Scrap Whispers

I like to play along with the Scrap Whispers game and this one was much quicker, the last one took the best part of a year. This time we worked in three teams  and we even manged to finish ahead of time.Its fascinating the see how the pages evolve. This was my page To see the progress go here, I was on team one.

Oh Dear!

What has happened to my posts lately? I haven't done any, its not that I haven't done anything, its just that most of them have to be kept under warps for a little while. One thing I have done is make up some pages ready for photos. I have been inspired by Shimelle's 'starting points' and rather than do nothing while I wait for photos to come along for me to scrap, if I've got a base ready the page will come together quickly. Here are a few I have ready.
all of them made from papers left over from retreat projects or my scrap box.
Speaking of retreats, its only one week to the Scrapstars retreat. This is certainly a highlight in my social calendar. Lots of scrapbooking taught by lovely teachers. Catching up with other crafters and sharing ideas. What's not to get excited about. I'm also very excited as I'll be teaching the first class on the Friday night.
Tonight I have packed all the my bag with all the equipment I need to take and made sure I have …

What shall I do?

Yesterday, I had a whole day with nothing to do other than craft, but what shall I make. I sat for quite a while looking at some beautiful papers but would anything come? No , nothing, nada! Don't you just hate it when that happens? Then I remember my crafting buddy Caroline had sent me a link to a ladies blog earlier this week, and on it were the most adorable chalkboard cards, so I thought 'lifting' one of these would get me going again. I love them and they were so easy to make. Although the instructions are to decorate both sides, I only did the front and I stamped my woodgrain stamp ont Kraft card, which I them embossed with my woodgrain embossing folder.

This is one card that I can imagine I will use over and again for different occasions

Welcome New Baby

I haven't disappeared, I've just been working on projects that can't be revealed yet. In the midst of this activity one of my friends at work welcomed his baby son. As he was a few weeks early I was caught off guard and had to come up with a couple of cards. It gave me the chance to get out my Promarkers again, its been a few weeks since I did any colouring and now I'm hooked again. I've stamped a few images out and today I will be found in my craft room colouring in, among those images are a pair of new baby cards, one for a boy and one for a girl. I don't want to be caught out again.
