bank holiday week
WOYWW and my desk is still looking relatively tidy. It comes from having to put things away after each project thereby clearing the decks for the next project. You can see that I am part way through making a Christening card for my nephew using distress inks and an inkadinkado stamp. On my desk is also my cutting mat, some double sided sticky tape, ruler, pencil, craft knife and a roll of repositionable glue...an absolute must for masking images, and the inevitable mostly drunk cup of tea (now gone cold and needs to be replaced!).
Scrap and Stamp). To finish them off I made 4 holes in each one, stamped Happy Birthday onto them and added the sparkly stickers.
Bee crafty challenge of ‘Anything goes but you must use a digital stamp’, the green, glitter and stitching challenge from Stamp and doodle, the glitter and sparkle challenge from Crafty Cardmakers and follows sketch #123 from Nuts about sketches. The journaling reads ‘ We celebrated Alex’s third birthday with a family party at Grandma and Grandad’s house. Alex enjoyed the presents, laughter and fun of the Easter Egg hunt, playing with his new toys and especially the chocolate caterpillar cake – he liked eating the icing feet!’.
creative scrappers (I hand drew the red circle onto the background paper, uses white pen (corners and the left and righthand edges of the red panel) for Practical Scrappers, and was inspired by the line ‘Boy, I’m so happy’ from this weeks Scrap it with a song challenge. I had to use that line of the song as the layout was about two very happy little boys. The journaling reads ‘Alex was delighted and so happy when he realised that Owain was a petrolhead too – the two boys played happily together for hours.’ All the cardstock on this layout is from the Fancy Pants ‘rough and tough’ range. Have a great WOYWW if you are playing along, and have a fantastic rest of the week.
