What a Scrappy Life

I'm back ....

I know, I know, I've been lacked in keeping my blog upto date, but with school holidays I've not really managed to get any scrapping done.

I have managed to spend a couple of hours in my craft room and produced these.

So first up is two layouts using my lovely Studio Calico kit (SC), photos were taken at a recent visit to Webbs Garden Centre, with my MIL and DS.

I did this following a sketch from Sketchbook 2 on the SC site. The photos was taken last week in Birmingham outside Birmingham City Council offices. James just loves to pose, or should I say pose for a few shots before he gets bored, so I was really pleased to get this one of him.

This one uses the Scrapagogo July 2010 kit, of DS each a Mr Bubble ice Cream, which a blue ice lolly, with some whippy ice cream on top, with blue sauce over the top. Sounds awful but the kids in the street seem to love them - lol

Then this one I did using using some odds and ends, MME, Crate paper, Thickers, Webster's Pages alphas, buttons, Bo Bunny sticker (picture perfect), Jenni Bowlin Ticket, Maya Road kraft ticket.

Over on the UKS - GoGo thread - Beki mentions about her sister getting some yummy donuts from Krispy Kreme, and it got everyone talking about them, so not one to miss out, I decided to give us a treat.

So not to appear too greed, I only got 6.

Heres James, enjoying one of his, I must admit they didn't last long, and I wished I got 12 now - LOL.

Also decided that this month is going to be my start of my 'Use it Up' Challenge. I'm going to start my limit has 50 crafting projects, so layouts, cards etc to be included. I've got to the stage where I got way too much stash, and with getting both the SC and GoGo monthly kits I just need to use what I've got. I will not make any promises about not getting new CHA products - LOL, especially October Afternoon, Pink Paislee, Cosmo Cricket (only naming a few - LOL) but they will be very limited, not only for the lack of where to put things but for my lack of funds. I've had to seriously re-think about what I need/want to do over the coming months, so a few things have been cancelled and some more to be cancelled over the next few weeks. I'm seriously hoping that I don't have to cancel everything, to get me back on an even keel, but needs must I expect.

Right less seriously stuff now, I'm getting ready for my weekend in Preston with the girls I'm going to Spain with at the beginning of September, we are classing it has a 'pre-holiday' get together, I'm looking forward to seeing them and catching up with some other friends whilst I'm up there.

Right, must go now, will be back as soon as I got some this to share.

Thanks for stopping by ...
