I've been so busy and to be honest have had very few ideas for any of the vast amount of photos I would like to scrap, but the mood took me today and I had a tiny bit of spare time, and this is the end result!
I've used 'my minds eye' papers and bazzill flowers. I think the title is from K& Co.
Now that I've done one layout I'm hoping to get the 'bug' again and do a few more!

Another card for a challenge set by Sue, simply to use flowers!
This is the sketch
And here is my card

I'm fed up of being rained on just about every time I leave my house. It's always at school dropping off time, nursery collection time and just after school when the children want some well earned recreation and a little jaunt to the park!
Anyway, mini rant over, here's a layout I completed recently......
No there isn't actually...blogger wont let me upload it right now....argh!

this is the sketch
and here is the card....
I've been busy working and generally out and about with the kids.
I have managed to do a bit of scrapping though, I've completed the challenge for the chipboard swap over at Just Bex. I swapped with Tracy and got this........
I had a play around with it and decided to ink and emboss it with sparkly embossing powder and made this.......
Hope you like!

He opened with 'No surrender' and within 30 seconds had the crowd eating out of his hand.
Lots of the songs were from the new album, but he also did requests, picking signs held by the audience.... how many rock stars will do that? He belted out song after song with such energy, it's hard to believe he is 58.
I hadn't been to a been rock concert for ages, but boy was it worth the wait!

The next photo of all the stash doesn't really do it any justice at all, there is just so much!
There are several full scrapbook kits, loads of chipboard shapes and albums, tonnes of acrylic shapes and album. Lots of alphabets, gorgeous handmade jewellery, stickers and rub-ons galore, tools, and absolutely heaps of clear stamps, oh a £20 voucher too! I feel so lucky! I was utterly gobsmacked when it all arrived this morning.
Thanks again Kirsty!

It's Dan when he was about 18 months old...so cute and so blonde...yummy!
It's another gorgeous sunny day here, and what am I doing?........cutting grass and weeding. Think we might pop out later though for a picnic somewhere.

The photos above are my children going through their taekwando grading today.
Can you see the concentration on their faces? They were so nervous, but I'm happy to say they both passed and Dan now has an orange belt and Beth has her yellow!
Well done guys, you did really well.

Anyway, here's my first LO with it.
Sunday, 20 April 2008
Beth is back from a school residential that she went on for 3 days, she did sailing and archery amongst other activities and had a great time by the sounds of it. It's taken her all weekend to recovery though, she was sooooo tired! Bless.
I feel almost like I blinked and missed the weekend somehow, it seems to have flown by faster than usual, don't you just hate it when that happens?

This first LO however is a digi photo, but from about 3 years ago!
I've used the March scrapagogo kit....Love the scenic route tree paper!
This one is using scanned photos from early 2002 of my two little cheeky monkeys!
This LO is from the February scrapagogo kit.....I wasn't sure about this kit when it first arrived, but I have done loads with it and decided I really liked it after all!
Finally for today is LO with photos from 1999, when my son Dan was born.
Bazzill cardstock, DCWV patterned paper.

The challenge is to make a card in chocolate colours....yummy!
I picked MM paper, Hero Arts cupcake stamp and sentiment, and made the scalloped edge with my corner rounder. The scalloped circle is the super duper woodware punch.
I'm off to Plymouth shopping now, Beth has some 'build a bear' vouchers she is itching to spend!
See ya later.

This card is my take on the sketch challenge over at My paperworld
Penny Black stamp (again!!), primas and good old cuttlebug embossing!
I also did a LO today, but have entered it into a competition at scrapbook magazine, so will have to show you that at a later date!
Not sure who makes the patterned paper, but I love the colours, I got it in a PIF (lucky me!).
Penny Black 'Hot but Cool' image stamp, and Hero Arts Sentiments stamp.
Hope you like it!
I'm hoping to do some more scrappin' later, so watch this space.....

It's a Penny Black stamp called Daisy Chain, DCWV paper (last years spring stack!) and good old Prima flowers.
I'm hopefully gonna get time to do more challenges later...see ya!
