Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

Bad Girls Feb Kit and another Challenge!

So another Challenge blog! Category Stories. The challenge was to create a LO using the idea of Precious things. I decided to go for those little things that really mean something to me.
Broomus: mum's teddybear
My comfort blanket: I have had it since I was 3
Bumbalion: The last christmas present from my grandad before he died
My earrings: Dad had the diamonds from Mum's engagement ring made into earrings for me for my birthday the year after Mum died
Grandad's blanket: He had this over his legs the last time I say him.
Thumper:He was my Nan's and for as long as I can remember I have loved him. He plays Brahams Lullaby,
Used the Feb SFIO kit

My Feb kit from Bad Girls finally arrived (Customs GRRRRRR!) Anyway Wendy (the Boss!) had made a lovely little Mini Book using one of the sheets of card and it inspired me to do mine. It's all my favourite stories and photos from my 3 years at University I practically used the whole kit! Now that is unheard of for me. I added the acrylic covers, cut the pages to different sizes. The ribbons sticking out of the top are all tags that are inbetween the pages with journalling on.
I had a great trip down memory lane and I am glad that all the photo's and stories and in the one place.
