My friends visited from Preston at the weekend, and we had a great time, first it was opening their albums and photo frames (which I forgot to take a photo of), there were really pleased with them and then I showed them my article in Scrapbook Magazine and it was great to get ohh and ahhs from them, especially when they are not crafters, and being life-long friends they will tell me the truth - so it boosted my confidence by their comments.
Then we had a trip into the City, for shopping and lunch then back home, to watch X-Factor and then back in to the City to visit some bars, we had a great weekend and I do miss them.
So onto some crafting, I did this the other weeks, but was waiting for the mini alphas stickers to arrive.
Supplies - October Afternoon - Seaside Collection,
I also used my Tim Holtz Rosette Die and added a sticker beach ball
This one used Scrapagogo September kit, the cloud idea was from a layout done by Lorraine, but I went one further and drew round them onto the cardstock, then 3D them over the shape.
Studio Calico - September kit - This it had a full packet of Maya Road framed chipboard in, which I glimmer misted and added the same colours to the cardstock, added different patterned papers to the back.
