Tinsel Tots - La Pashe

Hiya everyone,

We are still having a fab time in Windermere even though the weather has been very up and down.  We are trying to plan our time depending on whether it looks like rain or not!  On sunday we went on a short cruise round the lake and Tayla proceeded to fall asleep after about 10 minutes!

She did however enjoy the road train that we took to get from the car park to the lakeside.  Although she has been very good for the majority of the holiday she has in the last few weeks been very clingy and only wanting her mummy (much to the disappointment of her daddy!)  This wouldn't be too much of a problem if she didn't want picking up all the time.  At over 5 months pregnant I am finding her very heavy and difficult to manage for long periods.

Tayla also enjoyed feeding the many ducks, geese and swans that we found on Lake Windermere - here she is with her Daddy! 
We went to the fun factory today which is an indoor play area which she really enjoyed.  She wore herself out and fell asleep in the car on the way back to the cottage.  This meant mummy could have a little snooze too as I was worn out chasing around after her in there for 2 hours!  We didn't manage to get any decent photos though as she was always on the go!

Anyhoo, back to the card I have to show you today which is a La Pashe sample I made for  the launch on the new Tinsel Tots decoupage last week.  These sheets are great for the young or just the young at heart and are ideal for those who don't like too much cutting out.  The papers I have used are from a Trimcraft paperstack called "Festive Treats".  All I added was some kraft card, a little ribbon, a few pearls and some glamour dust to the image.  The sentiment is also from the sheet.  There are 2 images per sheet of decoupage so they are great value for money.  You can buy a full set from here or you can buy the sheets singly if you have a favourite!

Thanks for looking!
