This second was was a make and take kit that I bought from 3 Jolly Scrappers, I sat in between classes to create this one.
I need to find photos for some of the other projects that I made but I'll post them as they are finished. I also need to catch up on my weekly challenges for posting, no time to relax.

I've also noticed that I have had over 1,000 hits to this blog. When I first started this I asked, who would possibly be interested in what I do or make. I also wondered if it would be something I would continue to maintain. I am enjoying sharing what I create but it seems people are interested in looking at them. I hope that some of the hits inspire others, because I have to admit without blogs I would have some very 'dry' periods.
If anybody is at the retreat this weekend that reads this blog please come and say Hi, it would be nice to see the faces of readers. you'll recognise me by my badge.
Here are some more of the oriental cards I made.
and a little gift bag.

The pencil lines sketches that are released every Sunday are helping me to get this done, it's true that when the photos are scrap booked they are looked at more often. I usually focus my creativity on my brothers family or to a lesser extent my travels, but I am getting a lot of joy from this one book that causes great amusement to everybody who sees it. Here to add further amusement is another page of me as a child.
