I've mentioned about my handwriting, well I recently bought a manual typewriter which came in very handy for this LO. I don't intend to use it all the time, just when I think the design will be spoilt by my scrawl!!! The girl's have had such fun using it, they think it's great to be able to punch a key and see the printout straight away!
Edit - It helps if I can get my numbers the right way up, thanks Emma!

One of this month's Stuck? Sketches.
There's far less embellies in the Scrapbook Circle kit compared to Scarlet Lime, but when I look at all the unopened packs I have, that's probably a good thing. It also means you get to make your own and view the papers differently.
Steve brought me this necklace for our 10th Wedding Anniversary to remind me of when we celebrated my 30th Birthday in New York. He had forgotten that I bought myself the exact same necklace on that trip! Nevermind, it means that I have 2 to hand down to the girls at some point (they are like vultures near my jewellery box!)
... Modbury was castrated last week and we've had a few hiccups. The collar they put on him wasn't big enough to stop him licking a rash he had near the wound, so it got infected and he ended up on antibotics and a bigger collar.
Two days later I found him licking again. So time for the next size collar up which is huge!!! I have to help him eat and drink and I think he's thoroughly depressed! He can't get in his crate to sleep at night and is very restless, so I've taken to sleeping with him on the futon downstairs.
Roll on Monday when the stitches come out!

Did I tell you that I had starting subbing to Scrapbook Circle?? I really missed my monthly new stash fix (even if I wasn't doing anything with them) and think that their kits suit me perfectly!
So although I should be saving for the girls' university funds ...... I made this with the March kit - Vintage Market.

This was the sketch we were asked to used:
I don't often scrap DH and he was not at all keen about it ending up on the internet!!! He really struggled with turning 40 and I thought that needed capturing, so here it is anyway!
I made the pinwheels myself - my first time making them.

Just need to find a home for them now, think they're going to go in the kitchen.

I have never made anything like this before so I won't apologise for copying Christy's work completely (although my canvas is slightly smaller)!!
I love it and already have plans for a companion piece of my own invention!
