them!
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xxx

    Hugs Dianne xx :)

  14. awwwwwwwwwww she's a cutie Elaine!!

  15. She is cute for sure - and interested in tags !!! I can see her getting into Grans "toys" a year from now. Dusting your stamps - now don't you go domestic on me - makes me feel inadequate as a housewife... LOL

  16. Hi Elaine,
    such a cutie who would want to make cards when they have Poppy to ooh and ah over she sure looks content!!
    happy new year to you!

  17. Hi Elaine,
    Wow, hasen't she grown. She is just adorable.
    Thank goodness I don't have to go to work anymore. Don't know where the time goes now!
    Have a lovely weekend

  18. Oh,must be so wonderful to being a grandma. I love those littel people! The always steal my heart.
    hugs Yvonne

  19. You have a gorgeous little granddaughter Elaine, She has such a sparkle in her eyes and doesn't she love the camera, I can't wait to see some scrapbooking pages. :- ) xx

  20. She's going to steal some hearts later on! What a lovely delightful little girl & such a lovely pressie, she probably just wonders what that strange dull looking thing is tagged onto her bright colourful bouncer. Interesting to ask her when she gets older. As to stash - that's brave, I too preferred wood mounted to start, now I'll pretty use any but I HATE poor quality. Well done with the sorting & take care back at work.

  21. Oh, she is so beautiful! :)

  22. She is adorable, and they always so love tags and the gift boxes don't they lol. I took some of my mounted stamps off the wooden blocks to use them. I don't have a lot of strength to get a good clear image but find using them on a rocker block makes it so much easier for me. A rocker block is perspex and curved. Hugs lin

  23. You happy grandmother, it's so much fun with the grandchildren! My grandson also sleeps with me today and I'm looking forward to it.
    Good luck and good health for you, from grandmother to grandmother!

  31. Hi Elaine, ah hasn't she grown, she looks a gorgeous little cutie, typical her playing with the tag, my nephews one Christmas played all day with the boxes their toys came in and ignored the toys totally lol,

  33. Wow, she's absolutely gorgeous. Can't believe how much she's grown! I bought Ben a secondhand jumperoo similar to Poppy's and it was the best thing I ever bought. It means you can actually get something done.
