Poorly poorly!

I have been struc down with the dreaded lurgy. Infact so struck down I have not touched paper for two days!! This is most rare for me at the mo as I have been embracing scrapbooking with great gusto!!!

The sofa has been my place today with Brucie and lots of hot drinks. Need to be better as this week I am at work...alot!!!

Why do I do it??

Well I went to my friends house last night and yup you guessed it I feel like total crappy poo at the mo. Damn that fizzy rose!!!! (was a very very good night though ha ha ha)

My inlaws friends heard from their son and all is well with them. They have been evacuated but they are safe thank goodness

Here is a LO using pics from a trip to Warwick Castle nearly three years ago. It just makes me smile :)

Right full fat coke is now calling me! xx

Yay! Its FFFFFFriday!

I have that Friday feeling today due to not working tomorrow and going out for a girlie get together later :)

Here is the second LO from the other day of Gorgeous George aged 7 months old and making a mess with Weetabix.
Its made with all old stash - I will get through it all someday!!!

On a sobre note the devastaion in Japan is dreadful. The inlaw's best friends son and his family live there and I am not sure if they have heard from him yet :( My heart goes out to all affected.

On a roll!

I completed two (yes thats right two) layouts yesterday!!!
As a novice and not very confident scrapbooker I am using scrapbook sketches to aid me and I have to admit I am having a ball.
Anyone who loves scrapbooking but wants some ideas google scrapbook sketches or scrapbook maps. There are some fantastic websites out there for inspiration and guidance.

Here is a layout of handsome Harry receiving his gold award back in 2008 - where does the time go????

A cardmaker who scraps or vice versa?

So I did a LO yesterday of the boys at Whipsnade a few years ago. I was stuck for inspiration so I have to admit I did use someone else's design with a few of my own touches.
The papers (which are old ones!) are very bright but amazingly match the boys shirts and I have used a flower on a boy LO!!!

I am loving scrapbooking at the mo. I think the whole idea of making something for me for a change is doing me some good and I am using up some of the stash I have had hanging around for years.
I have hundreds of photos which are either in an album or on my computer and I want to use them. I want to make something which shows off my family and all of our special memories. Life is so short but memories last a lifetime and I want my boys to look back at the LOs and remember all of those special times we had.
I will always make my own cards but I am thinking that scrapping is going to be my first love in the future.

Whizz by!

The last few days have really flown by. One minute its Wednesday and the next its Monday night - how did that happen?

Today was the first time since last week that I have crafted. First thing I made a card for a card swap and then I used the final bits in a kit to make this LO of my little man.
Honestly it is much better in real life - its just that the lighting was dire this afternoon!

I scrapped!!

I finally made a layout! I have not scrapped in months and today have finally broken that drought.
All of my cardmaking is sorted for a little while so I want to make some layouts for a while. The photo is of my darling Grandad and his brother. I have a few more old ones to scrap in the next few days....hopefully.

Last night we had Harry's Parents Evening and the boy done good. Infact in some subjects he is doing GCSE standard work and he is only 12!! For me though the most important thing was that he works really hard and is very very well behaved and according to his teachers he always is :)

Work is on the schedule for tomorrow so I doubt any crafting will be done unfortunately :( I seem to have really found my mojo at the moment and to be honest I am really enjoying it :)

All Inky!!

I am really loving using alcohol inks at the mo - its great to just sit and get mucky hands while making something.

This was a very very quick card I made yesterday afternoon while cooking tea (had to be careful not to get distracted!).
Just an inked background, stamped images, matted and layered on to a card blank, distress round the edges and add some wool.....hey presto!

I did have a flick through some photos last night as I have an urge to scrapbook. Got as far as picking a pic!

Working at the shop this afternoon and then parents evening tonight so I doubt any crafting will be done today :(
