Room,finished,also a tutorial,for,some of you,

Well guys first hope you all had a great mothers,day. I did my son came over in the morning,and we went out, my daughter came, in the afternon and we too went out,and did some shopping,bless there hearts,the presants were awesome flowers,pot plants,teddies,wall,art for my room, but most of all the cards,oh my kids,I know,you all properbly have,lovely words written in your cards,but my kids,always make me cry. They both said,mum you know we love you,and without your support,not only as a mum but as a friend too,we could not be were we are without you. No one,could ever wish for a better mum,you are always,there and we so love you.
Bless them.
I also want to thank,Kym,for adding to my list of followers,bless you hun,another talented lady,
Well thought I would show you first,my room starting with the colur I had to cover,the walls took ages along with the ceiling just got my bed to move in now,and hang my wall art up then its my craft room,to do next which I am starting this week.

The wardrobe, and the drawers in the corner,were in a terrible state,so I got some special,paint and coated it,3 times,came out brilliantly,really chuffed with it,so what do you think?

Now for the tutorial,you some of you asked for mini,books,sorry this is long,

I have used,Kaiser Kraft Papers,and some free images I got ,from a magazine to decorate this is another wee book which will go out to one of my winners.
Any problems,let me know and I will try to help I am going to send,the winners,a piece of the card,already folded and cut,so they can have that as a copy,if anyone else would like,one leave a note in the comment and I will get one sent out to you hugs,cheryl xx.
Nettie hun,do not forget,to email me if you would like one of these books,as you were one of my winners,
Thought I may as well enter my wee book,into some challenges,

Kat said...

Sounds like you had a lovely Mother's Day Cheryl. My son and younger daughter came and stayed on Saturday. I got cards and a big gift bag full of goodies from the 3 of them - wine, sweeties, more sweeties, Fentimans cola and ginger beer, pate, savoury crackers, Yankee Candle car jar air freshener (?), and my favourite cinnamon Yankee Candles. I think the girls have been shopping in a lovely deli in Crieff where my older daughter lives! I think the car air freshener is for the benefit of the dogs lol!
Thanks for the great tutorial. It's really clear and I'm really looking forward to getting my mini book from you.
