Sing it Mummy!
WOYWW - it is still looking reasonably tidy after my massive clean up last week. The papers and cut outs are all from Crate paper and were used on my most recent layout (see below). You can also see my circle cutter (very useful) and a notebook in which I write details about the photos for scrapbooking, and the latest challenges etc. Last week I was asked about my tea drinking habits due to most photographs having at least one large mug of tea on them. The truth is I love tea, but can’t stand drinking it cold so I start crafting with a large mug of boiling hot tea, then get absorbed in crafting and forget about it until later by which time I have only drunk half of it and have to throw the rest away because it is cold. This happens nearly every day! The tea in this photo was boiling hot having only just being made…what are the chances of me finishing it before it goes cold?
Sketch Thursday sketch. It also fits with the scrap and stamp ‘buttons’ theme and with practical scrappers challenge to use at least 7 different things on your layout (two different papers, acrylic paint, metal letters, car stamp, stickers, brads, and a doodled border – I think that makes at least 7!). The journaling reads ‘Alex, as the ultimate vehicle nut and petrol head, absolutely loved the time we spent at Bakewell’s Showground Spectacular with al the lorries, differs, tractors etc, especially when he was allowed to sit at the steering wheels. 2nd May 2010’.
Pencil Lines sketch, and the theme of ‘shapes’ for Lots to do (circles and rectangles are featured on this page), and Crafty Cardmakers ‘orange, stickers and animal’ (I used a bird) theme. The page also fits with this weeks Scrap it with a song as the song this week was ‘Over the Rainbow’ and I chose to use the phrase ‘beyond the rain’ in my title which was ‘Look beyond the rain & have fun’. The papers are all from Crate paper the journaling reads ‘Despite getting soaking wet Alex was very happy playing in Endcliffe Park, especially on the bouncy slide. 13th Feb 2010’.
That’s all from me for now. Have a great rest of the week everyone.
