Pencil lines challenge 133

At last I've had my ears syringed, it wasn't anywhere near as bad as it was last time. Admittedly that was about 20 years ago but it left a lasting impression. This time they put a little probe in my ear that was attached to a machine and this passed the water into my ear with a bit of a vibration. It wasn't at all uncomfortable and just sounded like bubbles in my ear. Everything is so loud now. Part of the problem is my ear canals are very small, the nurse even had to go and find a piece for the thing they look in your ear with, that was for a child. It's a pity the rest of my body isn't like that!
Here is this weeks entry for the pencil lines challenge 133. Since the bedroom flooded in January I have been methodically peeling the photos out of all of my albums that got damp. So far I think only one is very damaged, unfortunately it's one of the Kenya albums. It's been quite a job so far and I'm only half way through, but was has happened is that I'm revisiting all my trips and finding some lovely photos. I know they are there but as I have thousands of pictures I don't often look through them all. Isn't that the point of scrapbooking so that only the best and favourites are highlighted? For this weeks challenge I came across these pictures taken over two trips to Hong Kong.

I'm loving the core'dinations, whitewash cardstock, it's behind the photos on this layout. I've embossed it with the cuttlebug and sanded it to reveal the lemon core. Loving it long time (well until I find something else to love).

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.

Lost Contact

I've had no telephone or broadband since I last posted, isn't it amazing how we become so used to something then when it's taken away we can't live without it. I had made a few pages and cards to post but then no broadband. AAAGH! Anyway a lovely man came out today and it's all fixed, that nasty jack frost had caused the wires to break, fortunately it was outside or it would have cost me money. I spent my time wisely, I purged and organised. I've only had my craft room for 10 months and OMG what a mess. I have so much rubbish that I bought thinking it was a great bargain and haven't used,like cheap glitter glue coming out of my ears. I have every colour of Stickles that I love and always use, so why did I waste money on cheap stuff, anyway no more its gone. (Well actually its laying at the top of the stairs waiting to be boxed up and given away.) I've also outed a pile of punches, I don't need them now that I have my beloved Cricut, why oh why did …

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.
