Creativity Boot Camp - Day 3

Oh! my, todays word challenge over at the Creativity Boot Camp was multilayer. What on earth did this say to me? Initially it made me think of winter clothes, it is said that to keep warm rather than add bulk with thick jumpers, lots of thin layers are better. How would I photograph this in June? I thought and thought all day, I was still thinking when I started to prepare dinner, I was feeling pretty down that maybe I would fail on day three. Then look what I saw! Dinner is still sitting on the counter half prepared, this little piece of inspiration needs to be recorded ASAP!
The photo was enhanced using Picasa, not bad me thinks for free software. Something is dawning on me, each day the project immediatly speaks to me, but what is recorded is something that comes later. Hmmm! what does that mean? Probably something like there are more layers to me than an onion, Hmmm.

Layers do unveil in at times and in way we least expect it. Great shot and use of the word multi-layer.

I'm not the only one with onions on my mind then? My first thought when I read the CBC word prompt was onions and Shrek!
Great photo!
Hope you're enjoying the camp!

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.
