The Prodigal Son Returns and "The Dress"

Well, DS finally arrived home on Friday evening after a somewhat longer journey than normal - the joys of travelling on a bank holiday!
I'm sure he's grown again - he has grown a beard - due to him being "idle" (his words not mine!) and the fact that he's lost the charger for his electric razor. What he didn't bring was washing (yay!) - he'd apparently done this a couple of days before.
Lovely to have him home - although my laptop keeps disappearing.

"The Dress" is the title of this week's challenge for the DT contest on wescrap. We had to take inspiration from 2 dresses out of a choice of 12. I did my LO yesterday afternoon at AMOM - decided against doing the class "Chocolate Heaven" and cropped instead. Sat beside Diane and she offered help in the form of advice and a steady hand for the punching. Thanks Diane!

Bazzill and Coredinations cardstock.
K&CO "Verbena" papers, alpha and embellie.
Martha Stewart "Round the Edge" punches.
Bazzill InStitchz template and thread.
Prima butterfly vine.
The photo is from Sept. last year when I met up with Bev - we got to know each other through the docrafts forum and discovered she lives only 5 miles from my Dad.

More crafting planned today - a secret project - plus my ATC's for April to pop into envelopes.
Here's the gorgeous ATC I received from Karen.

Hope you're all having a peaceful Easter weekend.

p.s. I'm not going to mention the football - except to say "We was robbed".
