Silence is golden

Hi everyone, we are back from a lovely few days looking after Charlie although the weather was not great! We got to take Charlie to one of his play groups on Friday, which took me back, some things never change:)
Just going to post my creations very quickly as my laptop is playing up again!
So here is my take on the LIM sketch challenge: Just realised I should have added a sentiment so will post an updated photo later if laptop will allow!

 An Ali Reeve mask and free stamp from Craft Stamper


And here is my lyric tag forthe Quotes and Lyric challenge over at the Craft Barn. The words were Silence and or Dazzle. I chose the Tremeloe's song Silence is golden and used Sheena Douglass's faux leather technique.

 Thanks for visiting!
