By The Cute and Girly Challenge 3

Wow...well this is amazing I cant believe this but I am actually about to set my first challenge!! I am so excited!! Jane asked me to host this months challenge over at By The Cute and Girly

I have chosen " Lets Go To The Movies " as a theme..and we all had a lot of fun behind the scenes creating some makes to give a little inspiration!

I do have quite a lot of piccies to show you!! So I think this month I will gradually post my makes through the month. So here are the first few.....

In case you hadn't guessed.. the inspiration for this little diary was "Calender Girls"

I have used a "Kanban - Loralie/Paris" Kit from QVC to make this little book!! I got baught a little bind it all tool for my anniversary a couple of years ago...and I have not used it nearly as much as I should have, so it was great getting it out and having a play!

My next make is a cross Stitch.. The film " Singing in the rain"

The Cross Stitch is worked from a kit "Bothy Threads - What a Glorious feeling" I enjoyed doing this, cross stitch was a first Love, and used to be my main hobby before papercrafting took over!! I do however always have one on the go, I normally do it when I am watching TV or when I am on a long journey!

Anyhooo... As I said, I shall be back very soon with some more makes, but for now, please pop across to By The Cute and Girly and have a look at the examples that the DT have come up with, they are truly inspirational !! Also there are some amazing prizes on offer!! Please come along and join in, can't wait to see how you all interpret this theme!!

Hugs Juls
