It's FFFriday, time to share an old crafting project.

Good morning all, and how are you this Friday?
It's that time of the week again, doesn't come around quickly?
Time to share an old crafting project with me, all just for fun and the love of sharing crafting.
Today I have a couple of projects for you and neither a card.
My first project is a calender.

For this I have used K & Co papers Berry Sweet and orange American craft textured card.  I have also used Spellbinder nestabilities Long classic rectangles and Long classic scalloped rectangles, labels 15, half moon circles (to make the flowers) and finally fancy tags.  Martha Stewart punch doily lace, pearls from K & Co and ribbon from stash. 
The flowers were made cutting the circle dies into a spiral and then rolling back together tightly and the swirls were cut from one of the fancy tag dies.  On the back I attached a smaller rectangle of chipboard covered in paper so that the calender will stand.  The plastic pages are from a mini book set and the calenders can also be bought in packs.
The picture was from a royalty free photograph site on line as I have boys and I wanted a cute little girl. 

My second share is these wee cuties.....

For these little shoes I have used K & Co Berry Sweet papers, aren't they cute!  Great to make with double sided papers and very easy to do.
You can find the template here.  Just perfect for a new baby instead of a card.

I would love it if you join me sharing an old craft project.  In order that I can see your work too please leave a comment below and I will visit you all, for a nosey!

It only remains for me to wish you all the very best for the weekend.  
My hubby has been away working all week so I have been home for the boys.  He used to always go away but this is the first time for ages.  I've quite enjoyed the peace and that wrong?!
Tomorrow I'm back on work on a later shift and he has control at home, role changing!
Have a super weekend and if you get chance to craft, enjoy!  x

Absolutely STUNNING projects, love them.
I remember doing those shoes with my Craft Class, it was great fun.
Glad you enjoyed the time without OH being at home. I remember when John was working I really liked my weeks on my own. Love him to bits but yes, the freedom to eat what I liked, when I liked. Pop in and out at any time not worrying that I had to be back for mealtimes etc:-
Have a great day

Erika, I know how you feel about enjoying hubby being away, like yourself mine was away weeks / months at a time while in the army and later with his work, you get so use to it - well I did. Now that he is home 24/7 takes getting use to.

Now those little shoes are so cute, Patricia made these for me for my nappy cakes at one point. Love your calender?
Don't work to hard and drive safely. Hazel x

Two gorgeous projects Erika, love all the pretty papers...I have a template to make the booties but have never actually made them - perhaps I'll remedy that this year when I become a great Aunt for the first time.
My hubby only went away very occasionally for work, I did enjoy the peace! So no not wrong :) Enjoy your weekend. Carol x

Hi Erika, these are so pretty, fab projects, I especially love the little shoes. Strangely my Oldie is shoes too.
I must say I love my time on my own, Alistair has never worked away from home, it's his hillclimbing and canoeing that takes him away, lovely to see him when he gets back with all his stories.
Hope work goes in fast for you tomorrow, have a great weekend, hugs Kate x
