Pencil lines 162

At last I've managed to complete a Pencil Lines Challenge again. I love doing these challenges and try to do a page for each week but sadly over the last couple of weeks I've missed them. They were really good sketches as well 8-(. I've saved them to catch up with later. Initially I started scrapbooking to try and document all my travels, this has then diverted to a scrapbook for my brother and a scrapbook of me, so I went back to my original mission and got out travel pictures. The photos of this page are a bit pinky/yellowy, this is due to the synthetic lights the pages are actually white. You can get the idea though. I've realised that I have made three pages from my trip to Greece and each one I have used white bazzil as the background, I think its because it represents how bright everything was when I was there.

If anybody is looking for a fabulous day of crafting on 5th December with great tutors and a scrummy dinner, click the link on the left of my blog. These places are selling fast and there are only a few left. Go on do it, you know you want to!


I like your take on the sketch. It's very clean and clear, if there is such a thing in scrapbooking!

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.
