Start as I mean to go on with Challenges!!



Well I have started one of my New Year's resultions - to join in some more challenges!!

Over at Moving Along with the Times it is an open theme & to use a past sketch.
I have used Hazels sketch from challenge #22
They have 3 fab prizes on offer so do please pop along & play!

I am also entering this into Susie's Sassy Challenge which is a theme of "Friends old & new"
Susie's prize is a GDT spot so pop along & join in the fun there too!

I have had to sneakly photo this card as it is for my hubby's birthday on Monday.
We don't usually do cards because he doesn't usually bother but I was inspired to make this one with the challenges.

Can you see the 2nd photo has an extra bit of another pic at the bottom? For some reason my pictures aren't loading onto my laptop properly. I've had the camera & memory card for ages so don't know why its suddenly being silly!!
If anyone has any thoughts please let me know ..thankyou x

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁




About me...

......I thought its probably time I should update my About me info! So here goes.... I am currently 36 years old (as of June 2017) I live in Selby with my husband and son who is (at present) 4 and a half years old.... my son not husband πŸ˜†
I suffer with CFS/ME, Fybromyalgia, anxiety and depression. They take up a large amount of my energy and time along with my family so I need an out, something for me and that is Ellephantastic. It's my creative life. Being creative, being inspired by other peoples creativity and inspiring others with my creativity are what keep me going. As well as the love I have for my family, but that goes without saying because who couldn't love this dude?

I love all kinds of crafting and creativity, knitting, art, baking, photography, paper crafting....anything really!
I have spent a lot of time the past 2 to 3 years working on myself and trying different avenues. E.g businesses, counselling, medication, diet.....all sorts! Every time though I have end…

Ellephantastic Cakes

Froggy I thought I would share with you today some cakes I have made over the last year and a bit. Who doesn't love cake? Right! Froggy was a chocolate cake decorate to match my niece's frog themed birthday.
Baby Giraffe Baby giraffe was a treacle sponge cake made for my niece who loves Giraffes Really pleased with how it turned out.


Rose Garden
These are cupcakes and I made a box for them by decorating a large cake box and making my own insert. I made them for my mum as a surprise  They are treacle cupcakes ....yum!




Chocolate Cakes All the cakes I have made have been for my family 
Hope I haven't made you hungry!!
