Up close and personal.



This is my entry for Kraft it up this month.
I wanted to try some thing more minimalist since my last LO (see post below) is maybe a bit OTT lol.
I Love really simple LOs but its not something Im very good at and Id love to do them better so here is my attempt a the minimalist look.
My Jeddy is such a funny boy. Hes our little risk taker, Evil Knievel eat your heart out.
He loves a bit of rough and tumble but at the same time he is very soft and affectionate and loves kisses and 'cuggles' (as Jeddy would say) with Muma and Daddy.
We are spoilt for gorgeous kisses and cuddles at the most unexpected and random moments and we LOVE it!
So yes he is gritty, gutsy and full-on at times but hes also a total softy so I thought the butterfly and doily paper was appropriate too.
OK Im going to try squeeze a few more challenges in while the shops shut so stay tuned

Before I go I just wanted to say THANK YOU every one for your lovin' on my last LO.
Your lovely comments really make my day. TFL.
