My favourite things

Howdy peeps,
Well I didn't realise it has been so long since my last post, seriously where does the time go?
So much has been happening. One piece of great news is that Hubby has started work, YIPPEE, so I guess that's one bit of "normal" life back.
My little man, Luke, received an honour certificate last week for all his hard work.
Leigh-Anne went to Karate Grading Sunday just gone and received her orange belt. I have popped some photos onto my sidebar.
Craige is still a cheeky little guy and finds everything funny and just goes with the flow.
The builders have been round this morning to inspect the damaged wall, again, and have said it will be another 6 to 8 week before they can start work, as the wall is still too wet POOP! One day I might have my spare room back!
Well that's enough about me, onto my entry for the challenge over at Craft Yours Days Away. The challenge is to use your favourite things.
I have made this folder following the instructions in the Magnolia Ink Magazine (I had a little splurge). The twins have a party to attend on Saturday, so for the gift I'm going to buy a movie ticket and thought this was a great idea and yep, I have used Tilda, cause she is my fav.
I have coloured her with my other fav. Promarkers. I made the roses following the instructions also in the Magnolia Ink Magazine, so much fun but very fiddly.
All the card stock and ribbon are from my stash. The butterflies are done with some Jac paper, glitter and a EK Sucess punch. The initial "T" for Tia was done with my Cuttlebug, Jac paper and glitter.
Well that was a mighty long post hope I didn't bore you to tears.
I must be off the washing machine has finished it's cycle. Take care thanks for stopping by
