Creativity Boot Camp - Day 10

Oh boy what a day I've had today! The auditors have been in and as the only trainer in the company I was it! Why do we put pressure on ourselves? I am my own worst enemy for this. Happily we were OK. Then I went for lunch and passed a message on for somebody, which unfortunately made me the mouth piece for some unwelcome news. This disturbed me a bit because the recipient is very dear to me. All I could think about was coming home to this (can you see my reflection in the first one?)
 Very unusual for me because I very rarely drink, but today this full bodied glass of wine was calling me. Fortunately everything is all OK with the world again. This led me nicely to our Creativity Boot Camp prompt for today, yes you're ahead of me full bodied. I did think of Guinness first, but I deffo wouldn't drink it, so I killed two birds with one stone took the pictures and I am now sipping the wine. Hic!
Have you made your card for the Craftwork Cards Wags sketch challenge? You've only got until Friday, when a new sketch will be published. Hop over to see some of the lovely entries that have been submitted.

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.

Guest Designer

Over on the Scrap Addicts Blog I am the last guest designer for this month. There has been a series of layouts posted this month based on the theme of large photos. My 'go to' photo size is the standard 6x4"but I also favour 3x4" for layouts with multiple photos. 
When I do use larger photos I like them to be at a stage in my scrapbook that shows a change in topic or location, almost like a new chapter.
I chose a very large photo 8 x 10 for this layout, with a large image like this all of the decorating can be lined up on one side but to make everything link up I like to overlap onto the photo.
I had the layout all planned in my mind but by the time I finished it I had taken it apart and then put together again three times! It was almost finished and i dropped glue onto the photo, so I had another photo printed and when I stuck it down the torch and arm had been cropped off the image. So third time lucky getting the photo right.
