Good afternoon we have all slept in today so I am behind on all the things I need to do, I have a mountain of ironing to and Sam is waiting to go on the lap top. Later I have a LO to do that is threatening to to turn in to a UFO, I have a lovely photo to scrap but I stated it before the one I have put up today but it didn't seem to work out.

I was thinking the other day as my memory is rubbish I should keep some sort of diary if not for every day as I don't need to be reminded about things like washing up and cleaning the bathroom but for when we have day trips and special occasions.

The LO I have put up today is not completely acid free, I used sticky notes from ASDA and a lot of machine sewing, I'm not the neatest on the machine but it the little mishaps added to the quirkiness. This LO was a pain to do as well it changed a number of times as it did not seem to go in the end I plumped for the sewing.

How are you today? I hope you are well, I am helping the kids with their papers today and then I have a bit of house work to, at some point I will have to fight Sam for a go on the lap top, that's why I am quickly blogging.

The two photos are of the mini book I have been working on, I went scallop mad on this using a circle template to make different size scallops the book was based on the free gift that came with SI last month I used it as a template the quality of the gift was not very good but it created lots of inspiration. The hearts and flowers used on the tops of the page were from a light shade that I picked up in the sale at ASDA a while ago.

I Have Not Vanished Of The Face Of The Earth!

Hi all I hope you are all well! Things have been a bit hectic, Sam's PC blew up so she has been camped out in front of my lap top most of the time, we managed to have a run out just local we went blackberry picking we ended up with a bout 8lb of black berries, we shared them with relatives as Ste's mum can't get out to pick them herself.

I am working on a little book at the mo I should have it finished tonight so I will share.

The photo I have posted today is one from Butterfly World, I was lucky to get some good shots that day and my usually troublesome point and shoot behaved well.

Good morning how are you, all is well here I am helping the kids with their papers today so I will be tired out early today.

Today I have put up a LO of meerkats, the photo was taken at Butterfly world at Preston park just up the road from where I live. The journaling reads "These meerkats at Butterfly world are cute but we felt like letting them free as their pen was so small and the meerkats looked sad." The title was hand drawn, I wrote on the back in reverse and then cut out the title, the first attempt I forgot to reverse the "a" so had redo it but it was not as painful as the snap happy or tulip titles.

Snap Happy

Good day! how are you ? I'm a bit stressed, having a teenage girl is very good for making stress but it all sorted now and I have my nice daughter back and not the daughter of the devil.

I finally got that problem LO done, the basis of it is very simple but making the title was a pain in the end I opted for the using chipboard as template title I will be glad when i can buy some different lettering either stickers or different fonts of chipboard, I know that Tim Holtz is bringing out some fab fonts in chipboard.

Cable Car

Good morning! Yesterday didn't seem to go right, every thing I did sort of went wrong, I woke to find the a wet bundle of clothes in the dryer and I know I had started them off at night, they had gone all musty so I had to rewash them to. Scrapping wise it went a bit wrong to, I had two LO on the go and they should have been finished as the where quite simple LOs but one the title didn't work so now I have to turn the card stock over to redo it all and the other LO is the on I have put up today, this LO was fiddly to stick and went a bit wonky(though the photo makes it look worse) I do like this LO but it was the frustration of trying to get it all strait that took some of the joy out of it. The photo was on took by Sam on her trip to a theme park it will be interesting to see how she scraps hers.

Weaving For A CJ

Good morning I hope you are well today. The sun is shining and there is a bit of a breeze so we are going to make the most of it and have a run out to Preston park so hopefully we can get some nice photos to scrap.

The photos I am putting up today are for a CJ entry on techniques, at first I thought it would be a hard one but with a flash of inspiration it was done, I could of chosen doodling but weaving it was and I enjoyed doing this one. Sam said that we will have give suggestions to the people who have it last as the the techniques will be running out.
