I am oficially hopeless!! I made my entry for the last Embellish challenge (that closed yesterday) and totally forgot to post it!! How many times have I done this?!! Time to turn over a new leaf methinks!!

So this was the challenge:

I've been needing a new pen pot for my desk and after I recently made some muffins using these -

I decided to alter the empty pot.... add some pretty papers, some ink and stamps and it became this:

Recipe: (All Papertrey Ink)

Stamps - Polka Dot Basics
Card - Kraft
Papers - Pretty Pastels
Other - Butterfly Die/Rick Rack Die/True Black Twill pens now have a home :)

I hope you all have a great Friday - I'm driving to Swansea today to sing in a concert this evening. We have a 3 hour rehearsal this afternoon, then perform tonight. I lived in South Wales for four years (I was at Cardiff University) and driving back over the bridge brings back many happy memories!

Hey, it was YOU who reminded ME to get my butt into gear on this challenge LOL! Ah well, even though you missed the deadline it's still a fabulous idea! I know my pens would be much happier in this home than randomly scattered across my table like they are now!
Hope your concert goes well!

Kate, I am in love with your polka dotted butterflies!

Awh it's my turn to say why didn't you tell me hee hee - I would have loved to come and see you sing :D where are you performing ? ;D

I think I wanted to be a star but my voice, body and dancing abilities did not agree LOL!

Break a leg my lovely and I am in love with your perfect pot too.

Love the pen pot - looks lovely next to those beautiful turquoise moleskines!

Hope you have had a lovely time in Swansea - I was at Cardiff Uni too - loved South Wales and often wish I was back there.

Have a fab weekend
