Pencil lines challenge 141

Here's my entry for this weeks pencil lines challenge 141 and it fits Shimelle's red day for the month of colour. I haven't managed to complete all of the pages I intended for this months challenge. I wanted to scrap this photo for a little while now, it sat on my counter waiting for the inspiration to fall out of the sky. Then suddenly it did last night, I finished the page at midnight. Why doesn't inspiration come at a time that would allow me an early night one day? I guess that will be one of life's mysteries, like how do you lose socks in the washing machine?

as my experience, all ideas are always come out LATE midnight. through school years, I finished my project during midnight most of time. at this moment, I don't have to worry about kids. I don't have to stand up and go cook. don't need to pick up them, don't answer tons questions from them.
i love you put little detail on this page, keys, circle trees,
love the colours you have used kathy
thanks for joining us this week

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.
