Hi all, I hope you are well, things are not to bad here I'm still feeling a bit under the weather but never mind there is scrapping to be done.

I have lot of photos to put up today, this was the last CJ in the current round, I'm sad that its nearly finished so I made this one the most fiddly, I love the final outcome but now I don't want to send it of.
This was inspired by a little fathers day mini book on two peas but the final piece looks totally different.
The theme for the CJ was colours, I chose Christmas colour as Christmas is my fave time of the year and as it gets nearer I start get happy fuzzy feelings of excitement.
All the tags are cut out using the empty sheet of tags for a template also I used tags made with the big shot, I know is a terrible pun but you could say that this entriy is tagtastic.

I have had a mega good idea for an autumn mini book that I will share just as soon as it gets going all I can say I will be using laminating pockets which will be fun as I don't have a laminator so I will be ironing them and that all I'm saying for now, TFL and take care all.

Hello all people in blog land, I hope you are well. I have some work to do later, I have already made samurai trousers(Hakama, they are just the coolest I am going to convert the pattern for PJs) I have the jacket to make yet and I have to cut the pattern out for DDs friend jacket luckily her Nana is a whiz with the sewing machine and will sew hers for her.

Here is the other LO using the same photo as the last LO, this LO is not acid free as I used normal graph paper and the medical bits from Ste's stay in hospital recently, again I have left the journaling as it will be something soppy, in the photo DH looks so sad to me, I know he is fed up of waiting to fixed and not being able to work.

Take care all.

Good morning, how are you today? Things are not to bad here, I have another tooth problem growing I will have to ring the dentist again and see if they can fit me in but the tooth problem is probably been inflamed due to having a cold. On the subject of colds as females call them but when a man has a cold it becomes man flu, hospitals seem to be aware of this as when DH was sent home from hospital with pain killers the brand name for the paracetamol was Manadol. I have heard the the hospitals give a prescription for housework to the girls, well thats what we end up doing when we are ill.

The LO I have posted today is another of my DH and is one of two using the same photo but giving both LO different treatments. I have left the journaling off for now as it will be something a bit soppy and personal to do with the situation with his accident. I found that when you don't have a circle template big enough you don't need to go and buy one I just dug out a dinner plate I got stuck with the rust coloured ring and had to measure it and draw the curve by hand I just about got away with it. I have few finishing touches on the other LO so I will post that one in a day or two.

Take care and thanks for looking.

Spot The Difference

Good morning, the weather is lovely today and I have managed to get washing on the line
again to save putting it in the dryer and consuming massive amounts of electricity.

I hated the flowers on the last LO I had posted so I decided to rip them of and do something different and here it is, it was a quick fix but I prefer it to the flowers.

Just a quick one from me today. Take care all and thanks for looking.

Good morning all, I hope you are all well. DH over did things yesterday and suffered last night and still is feeling pants. I have found some time to do some scrapping last night and as Sam was not at the table I could spread out the only thing is I still have to tidy away a pile of stash.

The LO I have put up today is one of DH, I hardly ever get photos of DH but at the mo I have two I am working on this LO is using a photo took while he was trying to escape the other one photo is one I was allowed to take, I will have to get my thinking cap on to decide how to scrap it.

I have to go now I have to deliver papers as a favor to DS as he is going canoing after school. Thanks for looking and take care.

Hi all, I hope you are well, I'm still running about to doctor and hospital appointments with DH, he had some bad news about his knee, the op he had has not been successful and he may need a false knee joint but we will cross that bridge when we get there.
The photos I have put up today are for a CJ entry, the CJ is titled a pinch of this a dash of that and is about food, I decide I would use some of those free recipe card you sometimes get through the door, once again my camera is playing up again so the photos are not great.
Take care all and thanks for looking

Hi all, I hope you are all well, life is still getting in the way but I have done a bit of scrapping. This LO is one that was threating to become a UFO (un finished object) so I made a rule that it had to be finished today, this layout has had so many changes of papers in the end I decided to choose opposites and finally dug out some old stash that had been banished to box and had not seen the light of day for nearly a year, also the the photo was taken at the folk law festival but I didn't keep a log of what I taking photos of so I can't remember which country they were representing, I thought they looked proud to be who they are and to represent their country.

I am being rushed to get of the lap top by Sam as she is sharing it with me, so take care for now and thanks for looking.
