Crafty Catz DT - Material Girl (or BOY in this case)

Hello everyone. I hope you are all well and enjoying the sunny weather we have been getting recently. I have once again had a mad week and feel like I have been rushed off my feet yet don't seem to have done much - if you know what I mean, lol.

I am late again with my DT card for the Crafty Catz Challenge blog and I must apologise to all the other girls. Hopefully, things will settle down this weekand I 'll be a bit more organised (at least, that's the plan, lol).

Anyway, without further ado, it was Lindseys turn to set the challenge and she has chosen the theme of 'Material Girl' - to use material somewhere on your project. So, I have used some lace around my project. My uncle and his girlfriend had another baby on Wednesday so I thought I would make them some 'Baby Jam' - a complete baby outfit jammed into a jar!

Babygro, vest, mittens, hat and bib from Tesco;
Plastic container from Sainsburys;
Lace and Flowers from Mum's stash;
Nesties and Cuttlebug.

Cute Card Thursday: Textin' Crazy;
Paper Play: Anything Goes;

I actually got the idea from a shop I was in the other day in Stockbridge area in Edinburgh. They had lovely wee jars and they just had a plain label and a wee baby outfit jammed into them and they were lovely ( and very expensive, lol) so I thought I'd give it a go, but I had to use some of Mums stash because I had to do it as soon as I got back from the shops, lol.

The bottom of the jar has a label with the 'ingredients' list. and Jack very kindly, pointed out to me that I have put the wrong birthdate on the top - oh dear. Will need to fix that.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and look. Please check out the rest of the DTs fantastic work and I can't wait to stop by and see what you create to play along with us this week.
