Simply Red

I went to Sheffield Arena on 27th March to see Simply Red, how could I have forgotten to record that! What an amazing concert, Mick Hucknall's voice is incredible regardless of whether you like him or not. When an artist can get up and perform live and hold an audience the way he does that's talent. I would say that about anybody who can do that whether I like their music or not. I know most of his songs, but hadn't realised how much of my life I associate with the music. The two songs that really tugged my heart were Stars, the roar that went up when he began was incredible and brought everybody to their feet. Also Stay had me just mesmerised. I can still hear him singing and picture him in my mind two weeks later. I'm only sorry this is his last tour I would definitely be going again if there was another. These pictures were taken on my little pocket camera so I'm pleased with them, all ready to scrapbook in my March month.

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.
