Here it is ...

... the LO I started yesterday. It's for my little sister who turns 10 in November, and I've decided to make a full album of 20 pages, of her birthdays, special events etc. This is the first LO I've done and is of her favourite bear, there's a hidden journaling tag for my step-mum to write some notes on. Just 19 more to go!!

Hmmmmm ......

I wasn't sure that I'd be able to do any scrapping this week as it's half term, but because the weather was so lousy yesterday the girls seemed happy to potter around and watch TV (yes, I am a bad mother!!) I managed to do these 3 LOs.

The first two I'm not so sure about though, I finished the first one and then decided I needed to put the rub-ons in the top right corner, and then afterwards wished I hadn't!

This one was done with my new SL kit and I'm not too sure about the colours. They actually look better in the photo, IRL they're quite bright, but you have to try these things I suppose! I've gathered the velvet ribbon to give some depth.

This one I am pleased with and even made the flower myself from crochet lace.

I also started a 4th LO, so hopefully I'll be able to share that with you later.

May 25th

Had a great day on Sunday, we were in Torquay for the weekend, and spent the day with my brother and his family - with a bit of rain and a bit of sun. So here's my LO, really pleased with the colour combo, although my mosiac photos are a bit wonky!

It's the 25th again!

Can't believe the date has come round again. Off to take pictures!

New Goodies!

Yummy goodies in the shape of May's Scarlet Lime kit arrived yesterday. I was really good and only bought the main kit this time as I still have plenty left from the last couple of months. Not sure I'll be so good next month though after seeing the sneek peeks of the add ons for June.

Thought I'd better get using up some stash so here is a LO using last months kit. The journaling reads about how Mia looked liked Madonna in the 'Hung Up' video when she appeared in a leotard and my high heels.

New blog

I was getting fed up at looking at all the lovely blogs out there, whilst stuck with my boring black and white one. So I had a surf around and came across this template. I'm just trying it on for now to see if it fits!

Just one LO

I haven't been up to much recently, there's a few little projects that I'm trying to catch up on, like my UKS Team's CJ and very excitingly I've got a paid comission to do a minibook for a friends daughter, so I've been sourcing stash for that. I did manage to do the weekly challenge on UKS this week, which I really enjoyed, using a photo that I had taken for PwL.
And talking about PwL, boy is it a tough class - I spend almost all my time thinking about what photos to take! This week's module is 'People' and the girls are getting quite sick of me pointing the camera at them and asking them to pose nicely. I normally end up with their tounges being stuck out at me and silly smiles!! Need to find other things to photograph next week!
