Some LO's to share

This is using Authentique Papers and was from a class at the Creative Heart and Soul Retreat by Tracie Hudson. Love the colours of these papers

This one is my granddaughter on her 11th birthday having a girly makeover with her friends.

This was another of the cybercrop classes on UKS and again is my granddaughter when we on holiday in the Lakes this summer

And another Cybercrop class - loved this way of using up your scraps. Its a rare photograph of me and my husband taken again by my granddaughter

Well its back to my mini book orders now 2 down and 4 to go

Fancy Pants Class

This was a class at the recent Creative Heart and Soul Retreat at Antsy Hall.
We all had a fabulous time and roll on the next one in Feb

Papers were all the fancy pants hopscotch range and I loved the paper pleating technique - its so much easier to make paper do what you want when its wet

Photos are of me and my husband on holiday with my daughter, her fiance, Abby and Oliver. My granddaughter took the photos of me and Mike. A budding little photographer I think

UKS Cybercrop

I've had a fabulous week doing some classes and challenges from the cybercrop on UKS.
This was a far more relaxed event than some of the previous allowing people to take their time with their work and pick and choose which classes and challenges to do.

I have been so lucky and won three of the classes.  I have to say I was gobsmacked.

The first was - The Name of the Rose by CoventryAnn.  This was a lovely class and I knew I would do a page for a memory album I am doing for my ex sister in law after the recent death of my X mother law. Although we had been divorced for many years she was nana to my children and we always got on very well and I will miss her so much - she was one of those women who never ever had a bad word to say about anyone

I loved hand making flowers again on this LO I really don't do it often enough
My prize for this one is a large kit from Creative Craft World. I'm really looking forward to receiving it

Next was a class by AliTS - The Adventuress - a Charity shop Bodice ripper.

Lots of inking and misting on this and I had to colour the branch and the twine to match. I mixed lots of colours to do the leaves and had great fun getting very messy

The photo is of my own little adventuress swinging through the trees on an assault course

The prize for this one was a surprise from AliTS - I wonder what it will be

and finally  An Autobiography by Ifa

I very rarely like any photos taken of me or scrapbook about myself. Ifa was so right in everything she said about journalling - who will know that I haven't used the latest papers or products but wont they want to know a bit about the photograph and wont my family want to know about me.  More journalling from me from now on

I loved this photograph of me taken at the Creative Heart and Soul retreat in March by Anna Bowkis.
My prize for this one was 2 classes from Shimelle

And finally don't you just love it when someone de-friends you on facebook.  Good news in my book because at least you know where you stand and they probably weren't really a proper friend and life is a lot easier without them
