WOYWW #52 Celebration and My holiday week and creations!

First I want to say a quick congratulations to my brother and his family who are expecting a third boy at the end of August, that will be nephew number 8, still no girls in sight. I can't wait to meet him.

Ok so here we are, even though I am pretty new to WOYWW! I wanted to join in with the week 52 celebration, Congratulations to Julia Dunnit, the wonderful woman who started this great fun weekly Jaunt around creative blogger's craft area's, a world which I am loving being a part of.

My celebration piece is a door plaque for our craft room, inspired buy all the delicious stash and art I have seen on my trip around all you WOYWWers and here it is:
As I actually finished the plaque a while ago I wanted to show you what was actually on my work desk, so the real answer was at first my mum lol as we share a side of the table and she was working on it lol, then I decided to make myself a space downstairs, I got as far putting a Matt down when 2 little boys wanted to play with their craft planet kit, so the new answer to WOYWW? is.........
...........................................2 little boys and a crafts planet kit LOL.
....and here is what we made, a spider!!!
Robbie named him Bruce after the doggy next door.
Here is a closer look, we had lots of fun making him.
This is a set of ATC's I made this week as part of a giveaway which is over on Vic's blog here. I love Graphic 45 papers at the moment.
I enjoyed making them and I have to say, 2 of my fav. things right now are my Tiny Attacher, and my Tim Holtz film strip ribbon.
We got the boys some new summer clothes, here they are trying on one of the outfits.
Here is a picture my mum took, I sent my nephews, ben and Jake a small cuddly Gruffalo each, which mum said they absolutely love, so she took a picture of them hugging them while their mum read the story to them. I wonder how they will take to there new little brother when he arrives!?!?!?!
During my week off we went to The Edinburgh Playhouse to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which was fabulous, I was really impressed.
Here is the Layout that I managed to get finished at our crop last week, I really like it but I keep thinking something is missing!!?????
I love these pins and yummy Prima's
and these Jenny Bowlin Butterflies are fabby too.
And here is the finished piece.

This is a set of ATC's I am working on, I have overlapped these pieces of paper and now I am pondering where to go next.

That is all from me for today, if you managed to make it through to the end then well done and happy creating.
