Project 12 - May

Another fantastic sketch for Project 12 over on Scrapbook and Cards Today, I know its the 1st June, I'm only a day late posting it. Here was the sketch for May
this time I've gone a bit off course and instead of using my travel photos I've used pictures of the dogs my brother has owned. I love how the sketch lent itself to these pictures
Why the cream square on the left? It's for Robin to do the journalling, I wonder how long it will take him?
I went to the Craft Box to try and get some doggy papers but there was only the blue background one here. When you get good customer service it deserves a round of applause, and a mention. I asked Gill if there was and dog themed papers when I arrived, even though she was busy tidying, organising and serving she still combed the whole shop looking for something for me. I mean she went through EVERYTHING, as you can see the blue worked fine. I still have some more photos that I need to scrap and my last words to her were if you find something just hang on to it and let me know. Well I got a phone call last night and she has found 1 sheet from her own personal stash. How about that?  You wouldn't get that at Hobbycraft, they probably wouldn't have known what I was asking for. Thank you Gill for A+++ service.

I want to know if Robin did the journaling? Is Robin the brother, or the dog? Either one is a fantastic option for journaling on your layout. I need to make my hubby do that every once in a while 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 …


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.
