Show the way Tilda, for simply Magnolia

Good afternoon sweeties!
Well It's a darn sight drier in the old kitchen tonight! No thanks to the builders mind you, got a call from them at 7pm saying "can't do anything it's too wet"!!!!!! Well Duh!!!! that's the problem!! Luckily hubby was home and managed to tape some plastic bags over the vent and that seems to have done the trick! Well I did do my baking last night! Just made some peach melba slices, bloomin' lovely! Although I do think they're a wee bit on the sweet side, but then this is the first baking I have done since school, so not so bad!
Well onto this weeks challenge over at Simply Magnolia, and it every bodies favourite, well certainly mine ;)
Anything goes!
I have used show the way Tilda and North Pole Whitey Polar Bear, He's soo cute!! both from the latest collection and I have masked them onto the heart with  background text, from an older collection! I thought Tilda could be pointing to the heart! I have also used Cheese cloth, a heart doily and pearls form my stash and the lovely tulle trim is from the ribbon girl.
The challenges I would like to enter are:
Tilda's Town - anything goes
Midweek Magnolia's - lots of layers
7 kids challenge - anything goes
Well that's all from me folks! have a wonderful evening!

Raindrops keep falling on my...........cooker!?!?!

Good afternoon peeps!
Well after our new house (built 5 yrs ago) needed to have all the exterior walls chipped off and re-plastered etc. in the summer, now in the first heavy rain since then, the water is pouring down our kitchen wall!!! Aaarrrgghhh!!!!! Of course this had to happen on a Saturday and trying to get hold the the builders is a nightmare!!  So we are just waiting for someone to call back! Luckily it hasn't affected my oven as thanks to "The great British bake off" I am going to try my hand at some baking this afternoon! I am hopefully (very hopefully, I am a terrible baker!!) making "peach melba squares"  and maybe some Dorset apple traybake! Yumm!!!
Well onto this  fortnights challenge over at Basic Grey challenges Which is:
Sparkle and Glamour!
Right then sorry had to leave again as water pouring into kitchen! I have used this wonderful uptown girls stamp from stamping bella. The papers are Basic grey Eva, I have used oodles of glitter, some clear gems and some silky crush ribbon from the ribbon girl.
The challenges I would like to enter are:
Simon says stamp - anything goes
7 Kids challenge - anything goes
Well that's all from me today, think I need to go sit in a dark room with a glass of something!
