Little photo catch up

The photo prompt for Suzie 365 day 91 was 'games', so this is 3D noughts and crosses:


Next day was day 92: costume - all I could think of was this 2 piece that I occasionally wear:


And for today's prompt for day 93 the subject is childhood. Here is a photo of a mug that commemorates the coronation of King George VI in May 1937 - just about at the beginning of John's childhood (he was born right at the end of 1936):


and here is something from my own childhood - every child in Essex was given a book like this to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II (I was six later that year):


I wonder what tomorrow's prompt will be?!

Guest designer - Paper Creations Ink

I have the privilege of joining the team on Paper Creations Ink for challenge 22: natural materials - to use materials such s burlap, twine, cork, twigs, leaves etc.

I used Catherine's sketch given for Crafting for all seasons23:

The honeybee image was supplied by Shelly's images, who are sponsoring the challenge - the winner will receive a $9 gift voucher. I printed on to textured DCWV card and coloured with copics. This and the surrounding mat were die cut with nesties and the edges distressed with tea dye DI. This was then mounted on to a cork circle. The embossed panel behind it was run through the cuttlebug with the Creative expressions crackle folder distressed with tea dye. Running across the bottom is some distressed woodgrain card that I had left over from making this card wrapped around with some ribbon and some raffia. I then added some little flower brads, skeleton leaves and flowers held with a pearl brad.
