Pick n Mix & Smells!

What amazing sunshine ( in the UK at least) and it made me think of summer, sailing, socialising, strawberries and snacking ( well, ‘picnicking’ didn’t fit with the all the ‘s’s!)
This ‘love-y’ card was inspired by the ‘Float My Boat’ set from Lawn Fawn & is available over at Make The Day Special.
The lovely colours are inspired from the Let’s Polka paper ( also by Lawn Fawn) and I’ve simply added in some vellum and stitching and some Stampin’Up! vellum.

The photo makes the project look cream coloured but hopefully the second pic shows that it’s a lovely clean white.

Apparently research has shown that giving adults a packet of Crayola crayons and getting them to smell them, evokes all sorts of childhood memories. There are unique links with smells and memories. When I smell alcohol ink it makes me think of a certain time and projects. The gorgeous smell of photopolymer stamps triggers other memories but mostly at our house there are a whole mix of niffs. Some are significantly more pleasant than others!! I think all children should come with pegs. Beautifully decorated ones that you can slip onto your nose when loading the washing into the washing machine!
However, when I walk towards my craft room I’m greeted with the most exquisite aroma; a bunch of stunning pink hyacinths. It makes me smile every time I pass them. Thanks to my lovely friend Mara, it helps mask other odours!
What’s your favourite smell? ..and is it craft related?!!

Better go, have 5 kiddos to pick up from school and then make a whole other batch of smells as I prepare tea!
I think beans on toast might smell perfect 😉!

See you when I’ve created the simplest tea possible!
