Creativity Boot Camp - Day 8

I am having a very tired day, I did my supermarket shopping this morning and now have a tired headache. I think it was all the excitement and driving yesterday. (5 hour round trip.) I also stayed up late last night to finish the pages and projects from yesterday, I need to find pictures for the pages we made. I did finish the little book we made, I added the final touches this morning, I post pictures when the silicone is dry. It is absolutely stunning, I can't stop leafing through it.
I woke this morning and threw open my curtains to see England flags flying everywhere on the street. It made me laugh because after all of the effort to try and get a picture for yesterdays fly prompt, these flags were flying right outside my neighbours door. Sometimes its the obvious that we miss, I can be forgiven, they were not there when I left home yesterday morning.
 Today's prompt is ornament, I think of an ornament as a decoration, either to decorate the home or ourselves. Here is my picture for today, this stands in my bedroom to hold jewellery. I don't like a lot of clutter around, so the jewellery sits in a box, I do like the stand as it fits the theme of my bedroom. I do leave these beads on it all the time. I decorated my decoration with some beads, which in turn decorate me. I think I've got this prompt covered.

Love your take on fly and the ornament is too cute. I had no problem at all with fly but can't seem to get it together with ornament. I'm also very tired today but I have the day off so I can just sit around and do nothing if I want!

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.

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.
