Fun, fun, fun!!!

Hello everybody!

A fun post today... I've made a tag combining Designs by Ryn's Abstract leaf set, and Tim Holtz's Pattern pieces set.


I love finding different ways to make dresses to go on the dummy!

Some of you may know that I'm a teaching assistant in a primary school, well sometimes we have to do arty-crafty stuff like displays and in our class we also have a Wendy house.  This Wendy house is amazing, to date it has been turned into an observatory, an Anderson shelter, the crows nest on the Titanic, a Victorian workhouse.... and now it has been turned into the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from the wonderful Harry Potter books!!  It took my fellow teaching assistant (Karen) and I 2 days to complete and the children LOVE it!  Bless them.


What do you think?  We're really quite impressed with ourselves for making turrets out of old cardboard boxes and sellotape lol!   Thank you for visiting, big hugs! xxxxx

Hey Wendy, I am a big fan of how you dress the dummy with stamps that I would never think of as clothing. You've got such imaginative ideas! Also LOVE the Hogwarts school! The kids are lucky to have a creative influence like you in their lives. Wishing you a fantastic Christmas Wendy!!!
