Two more of my 365 photos and we should be up to date:
23.2: Spent an evening with all my lovely Body Shop girls so I took a photo of the logo on this towel Jen gave me.
24.2: Gary the Snail that sits on my shelf!
21.2: Jakey trying to eat a donut without licking his lips!
22.2: Made my fabric flowers
The problem with wearing myself out this morning is that I had to rest this afternoon and therefore am now wide awake!! Maybe I'll see if I can get into a good book.
Some sweet little journalling blocks with some scraps from my GoGo kit. It was quite theraputic and I felt a lot more relaxed after doing this.
I also bought myself a little happy!! It wasn't my fault, it was Julie Kirk's. I check out her super funky blog regularly and she had posted about these fabulous quirky kits which just make me smile, and lets face it if they make me smile today they have to be worth buying (especially when they are only £4!) I went for the cupcake option but the russian dolls are so cute too, can't wait til it arrives.
I also have to tell you about the ongoing saga of the Stampin Up parcel. When I returned from another mammoth dentist appt on tuesday I was really excited to hear that it had arrived, I was then gutted to discover that it was less than half of the order and mine wasn't part of it. After chasing the rep then waiting for her to chase up the distribution centre in Germany it turns out there was a technical hitch and they are trying to sort it asap. They were very apologetic but what a bummer!! I want my stash!
I think I've chatted enough for this evening. Ironically I had organised to do my first mornings voluntary work at my old Primary School tomorrow so after a little agonising I decided I should carry on, I'll need the experience for when I do get a place, so I think a good nights sleep is in order if I am going to spend a morning with 30 4 year olds!
ps I haven't forgotten its 365 time, I'll share tomorrow!
Still no sign of the Stampin Up parcel, fingers crossed for tomorrow. Will give me something nice to look forward to after the dentist.
Have put a load of stuff for sale in the UKS market place so hopefully will have some extra money for stash soon!! Want to buy some more Thickers before the sale at Creative Craft World finishes on saturday!
I used the rainboots paper from the Daydream collection. I condensed the sketch down a bit as I have a need for white space! I made some fabric flowers which I love and you must be impressed that I have done machine and hand stitching on one layout!
Fingers crossed, I love prizes xx
I used AC Amplified papers cos I just adore the colours. It also gave me a chance to use one of the little embellies I made a while ago.The other required elements were a heart which I added with my bejeweller.....
And a flourish/swirl.
Am quite pleased so off now to post a link on the DG blog.
I used loads of scraps and a piece of my new addiction, Kraft Cardstock. I wanted to make it a loud and clashy as I could, to highlight the unfashionable theme. I was pleased with the title too as my Dad loves The Kinks and it is a play on one of their song titles. I'm so glad shell suits went out of fashion!!
17.2: Martyn showing off his birthday present.
18.2: I just loved how Coco ate her biscuit with two hands, so sweet.
I've had a really busy week so the photos have come quite easily. Have scrapping plans for tomorrow including another sketch from the OA blog.
I've been a busy bunny today cos I've also done this layout using the sketch on the OctoberAfternoon blog.
This was a great challenge as I always love working with OA papers. I especially love the colour combination of the blue with the orange which also picks out the colour of my coat and the snowmans carrot nose!!!
Hope you like
I've been dying to use these photos for ages as they were soooooo cute and the brown and pink of these papers went really well with the outfits the babies are wearing. As you can see mine is quite different to Laura's as I had to adapt it to fit in three photos, but I'm really pleased with it.
Thanks Laura for the inspiration and advice.
And finally a desk big enough for Mum and I to work at.
Not as impressive as some but I like it!
I also did the final 2 layouts for Mollies birthday album. It was her birthday yesterday and Steve and Vick were over the moon with her album, it made it totally worth all the hard work.
Yesterday was Scrapaholix at Kim's. For some reason I just didn't click with the kit at all. So I just faffed about all day! I did do two layouts but wasn't over the moon about either. Part of the kit was flocking powder which I just couldn't bring myself to touch, the stuff is just too messy and puts my teeth on edge!
Finally I promised Connie that I would upload this......
I should get up sometime today!!!
Here is a layout I did a little while ago and forgot to photograph. It was quite an experimental one for me.....I played about with stamping with acrylic paint which I quite enjoyed and I think it looks ok. This photo was from a professional shoot I had a few years ago.
The next one is a practice layout for my sketch collection layout, I wanted to get the feel for it before I did the real thing. I'm actually quite pleased with this one so at least I have a fall back option. It is totally different colours and photos from my real one....
Hope you like them all. I'm off to relax now as I have a headache coming.
