Good morning.   Sorry I haven't been around everyone's blog or posted anything for a good few days, but it have been busy firstly having to work full time and I have been helping the girls and their friends in the Pony Club quiz team make up a collage.  They have got through to the Nationals that take place this weekend down in Warwick.  One of the things they have to do is make a collage of what the Pony Club means to them, now Anna and Hannah the groom at works daughter wanted to do something different where as the other two thought just a load of photographs of different events. This is where I was asked to help to put there ideas together and keep the peace.  This is what I got them to do.

My main in put was to give them ideas of how to put it together using all their ideas, Anna and Hannah wanted to use a jumper, but that would have meant using one of the their jumpers which they need to wear, an old one wouldn't have the badges so!  I just happened to have some of Lidl black card left two sheets were used, I photographed a jumper to get the logo, but wanted it to have a bit of a look like it was a proper jumper so made a little runkle in the front of the jumper before I took the photo.   Printed off the logo had to go over the black with felt tip to get it black enough, did the same with the sleeve badges just cut them as squares and stuck them in place.  Made the shirt collar from white card and printed out the tie and cut it down to fit. I also die cut lots of letters out I the Pony Club colours for them to use . We printed out another tie badges etc. then they did the rest which I 
think they have done very well considering Anna is 12 and Hannah 15 , they hand wrote a couple of to do list of things that they would need to take on days away with their ponies, a nice touch I thought, so here's hoping the others  like it, then again they weren't prepared to come and help put it together that was down to Anna and Hannah.  
Off now to finish off a gift order this has caused it's own problems as it's for a high profile London lady and I was asked to use very good products, now if I could get Molton Brown products I would have used them , but Edinburgh is to far to go to.  So I have done my best.  I have also got a nappy cake to make, a new granny bag and another little gift all to be done by the end of the day.  Thank goodness I am off on holiday.   
Have a good day.  Thank you for all your comments on my pop up card.

  17. This was a very clever way to take the girls' idea of using their jumper and making a collage. I can see that it created quit a bit of work for all involved. Kudoes to each of you, cause this looks so professional, expresses what they feel about their pony club, and I'm loving that stand-up white collar. Good for them, that they had you to provide some ideas & help with their project. TFS & Hugs

  18. I love this Hazel and just a perfect collage, great keepsake.

    Have a super Easter weekend, hugs Erika.
