Creativity Boot Camp - Day 9

I am so disappointed with today's photo. Our daily prompt was drizzle with the miserable day we had weather wise yesterday it would have been easy to get a photo of drizzle. Today, not so much! Grrr. I thought I would take a picture of the golden syrup being drizzled into the Rocky Road I was making this evening. Great, I took about 24 pictures, not easy trying to drizzle with one hand and take the picture with another. The best of the bunch was this one.
I'm afraid I can't take anymore photos the cake is done, so with slight embarrassment I'm posting it. I don't want to miss any of the days challenges this far into the boot camp. I'll just have to claim an 'off' day.
For my crafty friends, I have made some more dahlia's for friends (whether they want them or not!). I think I've got it now.


I think you did great! This is a great representation of a really tricky theme!

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.
