PaperTake Weekly Challenge - Sarah kay with fimo

This week over at the Papertake weekly Challenge    the challenge is a sketch and a great one it is too ..
No what matter what sketch i do  i always manage to cover it up with embellies - i really should 
try the style of less is more , me thinks ! but i can't help myself . Once the stash box is out
I'm afraid i get carried away !  heheeee .
Here is my DT Papertake weekly challenge make.


The papers are from Prima Reflections , from charmed cards and crafts and ive added a bit of red copic to it , just to make it a bit 
redder on some of the leaves to match the colouring on the stamp. I also added some stickles to the paper too. This is a great way of getting all your colours matching.


Who needs to buy card charms when you make them ?
Alittle bit of fimo clay goes along way !

Please take a moment see the DTs fab creations
I'd like to enter this into these challenges also.

"Wanted , home for Fairies !" blog candy !

Well . well , well what have we here ? Why its a flock of fimo fairies ! heheeeee
I spent yesterday trying to  finish these little pests off with my daughter Georgie....and my they were fiddly little blighters ! they are about height of a 2p piece !
The ones standing are just waiting for Georgie to put the earring finding in the eyepin.

Georgie my daughter and i made them for a purpose -

Why did we make them ? Well as most of you know I have two daughters both with aspergers.My eldest is Georgie , and she loves singing .. shes 22. Shes not a bad little singer either and is so confident . Singing is in her blood - her Grandad was Ronnie Hilton - who had a number 1 (no other love )  and various top number  charts hits many many years ago - some of you may remember the song " a mouse lived in a windmill in old Amsterdam" ? well that was her Grandad ! Sadly he died a number of years ago , if he was alive today i am sure he would have helped her alot .. But as it is she has to help herself - so she went to enrol at music collage and found out she needed to be grade 5 in music... which she isnt that high - so what does the little trouper do ? Not to be  put off , she went and started piano lessons - once a week - she funds this by helping her Nana out .

Unfortuntly she doesnt have a piano to practice on - Her church allow her to use thiers to practice and one of the church members very kindly lets Georgie goe around to her house and practice on thiers too. This is not ideal . so she is saving for a digital piano ( (£400) , it has to be digital because of her elderly neighbours and it has headphones .

Well i cant sing , so i cant help her there - but i can help her by  teaching her fimo and making stuff with her     and
giving a shout out on my blog for her ! lol.


Do not be fooled by thier cuteness - They do need a constant supply of glitter so you will need to keep an eye on your stash !
Molly and Mavis are particually troublesome - Mavis has obviously had to much of
the fairy falling down water ....... hmmmmmmm .

I have been teaching my daughter Georgie how to make earrings , cakes , ice cream cones etc

Whilst i had the fimo out i thought i would make
an apple charm for the  topper and some matching earrings.The apples on the earrings have been munched into  hee heeee !!!

Georgie said i should have put alittle worm wriggling out of them !
On the topper Ive used mainly scraps .

Dangling from the prima flower is the chained fimo clay apple. (intact !)
