What a Scrappy Life


Saturday, 20 March 2010

Times just flies by ... again ...

Seriously, where does the time go, its been ages since I last posted, so this might be a big one.

Right to begin, last week, after months of not even trying I did the UKS House Challenge, it was to scraplift a layout and have a 'friend' theme, so I did this, which is a scraplift from Angie (UKS and Scrapagogo DT), but for some reasons I couldn't get it to be uploaded. So here is the layout I did:

Taken in Spain in 2008 with me and my best friends on our girly holiday.

On Thursday night it was the Bromsgrove crop run by Liberty, and I managed to produced these two layouts, plus get some ideas on how to use my Scrapagogo March 2010 kit, which both Debs and Liberty where using. And found out how to do a paper flower, which I will do and upload later.

Celebrating my birthday with friends

Photo of my brother, with a 'mocked' photo of him catching 'the big one' I've decided to do an album with photos of Johnny, for my son, so that he will be above to remember him in the future.

I have also been doing some cards, this one I did today for my friend, she going through a rough time at the moment, and has ever I just what to be with her and give her a big hug, but has we now live far a part, we will have to make do with regular phone calls and texts. In our last conversation I remarked, that this time last year it was my turn to be on the phone to her, and leaning on her for support. It great to have life long friends (we've been friends since we were 11 years old) who we can reply on, in our good days but more especially in our bad one.

Just did this one as an extra one.

I have a lot of magnolia images that I've coloured in and it does save a lot of time when putting cards together.

I've also done some Easter cards. I will be posting them nearly the time. Now Easter cards are a sore subject with me, Julie insists that we should give Easter cards, and for the last two years I've been totally against it, I just think everything is far to commercial these days, but this year I have purchase a stamp and done some cards especially. I've only done a few and hope that they will be gratefully received.

I'm getting myself sorted for the Scrapagogo Getaway on 26 - 28 March, so looking to having s weekend just scrapping and generally having a laugh. And one of the pre-challenges is to produce a name badge and use the pizza box that the kits come in, so here is my sneaky peek, I'm quite pleased with the finished badge and will upload next week.

This mini tag is a new set from Stampin up, available to purchase after 1st April. There is a mini tag punch and a separate stamp set. Will be adding the catalogue this week (as soon has I find out how to - LOL).

So this week is going to be jammed packed, with my all day crop on Sunday, then 2 govenors meetings, a short and very quick visit to the NEC craft show on Thursday, then on Friday another govenors sub-meeting before I drive down to Hertsfordshire, for my fabby weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.
