Wednesday night crop

Its been a little while since I share something, but at moment I have a lot going on. Last night with James off to the match I joined in again with the challange on Kirsty Wiseman's Blog, here is the sketch we followed. I love Wednesday nights scrapping.....................just me and my dog haha

I used some brand new Echo park christamas papers, not used their papers before but was well impressed with the quality and the colours are gorgeous, just added a little string, a couple of pins and some thickers. Love these cutie pictures of james when he was about 18 months old, bustin his moves on the the dancefloor at a christmas party in 1997..........awh where do all the years go??? 

Thanks Kirsty for the wonderful sketch and the inspiration. x

Well I have some creating to be getting on with today after a coffee and a catch up with Amanda, hope shes feeling well enough................although cant share right now, ooooh exciting stuff in my little world.

more Wednesday night scrapping

I'm loving my Wednesday night scrapping, with the help of kirsty's sketches,she posts sketch about 8pm on her blog................there is usually a challenge too. I'm well inspired and become strangely creative. The online chat was funny, even made James chuckle. Lots of gorgeous layouts created and all so different, made me think about how we all started at the same point and end up with something completely different. I have tweeked my layout a little from last night, actually just added some journalling strips

Today is my day off but had to endure the joys of Asda............I'm sure online shopping is the way to go

supplies used are mainly papers from Crate (that just arrived yesterday) some title complete without them  and a bit string, ooooh and some stitching.

Monday Monday

Well thats the weekend sadly over..........Saturday went to WeightWatchers to get weighed and amazingly lost another 4lbs, so now only got 9lbs to goal, but thinking maybe need to loose another half a stone on top of that....10 stone seems a more likely target.

Yesterday the girls came over for a spot of lunch and a bit of scrapping...........I came up with this layout using  October Afternoon papers, based on Wendy's Pencil line sketch (#206). Checkout Wendys blog, fab work from a oober talented lady..............this week she has some fab card sketches to follow, I must have a go.

We think mice are rather nice

James loved this Cat n Mouse game when he was younger, also combined it with a well loved song as a title.

Hopefully will be back with something from Kirsty's Wednesday night online crop......I love Wednesdays.
