Guitar Heroes

A quick post with a page. I mostly scrapbook from sketches or magazines, I usually jig it up a little bit and don't do an exact replica. This one came out of my own head, it just needs the journaling adding on. My problem is that my brother loves me to make the pages and shows his album to anybody that can't get out of the door quick enough, but I want him to add his own writing. Most of the pages are sitting with empty journaling areas and I can't do it for him because a lot of the time I wasn't there. Like this one, it's obviously the boys on their Guitar Heroes game but he was there and knows the conversations, scores etc. Perhaps I need to give him a training sessions on writing things down.

The page looks better in real life, I must learn how to take better photos. The background is black and pink, I trawled all round the Papercraft show at Harrogate to get some 'rock' papers in boy colours and this pink pirate princess paper was all I could find that was anywhere neary 'rocky'. I'm happy with how it looks though, it's got the idea across. These boys are fast becoming teenagers so I'll have to start looking for boy papers with an edge.

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
