Creativity Boot Camp - Day 5

The time  Bandits have been at my house today and stolen my day. I'm having a couple of days holiday and thought I would get my posting for today done much earlier. Where did today go? Well I did go out for lunch with my Auntie and Uncle, and I then bought myself a new little camera. For this project, I am using my DSLR, but in my bag, I always have my little Samsung point and press. It is quite a few years old now and eats batteries faster than I eat cake, (and believe me I eat it very quickly) so I have bought a Nikon Coolpix. OK I'm beginning to see where the day went.
 Today's prompt for the Creativity Boot Camp was grow, and I have gone with my first choice. I knew Jenny would be coming to see me today; I made a nappy cake for her to give to a friend. She was coming to collect it and bring her lovely daughter. I grabbed the opportunity to grab some pictures of her while she is tiny and before she grows. Boy was this challenging, so far, I have taken pictures of inanimate objects, and a tiny baby is a different ball game. Out of the 36 pictures, I took only a few that were of any use but this one is my favourite.
 and I quite like this as well.
 and this one.
Finally a picture of the nappy cake that allowed me to take these pictures of the little angel.

Our journaling prompt was :
As you listen to the music of your past, begin to think about what your hopes and expectations for life were when you were young and the world was wide open. {If you are young and the world is wide open, get crazy and write your wildest dreams right now.} 

The first time I associated music with anything wasn't until my 20's and then it was with somebody I loved deeply, or as deeply as you can in your 20's. The album was Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water and in particular this one. The words hold no particular significance but I can see myself sitting in his car as a passenger while we drove down the road, to nowhere in particular. What a classic to associate with a time in my life.

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.
 Firstly you will need to gather your supplies

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.

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.
