Lucky Me

I am such a lucky girl, back in September I topped up my mobile phone and got my O2 surprises code. I kind of forgot about it for a a week then thought I'd just see what I'd won. Usually it's free picture messaging or free calls to another O2 customer, not anything I use. This time I won a laptop,, wow wow, wait a minute a laptop? This sort of thing doesn't happen to me, so I waited and sure enough two days later it arrived. Imagine that! My excitement was very short lived, it was scratched on the top and actually a reconditioned model. I know I didn't pay money for it but if I had surely they have to say its reconditioned. I contacted O2 who actually use another company for the distribution of the prizes, it took two months for them to sort it out. Finally last week this arrived.
I've spent loads of time transferring all my files from my other laptop, which will shortly be put up for sale.
On the crafting front a couple of weeks ago pencil lines had they 4th birthday challenge and went retro to celebrate. The DT's favourite past sketches were shown and we were challenged to have a go. Sketch number 1 was used and this is the page I made.
I didn't link it in time, due to me taking too long to get the photos to the right size. I still wanted to show it.

WOW - so great to hear that someone really does win a decent (at least on the 2nd attempt) prize from time to time ... I normally win a week's free internet access even though my phone can't do that!

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.
