My Godson

So today I want to show you the page I have made for my Godson, Cody. He is such a cutie pie!!

I have used the train set going across the page. for the smoke coming out of the train I have used the itty bitty punch set and used that for the flowers aswell. I have used an embossing tool to go over the flowers on a soft matt to give them a 3D effect.

My Scrapbook is finally coming together! Got loads more to do though!!!

Today I want to show you a page that I have made about my nephews.

I love these photos of them and the one with their masks makes me smile all the time.

I have used chipboard for the letters and covered with paper now I am not very good at this and pretty sure there must be something that I am doing wrong with this! They are a mess but I have tried and from a distance you can't see the mess they are! hehe!!

Cocktail Time...

I started my scrapbook a few months ago, did one page and left it at that. Now I have my craft bug back I decided I really need to carry it on!

I love these two colours - Old Olive green and Rich Razzleberry - they are just lush and look so lovely together!

The page is about my friend, Mel and me having a love for cocktails - when ever we visit each other (they live in Durham and we are in Plymouth) we have to have cocktails. I have used the photos from our cocktails to show this. The little flowers are from the Itty Bitty set and look lovely with abit of bling!

Quite simple but cute!

Whale of a Time

Just a quick one today following on from the Foxy Lady yesterday I went on to play with the Whale from the same set and came up with this. Again simple but effective!!

Foxy Lady

Ok so I decided that after getting going I would continue with my quest to find the craft bug and play around with an idea I have had for a while. Wanted to keep it simple as I think this is sometimes where I go wrong with over complicating things.

Simple but effective I think!

Slowly getting back!!

I have been away for a few months trying to get my craft bug back. Summer is always a difficult time for me to get motivated and with our new garden being all finished I have spent most of my time out there (if I haven't been working!) So I am sorry that I haven't been around but I am slowly starting to get my craft bug back!!

It started yesterday when I needed something to do but didn't even know where to start let alone what to make. Then I remember something that I seen and played around and this is what I came up with...

I am a massive fan of the keep calm stuff and have seen this sloggan around on a few peoples blogs. I love it and going to get Mark to put it on my wall in the craft room (spare room!!)

Today I have had a play with the owl punch that I love so much and made a wedding card taken inspiration from a blog I have seen but cannot remember whos!

Right I am off for a cuppa and another surf to get some inspiration for a little girls birthday card!

Hope to be back sooner that last time!!
