A few bits............

........ to share.
I've been creating so I thought I'd pop on & share them with you!

Dean & Rachel having a bit of fun a couple of days before he went off to Afghan, I used some WRMK papers for this. The hearts are handstitched.

Self explanitory really! Olivia sulking in our porch!! :) I call her this when she's in a mood! Also done using WRMK & the butterfly is a die cut by Marianne (SP?)

This photo I have scrapped before but I like it so why not?? LOL
Crate was used for this & some spray mists by Tattered Angels, a technique I know I'll use again very soon!

Right, thats me for now, I've just blocked a sleevless cardi that I've been working on so once it's dry I'll show you it!

Thanks again for your comments, see you soon!

It's 'That' time of year ...................

.......... when the time has come for me to create one of these ..........

I have to make a new one of these every year & so far this is my favourite!
I used MME 'I Belive' papers & chipboard elements, little paper mache boxes (from Hobbycraft in last years sale!!) Stickles, Thickers numbers & Lilybee rub-ons. I was surprised how quick this was to make!!

I've also been busy creating a couple of box frames that I've had for year & came across last week, for these I used leftover scraps of October Afternoon, these now decorate the walls in my craftroom - hope you like them!!

That's all for today, I'll see you soon!

Long time no post!!! .....................

........... so sorry but I have been a busy bee! With D & R & our beautiful granddaughters being home for a couple of weeks then my weekend away with the girls from Sarah's then other priorities come first!
It was so nice to have Dean & family home, it was also really great to have him back on UK soil safe & sound from his trip to Afghan - I really miss them already!! :(

Right, back to what this blog was set up for in the beginning, crafting!

I've been busy doing just that! First off I created a page for the latest sketch challenge over at Sarah's Blog

This is Henry, our gorgeous grandson, who quite strangely could belong to our youngest son, he gets more like him everyday! I used the very nice BG Oliver for this page. If you would like the chance of winning an E-Voucher on Sarah's Blog then get yourself over there & play along, we'd love to see your take on the sketch.

At the weekend away at the barn I created 5 pages & also tried a couple of new techniques - thanx to Lou :)
Here's the inked ones, something I 'never' do cos' I like the 'clean' look .......... well no more I tell you!! LOL

I used the new MME Halloween range for these & the next one.

These are the other two that I did but, now I think they look rather bare - maybe it's cos' I didn't use ink??!! .............. what do you think??

Right, enough from me for today, I'm still trying to catch up on my sleep from the past few weeks!!

I won't leave it so long next time - promise!!

Thanx for popping in & for any comments you might leave me!
