Little Bear JUGS Challenge....


Lots of pictures for you today... I am entering the JUGS (digital) challenge for the first time. How could I not? The ever so clever Lauren Meader of  My Time Made Easy is their sponsor this week. Lauren's blog was the first ever blog I followed... I was totally blown away by her creativity firstly at PTI and then  as she started out on her own offering so many versatile goodies. Her ideas and inexpensive goods have been a blessing to me as I have had to come up with projects week after week for my group of mentally and physically challenge crafters. 
Anyone who follows me will know that I use Digital ..... a LOT!! Partly because I can adapt sizes and keep a multitude of papers, embellies and so much more ... all stored neatly on my computer or on discs.... and partly because it is so hard to get some of the lovely things my friends over in the USA can. We are way behind here when it comes to crafting ...and... very expensive! I have bought goods from the USA but postage can be more than the goods! LOL!

I went with the baby theme again because I love this little image from Meljen's and decided to do a keepsake box too... my own design.....



This time my teddy is holding his "Blankie"..... Is he sweet??


I went with the My Time Made Easy digital papers "Bringing Home Baby"..... they are so darn cute and whilst I could have used all of them, Just a couple on their own are a statement enough. The one things I would say about digital is that you need to realise that different quality card and paper will alter the colours slightly and also I have found this when using different programs on my computer. So if you are unsure - just practice and you can have your own customised papers.



This is the top of my box and again my teddies were printed directly on to Lauren's paper with a little painting on his patches first using paintbrush. The zigzag I just cut from the same paper collection.









I did do a tutorial on this little box Here .. it was my first attempt at a tutorial so if you are interested in making one, I hope you can follow it. You can see some more of my boxes Here and Here.




Pretty lace, ribbons and buttons ..... The tag was printed on my computer too using Ledger paper from Shimelle's Springtime Basics range from Two Peas.

And finally.....
I thought you would like to see a couple of Roses from my garden.... See, the first one was bought for me by my Sister In Law ... should have been yellow... but each year it "does it's own thing" so that some flowers are yellow, some peach and some are like this......




A gorgeous creamy combination of two colours.........

Here's another ... I call it "Raspberry Ripple" 'cos it reminds me of the ice cream......


Till soon my friends.....

Hugs 

Ros
