Creativity Boot Camp - The End

Well now its all over. Creativity Boot Camp is no more, we received our last prompt today and fittingly it is smile. We all leave our camp enlightened, encouraged and inspired. I have liked the challenge of coming up with an idea unique to the word prompt, although by the time I get round to posting it somebody else had thought of it as well. On a couple of occasions I got there first. Is it really all over? Not on your Nelly, Madeline is going to continue with a weekly prompt, hooray Madeline! It will be a bit easier with a week to think up something, it all kicks off next Sunday. See the link in the toolbar on the right?
I digress today's prompt was smile. I think it is well documented here that I work with lovely people, mostly men, average age about 30. Yes I agree lucky me! There are only 8 women in the company (inc me). I'm 50 this year but they don't make me feel older, in fact I am usually in the middle of some shenanigans somewhere and yes I'm like the company mum. One thing that is always appreciated is my baking, cakes are regularly requested and I willingly take them in to feed them up. This week we had the auditors so I took cakes in a couple of days for the staff and the auditor. Well look what arrived today.

How gorgeous are they, and what on earth are these
I tell you they certainly put a smile on my face when they arrived. Here are some of my favourite pictures of smiles, all from my past pictures.
I could go on forever, but I think I got it covered. I have made a mini book of this journey and included all the prompts, my journaling and it will include the photos when I get them developed. I will post it once it is completed. THE END.

Love your pictures and yes this journey has made me smile also.
Beautiful pictures! I'm going to miss Boot Camp. I wasn't sure I'd be able to keep up but I was and I learned to look at things so much different. I'm excited for the Sunday prompts, too!

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.
